I received the email below from CMS today, and thought I would share it with you.
CMS has established a coordination center and an ombudsman to help providers
through this difficult transition to ICD-10. These are fantastic resources for providers,
so that they can resolve issues once they've exhausted their attempts to find the right
code for a situation. It's reprinted below, and we hope you find it helpful.
Because of CMS formatting that I can't change, it does appear a little funny on our site, but the information is so useful, I hope you'll look past that.
