Course Description

This is a comprehensive self-paced online course developed by an expert, certified trainer to provide an introduction to ICD-10 CM coding. ICD-10-CM is the diagnosis code set that has replaced ICD-9-CM Volumes 1 and 2. ICD-10-CM will be used to report diagnoses in all clinical settings.

Note that ICD-10-PCS is the procedure code set that has replaced ICD-9-CM Volume 3 and will be used to report hospital inpatient procedures only. This course does not cover PCS, but MLT Coding Consultants does offer an online ICD-10-PCS course. Click Here for details.
