Breaking News: Alabama Legislature Passes Legislation to Delay ICD-10

The medical association, in a blog to its members, quotes State Sen. Tim Melson, MD (R-Florence) as saying, “that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is forcing this unfunded mandate on the health care community, and it couldn't come at a worse time.” Rep. Melson is the sponsor of SJR 79.
