ICD is a system of diagnostic codes for classifying diseases.

This bill proposes a two-year 'grace period', giving physicians and healthcare providers more leeway when submitting claims using ICD-10. This bill was proposed by Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Ala., along with 35 co-sponsors. The American Medical Association (AMA) voted in favor of the bill on June 9th. If it were to go through, it would take effect in October of this year.    Two Year Grace Period This new bill will not delay the implementation deadline for ICD-10 (October 1, 2015) but will require CMS to pay for claims even if inaccurately coded. According to the recently proposed legislation, the Secretary of Health and Human Services will be expected to provide,...
