Dear ACDIS members,

I want to remind you that comments to CMS on the FY 2011 IPPS proposed rule are due in by Friday, June 18, no later than 5 p.m. ET. The ACDIS advisory board plans to issue three comments to CMS on the following subjects:
  • Proposed FY 2011 MS–DRG Documentation and Coding Adjustment (p. 23872)
  • Proposed Change to the Severity Level for Acute Renal Failure, Unspecified Diagnosis Code (p. 23907)
  • Changes to the ICD–9–CM Coding System, Including Discussion of the Replacement of the ICD–9–CM System With the ICD–10–CM and ICD–10–PCS Systems in FY 2014; Code Freeze (p. 23912)
Commenting on the rule is easy and may be done electronically at the Regulations.gov website. Click here to submit a comment  The ACDIS advisory board encourages all members to comment and CMS welcomes comments from individuals as well as associations and groups.
