Health Leaders Media

Stakeholders and other supporters of ICD-10 are scheduled to meet in Washington, DC Tuesday with a senior official at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services with the hope of learning when the federal government is going to act on the oft-delayed medical coding set.

The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, signed into law earlier this month by President Obama, delayed implementation of the ICD-10 code set until at least Oct. 1, 2015.
