Information regarding the ICD-10 delay continues to trickle out of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. CMS has announced that the partial code freeze for ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 will continue through October 1, 2015--the new planned implementation date. 

"The ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee (formerly the ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee) implemented a partial freeze of the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 (ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS) codes prior to the implementation of ICD-10 which would end one year after the implementation of ICD-10," states CMS. "There was considerable support for this partial freeze."
