Alabama Lawmakers Urge for ICD-10 Delay
The Alabama Senate passed a Joint Resolution urging U. S. Congress to delay the Oct 1, 2015 ICD-10 implementation date. The resolution, backed by 30 Alabama state senators, suggests ICD-10 will “erode the relationships between the patients and their doctors,” and will create an ill-timed burden on a physician’s financial and staff resources. The resolution does little to change the mandated implementation, but shows a unified Alabama Senate opposed to the healthcare update. Alabama is the only state to petition for further ICD-10 delays.
