Decoding ICD-10-PCS is a comprehensive self-paced on-line course developed by an expert certified ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer to provide an introduction to ICD-10-PCS procedural coding system. ICD-10-PCS has replaced ICD-9-CM Volume 3. ICD-10-PCS is required for reporting inpatient procedures beginning October 1, 2015.
The material is presented in a manner as to “de-code” ICD-10-PCS to gain a better understanding of how to “construct” a procedure code. ICD-10-PCS procedure codes are all 7 digits and each character level has a specific unique meaning and requirement. There is greater emphasis towards the end of the course on learning the root operation component of an ICD-10-PCS code. A code book is not required to take this course since PDF links have been inserted to view the necessary tables needed to assign a code.
The course concludes with a 100-question final self-assessment test to assess your practical knowledge of the skills reviewed.
This course will benefit coders, educators, billing staff and clinicians who are interested in learning ICD-10-PCS coding. Immediate feedback is provided on all activities and assessments throughout the course, to reinforce your learning and encourage mastery of ICD-10-PCS coding in a format that works with your busy schedule.
A coding book is NEEDED to take this course, but is recommended.
The course concludes with a 100-question self-assessment test to assess your practical knowledge of the skills reviewed. A passing score of 70% or higher is necessary to obtain 8 CEUs (see CE Credits in top tab for more details).
