Recently, Physicians requested Congress delay ICD-10 until 2017. The most recent delay of the code sets has already cost the healthcare industry approximately 6.8 billion dollars. We cannot afford another delay. Contact your legislators today and ask them to support the October 1, 2015 compliance date.
