ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are medical coding classifications that are slated to replace the highly antiquated American ICD-9-CM medical coding system - ICD-10-CM will be used for diagnosis coding and ICD-10-PCS will be used for procedural coding.
On April 2, 2014 President Obama signed H.R. 4302
into law. This legislation includes a provision that "the Secretary of Health and Human Services may not, prior to October 1, 2015, adopt ICD-10 code sets as the standards for code sets." Therefore, the planned October 1, 2014 launch of ICD-10-CM/PCS in the United States will not happen in 2014, and we are awaiting clarification from the CMS as to what the official ICD-10-CM/PCS "go-live" date will be.
