Purpose Prior to the enactment of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) (Pub. L. 113–93) on April 1, 2014, the health care industry was actively preparing to transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–10–CM) for diagnosis coding and the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD–10–PCS) for inpatient hospital procedure coding (herein collectively referred to as ICD– 10) on October 1, 2014. Many in the health care industry had invested time and resources in system upgrades, testing, training, and undertaking the necessary changes to workflow processes. However, PAMA required the PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Secretary to adopt ICD–10 no sooner than October 1, 2015. This final rule establishes October 1, 2015, as the new ICD–10 compliance date. This final rule also requires the continued use of the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification, Volumes 1 and 2 (diagnoses), and 3 (procedures), including the Official ICD–9–CM Guidelines for Coding and Reporting (herein collectively referred to as ICD– 9–CM), through September 30, 2015. a. Need for the Regulatory Action This final rule establishes October 1, 2015 as the compliance date for ICD–10. It also requires the continued use of ICD–9–CM through September 30, 2015. b. Legal Authority for the Regulatory Action Section 212 of PAMA, titled ‘‘Delay in Transition from ICD–9–CM to ICD–10 Code Sets’’ is the legal authority for the regulatory action. 2. Summary of the Major Provisions As noted previously, this final rule changes the compliance date for ICD–10 from October 1, 2014 to October 1, 2015 and requires covered entities to continue using ICD–9–CM through September 30, 2015. 3. Summary of Costs and Benefits In the September 5, 2012 Federal Register (77 FR 54664), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a final rule titled ‘‘Administrative Simplification: Adoption of a Standard for a Unique Health Plan Identifier; Addition to the National Provider Identifier E:\FR\FM\04AUR1.SGM 04AUR1
