Just answer the questions.
Were Americans targeted and harrassed by those in power because of their political beliefs?
Were four Americans killed by terrorists and a lie ensued as the cause of their deaths?
Were reporters and news agencies' privacy invaded by the top law enforcer of the land without following due process?

So go rob a bank and apologize for not doing anything wrong, see if you get 10 or 20 years. Yep that should work.

The US Department of Health and Human Services has mandated the replacement of the ICD-9-CM code sets with ICD-10 codes effective Oct. 1, 2014. ICD-10 implementation will radically change the way coding is currently done.
http://www.aapc.com/ICD-10/
On January 16, 2009 HHS published a final rule adopting ICD-10-CM to replace ICD-9-CM in HIPAA transactions, effective implementation date of October 1, 2013.
http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/icd/icd10cm.htm
ICD-10 will increase the number of billing codes from 17,000 to 140,000.

ICD-10 is not the same as ICD-9.
ICD-10 will replace ICD-9.
Again what value is all these codes? Will it improve medical care?

Whoever it was I told to shut the hell up this afternoon, my apologies.

A simple "clam up" would have sufficed.

Less antagonistic.

But I was pretty angry at the time.

"back porch turd"
Why are you such a BSer. The head of the IRS apologized because the IRS was wrong. Despite the sequester the IRS had more monies to spend this year than they did last year. The sequester did not cut spending, it cut some of the increases in spending.

Whoever posted the Daily Beast article about Holder thanks.

It is amazing it hear a Attorney General stating he could not figure out it was ethically wrong to violate the privacy of and to ruthlessly pursue members of the press until WaPo explained it to him.

Bush-Bashing must get tearfully boring after a few years or so.

Doesn't it?

My God, I know that it would drive me nuts to continually blame all of bad history on just one person.

Have you considered getting counseling? You know...the couch?

It might help. Seriously. Good luck!

Apparently, it was already adopted in many other countries years ago but, from my limited resarch, the specific ICD-10-CM code adopted here has many more codes than other countries.

The ICD-9 had 17,000 codes. The ICD-10-CM has 155,000 codes and can be expanded with subsets.

It is supposed to be make coding more uniform with other countries but how that many codes can simplify what is already going to be a chaotic and confusing transition with Obamacare is beyond me.
