Public Health Transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS

ICD-10-CM/PCS Transition: What You Need to Know

On April 1, 2014, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) (Pub. L. No. 113-93) was enacted, which said that the Secretary may not adopt ICD-10 prior to October 1, 2015. Accordingly, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10 beginning October 1, 2015. The rule will also require HIPAA covered entities to continue to use ICD-9-CM through September 30, 2015.
CDC's ICD-10 Transition Workgroup will update this website once a transition date is determined.


ICD9 to ICD10 logo

  • The transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS will take place at a later date.
  • All users will transition on the same date
  • If your program is covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) then transitioning to ICD-10 code sets is mandatory (How do I know if I am covered by HIPAA?)
  • ICD-10 was implemented for mortality reporting in the U.S. in 1999
  • CDC has created the ICD-10 Transition Workgroup to help facilitate CDC's transition to the new code sets

How do I know if my program will be affected by the transition?
