ICD-10 Compliance Date October 1, 2015

On July 31, 2014, the Department of Health and Human Services announced the final ruling for the ICD-10 effective date as October 1, 2015. This ruling applies to all entities covered under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

BlueCross has established an ICD-10 program team to remediate all core business systems, surrounding systems, reporting capabilities and trading partner interfaces to accommodate ICD-10 coding after the compliance date. In addition, we will continue engaging professional associations across the state with whom to coordinate efforts.
