It seems as if finally–after three delays and endless back-and-forth arguments about merits, costs and complexities—the transition to ICD-10 will happen this October. To briefly recap:
- First, the deadline was set for October 2011. Then this happened in January 2009
- Then, the deadline was set for October 2013. Then this happened in February 2012
- Then, the deadline was pushed back to October 2014. Then this came out of left field last spring
Will the fourth time be the charm?
