Modern Healthcare

The Federation of American Hospitals expressed cautious support for the CMS‘ proposed one-year delay in the compliance deadline for the nationwide conversion to ICD-10 diagnostic and procedural codes.

In April, the CMS proposed extending the ICD-10 compliance deadline from Oct. 1, 2013, to Oct. 1, 2014, and the position of the trade association of for-profit hospitals is that a single year of additional delay could be just about right.
