There are only two weeks left to submit comments pertaining to the proposed ICD-10 compliance date. The proposed rule
recommends delaying the compliance date for ICD-10 from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014. Submitting a comment provides HHS with valuable feedback on an issue that will impact all medical professionals. The delay is a result of medical practices’ concerns about their ability to meet the October 1, 2013 ICD-10 compliance date, based in part on the implementation issues with Version 5010 standards. Comments are due by Thursday, May 17, 2012 by 5:00 pm. To submit a comment, click here
