• Congress Vote To Delay ICD-10

    Wednesday March 26, 2014

    UPDATE: On Thursday, March 27, 2014, the US House of Representatives passed a bill that would delay the implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS to October 1, 2015.  Bill, H.R. 4302, Protecting Access to Medicare, mainly adjusts the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) for Medicare payments.  The SGR outlines how much physicians get paid for their services.  However, the bill includes a seven line section (Section 212) which delays the implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS to October 1, 2015. 

    Action on H.R. 4302 now moves to the Senate for a vote.  Senators are expected to vote on the bill in the coming days.   

    The bill,  which would amend the Social Security Act to extend Medicare Payments to physicians and change other provisions of the Medicare and Medicaid programs and adjust the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), also includes a section that would delay ICD-10 to October 1, 2015.
