LMAO!! Too funny!!<quoted text>
"By now, physician practices and medical billing services know a change is coming on October 1, 2013 that will dramatically impact their medical billing and current way of doing business. That of course is the date set by the federal government for full implementation of ICD-10-CM, which will completely replace ICD-9 coding. Transitioning to ICD-10 diagnosis codes will be like learning a new language. Providers will need to be using ICD-10 coding for medical billing on claims based on dates of service from October 1, 2013 going forward–or they WILL NOT GET PAID"
"The new ICD-10 diagnosis codes take effect on October 1, 2013, and all healthcare providers are required to comply with the new regulations or they may have trouble with insurance reimbursement. These changes in the medical billing practices are significant enough to have caused marked slowdowns in billing and payment in other countries"
"As a medical billing professional, it is essential that you understand the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10. Repeat after me: ICD-9 is to ICD-10 as VCR is to DVR. In other words, ICD-9 is the old school coding classification system, while ICD-10 is the new kid in town."
"ICD-10 codes are much more specific than ICD-9 codes and this will impact payers who may modify terms of contracts, payment schedules, or reimbursement."
You just can't let go of that bone!! Can you say 'obsessed'??
Calm down, you ran off like the coward you are last evening. Don't even try with your ignorance again.
the primary point is you tried to blame ICD 10 on Obama.
When I proved Bush signed it INTO LAW you started your dissembling, something you always do when caught in a lie.
You and your nitwit idol, Randy Paul. Why's he wear a dead animal on his head??
