News Flash: CMS Reiterates ICD-10 Compliance Date is Firm

Marilyn Tavenner, the top CMS administrator, addressed the HIMSS14 conference as a keynote speaker the 10/1/14 ICD-10 compliance date is not moving.  CMS also stated that there will be no dual-use ICD-9/ICD-10 period after 10/1/14, similar to what happened with the 5010 implementation.  CMS said this was not a feasible option for them.  This is a timely pronouncement especially given the AMA formally opposed ICD-10, yet again.
