ICD-10 Medical Coding
Prerequisite: Ability to read, write and speak English.
The Department of Health and Human Services is calling for the adoption of a new edition of the International Classification of Diseases standards (known as the 10th edition) using Clinical Modification for reporting patient diagnosis. On Oct. 1, 2015, ICD-10 coding will change and allow for more detail with its seven alphanumeric characters instead of the 5-digit ICD-9 code set that has been used for the last 30 years. This overhaul of the national coding system will be the most significant change to health care in decades. Medical coders and billers will need to have stronger clinical knowledge and a greater understanding of anatomy and pathophysiology for this new system. This class applies to all health care settings.
