The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released a final rule for replacing the 30-year-old ICD-9-CM code set with ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS.  The final rule outlines the effective date as 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, and the compliance date for the two classification sets is established as October 1, 2013. A second rule related to the HIPAA transaction standards – X12 version 5010 and NCPDP version D.0  establish earlier effective dates, with the latest being January 1, 2013.  The HIPAA transactions software must be updated to accommodate the use of the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code sets.
