Coalition comments on CMS clarification of the July 6th CMS/AMA announcement
The Coalition for ICD-10 appreciates the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issuing a Frequently Asked Questions document that provides clarification regarding the joint CMS/AMA announcement. This clarification will serve to alleviate confusion around the provisions of the original announcement and ease the healthcare industry’s transition to ICD-10. Through continued collaboration among healthcare stakeholders, a smooth, successful ICD-10 transition can be achieved. The Coalition looks forward to transitioning to ICD-10 on October 1 so that the US can start leveraging the many opportunities anticipated by the availability of better healthcare data.
