The Obama Administration has been reviewing regulations issued late in the Bush Administration, including HHS final rules published January 16, 2009 that mandate the use of updated diagnosis and procedure codes (the ICD-10-CM rule) and updated standards for electronic health care and pharmacy transactions under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The Administration has decided not to delay implementation of these final rules or reopen the rules for comment.
