Project Main Details
The training will be a modified e-learning version of our current live two-day training for medical coders, billers, and other healthcare professionals.
IMPORTANT: The training will have technical and medical terms at times although it's not truly a clinical training (it's mostly the business side of healthcare). Below is a sample script. 2012-02-10 14:04:27 GMT 2012-02-17 12:00:00 (GMT -07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Hello and welcome to the General Code Set Training for ICD-10-CM. These modules will take you through all the chapters found in ICD-10-CM and provide you with a good solid understanding of how the code sets work and how to properly assign codes.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, better known as HIPAA, mandate our code set standards. HIPAA started as the Kennedy-Kassenbaum act. Many in the industry had been stating that they wanted to change jobs or had to turn down a job due to the fact that they had pre-existing conditions or a family member had a disease and they would not be able to get insurance coverage at the new job. The senators introduced the bill to ensurethat people would not be prevented from moving positions to better their life just because of a health condition. It turned into the HIPAA law by the time Congress was through with it, with many more additional rules than were initially anticipated.
Keep in mind that not everyone is a covered entity under HIPAA. Workers comp and auto have different requirements and that varies state by state. This will require you to be proficient not only in ICD-10-CM but also ICD-9-CM as well.
ICD-10-CM has significant improvements over ICD-9-CM. These improvements include:
Expanded injury codes – We currently have E codes to indicate external causes. In ICD-10-CM, these are V-Y codes (V,W,X,and Y) and the injury codes themselves have expanded. For example, we currently have codes for burns that cover everything. In ICD-10-CM they differentiate between burns and corrosions. Currently we have open wounds, but in ICD-10-CM we have lacerations, punctures, open wounds, and open bites.
Combination codes - We have many more combination codes. Diabetes is a good example. In ICD-9 we code diabetes and then any manifestation separately. In ICD-10, diabetes codes are combination codes. So if a patient had diabetic cataracts we currently need 2 codes. In ICD-10, there is a combination for diabetic cataracts. That is why there are so many categories and number of diabetes codes in ICD-10.
Laterality is a new concept in diagnosis coding for us. We are used to seeing it in CPT, but not in diagnostic coding. This leads to a great expansion in some coding sections – fractures, injuries, etc.
We will still code the same way we do today: look in the alpha and verify in the tabular. It will just take us longer and we will have to pay more attention to more things in the notes. We will all be like beginners again. Just give yourself time and try not to get frustrated with yourself. ICD-10 is just different, but can be mastered with practice.
