What's the latest news from AHA Central Office/AHA Coding Clinic?

Were here with you, providing you with the newest information on the ICD-10 delay as it becomes available and providing resources to help you adapt to the changes.
 
Our understanding is that the CMS is examining the legislation and will provide guidance to providers and other stakeholders soon.  The plan not to address any ICD-9-CM questions is still in effect until such that the Cooperating Parties decide to lift this ban.  The AHA Central Office will continue to provide advice on ICD-10-CM/ICD-10-PCS and certain HCPCS codes and will reevaluate the scope of advice provided based upon the Cooperating Parties' direction.
