HR 1701/S.972, the Cutting Costly Codes Act(s) which would “kill ICD-10″are still “active” in the 113th Congress and will be until January 3rd 2015. We must continue to monitor this legislation closely to ensure that the language is not included in any amendments or other bills that are considered in this Congress. In addition, we are being pro-active for the 114th Congress (which begins in January, 2015). Many times bills are reintroduced- which will likely happen with both the House and Senate versions of the Cutting Costly Codes Act. This is another reason why we must continue to voice a strong opposition to both of these bills now. We encourage our members to write Congress via the Advocacy Assistant.
