ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation in 2015 is not out of the woods yet. ADVOCATE has received news that Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the House Committee on Rules, may be seeking support from colleagues in Congress to draft language that would delay the implementation of ICD-10. March is a critical month for ICD-10 advocacy, as the ICD-10 delay enacted in 2014 was tied to the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) fix, which expires this April.
As always, ADVOCATE will keep you updated on this and other issues impacting radiology as they become available.
