Tuesday, July 7, Congressman Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) announced his agreement with the recently announced decision of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to create a year-long transition period during the implementation of ICD-10, the coding system tied to Medicare and Medicaid.

Representative Palmer said in a statement “I applaud CMS for recognizing that the implementation of ICD-10 without a transition period threatened to disrupt health care for smaller practices and in rural areas.
