SGR update bill delays ICD-10 implementation

On Monday, March 31, 2014 the Senate passed House bill H.R. 4302.  This bill gives physicians yet another temporary reprieve from a fee decrease and also delayed ICD-10 implementation.  The 120 page bill addresses it in one sentence “The Secretary of Health and Human Services may not, prior to October 1, 2015, adopt ICD-10 code sets as the standard for code sets….”  HR 4302 has other policies, that I’ll write about in the coming days.
