Senate to vote on bill that delays the switch

After the House of Representatives approved H.R. 4302 which delays the switch to ICD-10 for one year, to Oct 1, 2015, the Senate is set to vote on the bill on Monday 3/31 at 5:30 pm.

The specific language says: The Secretary of Health and Human Services may not, prior to October 1, 2015, adopt ICD-10 code sets as the standard for code sets...

A delay would be good.  Canceling the switch altogether would be better.
