March 2014 ICD-10 Regional Forums Inclement Weather Notice

March 11, 2014

If the state closes offices due to inclement weather during any of the scheduled forums, the forum will be rescheduled. There will be no specific notification sent to forum registrants if the state shuts down in the county the forum is being held, so please check your local news/radio station for updates if inclement weather occurs. MaineCare is hosting regional ICD-10 forums this week. The purpose of the forums are to help Maine’s provider community get ready for the ICD-10 transition and answer questions you may have. Each forum will consist of a presentation about ICD-10. Topics include explanation of ICD-10, how it will impact providers, what providers can do to prepare, and a Q&A session. All providers, including administrators, billing staff, and clinicians, as well as other members of the health care community seeking information about ICD-10, are encouraged to attend. Locations, dates, and times of the remaining forums are listed below:

  • Wednesday, March 12th, 10 AM-12 PM: Lucerne Inn, Overlook Building (Dedham)
