  1. Here we go, at least 4 states and one of the most populous, cannot do ICD-10 claims with Medicaid. Again, someone needs to allow a phase in period of dual coding, pick either 9 or 10 for a while until everyone can get this figured out. This will allow providers to post a small number of claims to these lagging insurers so that cash flow and disruption does not occur. I have no idea who thought of this sharp cut off date but its a bad idea. Really bad. Its really not a good idea to do this.

  2. Re: ONC MU Stage 3 Final Rule

    Anyone else notice that the hyperlink (above) went “bad” shortly after it made the rounds?

    Wonder if Mr. H (or other readers) have insight as to why this might have happened.
