October 1 marked the beginning dates of service for using the new ICD-10 coding system. AMS wants to hear from you if you are encountering problems. Simply send an email to email@example.com. Also, after receiving several requests/concerns about the potential for short-term cash flow problems, AMS has partnered with First Security Bank to offer AMS members an ICD-10 Line of Credit financing solution. First Security Bank has loan officers who are already familiar with the ICD-10 issue and understand the potential problems that clinics are facing. See the attached product sheet or contact First Security representative John Whisnant at 501-217-4554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
