Question by BekindtoAnimals22: How bad will the insurance coverage get under the Affordable Health Care Act? Mine just keeps getting worse?
Its now been changed to only cover 70% rather than 80%. The copay and deductible are higher. The notification said that the company I worked for was being pressured to reduce costs due to the Affordable Health Care Act. So now I guess I need a supplemental health insurance policy. I guess that looks better on Obama’s statistics but it sure doesn’t help the people who need insurance. How does that save me money? Why does anyone support this bill? It stinks.

Best answer:

Answer by wider scope
Much worse than it has been even under Clinton’s managed care. Expect services and treatment to be further cut, as well. Pretty soon, we’ll all be standing in line at Wal-Mart for our yearly exams. I sometimes wonder if Clinton’s legislation, which he, also, promised would give us lowered costs and better care, wasn’t a set up to turn things so bad that the naive would call uncle. One thing is for sure, Clinton created such a mess that it now needs to be fixed on OUR behalf. No doubt that Bill’s promises fell flat. Expect the same out of Obama. Liberals are transparently dishonest.

Wall Township, NJ (PRWEB) March 25, 2014

HCS, a leading provider of clinical and financial healthcare information systems to more than 4,500 active client locations, today announced that all Interactant modules meet the current ICD-10 standards, more than six months ahead of the U.S. federal government deadline.

“Were ready for ICD-10 and ahead of the post-acute care market,” said Thomas J. Fahey, president and CEO at HCS. “Our clients can begin testing today to ensure ICD-10 compliance several months prior to the crucial deadline of October 1, 2014. We committed substantial resources to our software platform readiness and testing strategies that Interactant clients can leverage immediately.”

ICD-10, a comprehensive diagnostic and procedure coding system, will replace ICD-9 on October 1, 2014. ICD-10 expands available codes from about 14,000 to 68,000 for diagnoses, and from about 4,000 to roughly 87,000 for procedures. The code expansion is designed to sharpen specificity and accuracy in the assignment of diagnoses and procedures, foster better quality of care data reporting, and improve accuracy in billing and claims submissions.

HCS started preparation programming for ICD-10 in 2012. In late 2013 and early 2014, the company began internal testing and validation with federal DRG grouping, 3M encoding and various HL-7 interfaces. In February 2014, the ICD-10 update became an official enhancement to Interactant, making HCS ready for the transition well in advance of the CMS mandated transition date. This allows our customers to install early, begin training their staff regarding the new coding standards, and feel confident in their readiness to bill under the new standard.

Perhaps the biggest challenge facing providers are the numbers and specificity of new codes in version 10, and the fact that virtually none of the version 9 codes translate directly to version 10. CMS has provided a translation tool between the two code sets, known as GEMs (General Equivalency Mappings), explains Tom S. Visotsky, executive vice president of sales and marketing at HCS. Interactant has built-in GEM functionality to make the transition to ICD-10 an easier process for our end-users and allows both forward and backward mapping, Visotsky added.
