ICD-10 Implementation Resources
On January 15, 2009, the final rule was published adopting the International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD-10) for reporting patient diagnoses and hospital inpatient procedures. This will replace ICD-9-CM.
The use of ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS applies to all "Covered Entities," that is health plans, health care clearinghouses and health care providers that transmit electronic health information in connection with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) transaction standards. The compliance date for ICD-10 is October 1, 2013.
