ICD-10 Code MappingOn July 31, 2014, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) formally set October 1, 2015 as the compliance date for ICD-10 implementation. In light of this offical compliance date, we will modify our implementation plans and keep you informed of new details and resources through our website. We are committed to continuing our work to provide the support you need for ICD-10 and to ensure that our systems, business processes, policies and procedures meet implementation standards.
