AMA Calls for Two-Year ICD-10 Grace Period

While being prepared for the transition to ICD-10 is encouraged, the American Medical Association (AMA) at its Annual Meeting this week in Chicago has called for a two-year grace period for implementation.

The AMA continues to have significant concerns with the readiness of many providers, payers and other participants in the billing chain to implement ICD-10 by the October 1, 2015 deadline.  They are asking members to contact your Representatives and Senators to ask them to provide a grace period during implementation so that potential disruptions do not impact the delivery of care.
