Congress Chairman seeking colleague support to delay ICD-10!

From AHIMA:
We have received news that Chairman Sessions is looking to draft language to delay ICD-10. The Chairman is seeking support from his colleagues in Congress.
Call these legislators today and voice your support for ICD-10 in 2015. Note, this will be the most critical month in Congress to ensure the new code sets are implemented this year.
You can follow these 4 easy steps:
1) Call Dr. Michael Burgess at (202) 225-7772
2) State that you support ICD-10 implementation in 2015.
3) Use the talking points below:
· We need the code sets in 2015!
· A recent GAO report supports ICD-10 readiness.
· Small physician practices are expected to spend between 1,900 and 6,000 to transition to the new code set. This is much lower than previous reports. The study can be found on www.coalitionforICD10.org.
4) When you are done, call the other congressional leaders also.
