The senate passed a bill that will push the ICD-10 compliance deadline to October, 2015. This is the latest of multiple implementation delays of ICD-10 with the previous compliance date set for October 1, 2014.
Although the implementation date has been pushed to 2015, many experts are suggesting that healthcare organizations and medical practices take the extra time to prepare for implementation of the new code set.
Brighton College will continue training medical billing and coding students covering both ICD-9 and ICD-10 ensuring they are prepared for the workplace regardless of which standard is in place.
