UPDATE: CMS will Re-examine ICD-10 Timeline, Tavenner Says

Article

After speaking to attendees at the American Medical Association Advocacy Conference in Washington, acting CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner told reporters that the CMS will "re-examine the timeframe" through a rulemaking process. She did not say when that rulemaking process will begin but said the CMS would send details about the process in the coming days.

"There’s concern that folks cannot get their work done around meaningful use, their work around ICD-10 implementation and be ready for exchanges," Tavenner said. "So we’re trying to listen to that and be responsive."

Separately, Tavenner said she the CMS has had "good results" with accountable care organization applications and expects to make an announcement about selected applicants "at the beginning of the second quarter of this year."
