ICD10 Training Syllabus

ALL ABOUT ICD-10 If you are already a coder or want to become one, here is critical information for your career consideration. In the healthcare field, ICD-10 coding training has become a very prominently discussed topic. ICD-9 codes for diagnoses have been used to describe diagnoses for over 40 years. The World Health Organization and government have collaborated now for several years to expand the codes in order to acquire additional data. Initially, the ICD-10 coding system was to be implemented in 2011, however, the sheer magnitude of the changes has pushed the transition forward to 2014 and as of April 2014, deferred until 2015. The ICD-9 codes will continue to be used so coders will need to know how to use both sets of codes. In fact they may use dual coding systems for many years. (Billing and coding with both ICD-10-CM and ICD-9-CM for workers compensation and auto claims do not fall under HIPAA mandates so may not feel the push to transition to ICD-10. For this reason proficiency in ICD-9-CM remains extremely important.) The new ICD-10 code system has many more codes to deal with. It currently contains 69,099 diagnostic codes compared with 14,315 codes in ICD-9. That number increases the number of codes FIVE TIMES. This ICD-10 Coding Program is for experienced coders who have been trained or have experience in ICD-9 Coding. If you are looking for training in both sets of codes, ICD-9 and 10, as well as CPT and HCPC coding, please go to the Coding Training Page here: Coding Training Course. Here is what is included: TIME FOR COMPLETION: 90 hours...
