HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued a press release announcing a proposed rule that would delay the compliance date for ICD-10 from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014. The comment period is now closed. Public comments are being reviewed and analyzed, and the Department will issue a final rule as expeditiously as possible.
Do you remember that New Yorker cartoon of a guy on the phone looking at his date book? (all right, it's an old cartoon, he still has a date book) The caption is "How about never, is never good for you?"
I think we can count on Oct 1 2015 unless Congress succumbs to pressure.
