ICD-10 Delayed Until 2015

[MMA News Now, April 3, 2014] Along with voting for a temporary patch for SGR, the U.S. Senate and House have both voted to delay implementation of ICD-10 until October 2015. President Obama is expected to sign the legislation into law.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services had been pushing toward an October 2014 launch despite opposition from the AMA and other health groups.

Now with 18 months to prepare, Minnesota physicians can learn the fundamentals of the new coding system from two online, on-demand educational programs offered by the MMA in partnership with the Wisconsin Medical Society (WMS).

The programs, which were developed by the WMS, provide a general overview for all physicians along with specific information about how ICD-10 will affect 20 different specialties. CME credit is available.
