ICD-10 introduced with ICD-11

    ICD-10 is a national issue. No individual state can make a decision about this situation in the long term.

    That is actually fairly humorous and sad all at the same time. It is not a state by state implementation it is a HIPAA amendment, only work comp and auto can elect to not convert and possiblynthatnis what they are referring to, who knows! I just reply that it is no worries, the US will not be implementing ICD-10 and I let it go at that. The fact is we are implementing ICD-10 CM which is a different code set.

    Does Texas have it's own American Medical Association?

    I am as optimistic as anybody about the implementation of ICD 10 CM - not so optimistic that I am willing to hold my breath until October, but I digress! I'm ready and I believe I have my physicians as ready as they can be at this point. It's only the rest of the country I worry about (mostly the payors). Only acts of Congress, Obama, G.O.P lawsuits or CMS regulations stand in the way of progressing to the point where the rest of the world is (and was 15 years ago). I'm coming around... I truly believe there will be no further delays, though I wonder if we can get betting odds in a casino when we're all in Vegas next year?

    To be clear, ICD 10 CM will be implemented nationwide on October 1, 2015!

    *Unless that changes.
