I am not sure where to get a valid answer for this question. It is about that time to start looking into purchasing our coding books for 2014. Looking at the book packages all of the 2014 ICD 10 books state the "official draft." Does anyone know if the 2014 ICD 10 book will have more changes before October 2014 when the new diagnosis goes into effect?

The 2014 data has been published by NCHS and WHO. "Updates to this version of ICD-10-CM are anticipated prior to its implementation," states the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/icd/icd10cm.htm The codeset may have some final minor changes to things like additional index entries, index entry corrections.
