In the midst of all the challenges, healthcare payers appear to be more accepting of the ICD-10 transition. The complexity of the ICD-10 compliance is not lost on them, but they seem to be open to the challenges. It makes one wonder why there are more supportive of the transition than the providers.

Government Health IT brought this news to our attention in their article, “Are healthcare payers less vigorously opposed to ICD-10 implementation?” Some would argue that the resistance is not all that different, but they don’t have the industry giants and mouthpieces available to them like the providers do in organizations like the American Medical Association.
