The Federal Government, through CMS, is driving the healthcare industry to upgrade to the ICD-10 standards. On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced with ICD-10 code sets. This transition is required for all entities and providers covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
