The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Office of E-Health Standards and Services (OESS) won’t enforce compliance with the HIPAA 5010 transaction set until March 31, 2012, the agency announced November 17. The 90-day delay will not affect the implementation date for the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding systems, CMS said. That date remains October 1, 2013.
