CMS: Last ICD-9 update before ICD-10 compliance date

Author Name Jennifer Bresnick   |   Date August 1, 2013
The final updates to ICD-9-CM codes will take effect on October 1, 2013. These updates will be in effect until the ICD-10 transition takes place on October 1, 2014. You can find the last official ICD-9-CM code titles, both full and abbreviated, posted on the CMS website.
“For those of us who have been maintaining ICD-9-CM codes since the code set’s implementation in 1979, this final ICD-9-CM code update is a historic occasion,” said Pat Brooks of the CMS Hospital and Ambulatory Policy Group. “We look forward to the implementation and maintenance of ICD-10 in 2014.”
