SPECIAL POLITICAL UPDATE
Now with the final rule published in the Federal Register, establishing Oct. 1, 2015 as the deadline for ICD-10 compliance does that mean the long awaited code set is a “done deal?”
Bad memories linger and disappointment is still palpable among many in the healthcare industry nearly five months after the night of Monday, April 1, when the U.S. Senate voted to approve a measure that prevented draconian cuts to physician payments that would have occurred under the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula.
Of course, the bad vibes didn’t result from that in of itself, but rather the language in one section of the legislation that delayed the adoption of ICD-10 until at least Oct. 1, 2015. Could this scenario repeat itself next March, when the SGR again comes up for a vote? When it comes to the intersection of policies and politics, who holds the power over the adoption of ICD-10? Join Chuck Buck and Kim Charland for the latest edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays this coming Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 10 a.m. EDT as they explore such issues surrounding the adoption of ICD-10.
Join them as they welcome…
