“It’s imperative that you contact your representative today and explain how you cannot afford the cost and disruption of ICD-10 implementation to your business, especially now, when you are buried in myriad other bureaucratic burdens,” Texas Medical Association President Austin I. King, MD, said in a letter to members.
