Instructor comments:

Students must have the 2019 edition of the textbook, as well as the 2019 education of the ICD-10-CM code book.   You will study the materials using the textbook and use the code book to look up the codes for your answers.  The class will have weekly discussion boards where you will code fairly complex cases using both the code book and the electronic encoder.  You will verify reimbursement with the Encoder, just like you will as a professional coder, and use the Encoder to look up Coding Clinics related to the topics you are coding.  The instructor will provide supplemental recorded lectures demonstrating how to apply the coding guidelines to coding scenarios.  There will be weekly quizzes and three assignments to reinforce important professional coding concepts.
