A colleague of mine has stated that Illinois Public Aid is accepting ICD10 codes already. It is my understanding that ICD10 will not be accepted by any carrier until 10/01/15. Is this correct?

ICD-10-CM codes may only be used for services provided on or after October 1, 2015. Claims containing ICD-10-CM codes for services provided prior to
October 1, 2015, will be returned as unprocessable. You must submit claims for services provided prior to October 1, 2015, with the appropriate ICD-9-CM codes.
