On May 1 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) stated that it expects to “release an interim final rule in the near future that will include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10 beginning October 1, 2015.” This statement follows the April 1, 2014 enactment of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, which stated that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) may not adopt ICD-10 prior to October 1, 2015. In addition to announcing the new implementation date, CMS announced that will be canceling the end-to-end testing of ICD-10 previously scheduled for this July. CMS plans to announce opportunities for participating in end-to-end testing in 2015.
