As of November 3, 2014 there are 20 states that have declared they will align with the HIPAA adopted ICD-10 code set effective October 1, 2015. It is important for stakeholder contingency planning, to be able to identify the ICD-10 adoption status of the other 30 remaining states. The implications of a state not adopting ICD-10 will require state stakeholders to accommodate and maintain dual processing systems.
In an effort to assist the industry in identifying ICD-10 state readiness & reiterate the need for a transition plan, WEDI has written a letter to each state governor with a carbon copy to the Department of Health and Human Services requesting the status of their state in adopting and/or transitioning to ICD-10. The letter also serves as an educational outreach regarding the impact to stakeholders if ICD-10 is not adopted. (Letter to the States
