Course Specific Requirements:
This course is an Introduction to ICD-10-CM coding and is open only to second-year students admitted to the HIM program. We will learn diagnosis coding only using the book published by AHIMA 'Basic ICD-10-CM/PCS Coding, 2013 Edition'. The recommended code book is also published by AHIMA, 'ICD-10-CM Coding Book, 2015 Draft'. Any 2014, 2015 or 2016 ICD-10-CM code book can be used in the class since there has been a freeze on updates due to the upcoming conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10. There is an error in all the 2013 code books that I have seen in the OB chapter so I don't recommend using code books from that year. At the present time, it is expected that we will convert to ICD-10 on October 1, 2015. In the unlikely event that it is again delayed, we will change to the similar textbook by AHIMA that teaches ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM together. For this class, you must have both the textbook and the code book. The textbook teaches you the coding process. You use the code book to look up the codes.
