Dear Medical Associations:
October 1st and the ICD-10 compliance date is only 6 days away! As we approach the transition date, your regional office and CMS want to provide you with the best possible service. We have all worked hard over the past year to prepare and are looking forward to a smooth and successful transition.
If you have any ICD-10 related questions or concerns, Keith Gilliam and Davonda Roberts will be your CMS Regional Office IV points of contact for ICD-10 related inquiries. Keith Gilliam and Davonda Roberts can be reached at Keith.Gilliam@cms.hhs.gov and Davonda.Roberts@cms.hhs.gov and will research and respond to any ICD-10 transition issues or concerns.
