President Obama signed HB 4302 that delays the planned ICD-10 implementation.  This bill prohibits CMS from enforcing a mandate to switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10 until Oct. 1, 2015. 1
At this time, the law ONLY affects Medicare claims.  It is still unclear whether insurance companies will mandate the usage of these codes or not. 2
Regardless of whether ICD-10 is delayed or not, it is best to learn the ICD-10 codes as quickly as possible. Check our ICD-10 Training Session scheduled at the TCA Convention. 3
