The temporary Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) "doc fix" bill cooked up by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) is no slam dunk, according to a media report from Politico.
The bill would provide a one year delay to the implementation of ICD-10. Thus far, it has been met with resistance from several advocacy groups including the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), the Chicago-based American Medical Association (AMA), and the Chicago-based American Health Information Managers Association (AHIMA).
