Infographic: ICD-10 Delay: How is the industry reacting?

On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, President Barack Obama signed into law the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 to patch the sustainable growth rate formula for Medicare physician pay. Section 212 of the law delayed ICD-10 implementation until at least October 1, 2015.

Below is a snapshot of how approximately 1,250 health care industry professionals responded to live polling questions during a recent Deloitte Center for Health Solutions Live from the Center webcast.
