ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook w/ Answers 2017 / Edition 1

The ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook is the only guide published in collaboration with the Central Office on ICD-10-CM/PCS (formerly Central Office on ICD-9-CM) of the American Hospital Association. ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are the HIPAA code sets that replaced ICD-9-CM in the U.S. on October 1, 2015. Handbook content reflects 2016 versions of the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting as well as AHA Coding Clinicr for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS content published through May 2016. The handbook's format and style of presentation follows that of previous editions inspired by the Faye Brown approach to coding instruction. The text leads students to logical answers and provides primary supporting sources. This logical approach has enabled the Handbook to become the most popular textbook for hospital and physician office coder training. Exercise questions and answers are presented in clear, technically correct language that progresses from easy to more difficult. Exercise answers in the case summaries list assigned and appropriately sequenced codes, followed by a comments section that explains how codes were assigned and why other codes were not assigned. Each chapter includes an overview that highlights important points, as well as "learning outcomes" and "terms to know" features that help readers understand and absorb new information. A "Remember..." feature provides sidebar comments or facts that alert readers to special information or perspectives. Expanded indexes enhance the speed of finding and applying new information. Scores of Exercises and Quizzes The Handbook contains more than 200 updated in-chapter exercises, case examples, and final review questions. Appendix C contains a complete workbook of case-summary exercises for more advanced practice.
