ICD-10-CM Coding of Chromosomal Abnormalities reflects the exponential growth of genomic testing and therapeutics. Diagnosis of these conditions often occurs in the obstetrical and pediatric settings.
Accurate and complete coding requires detailed understanding of how abnormalities are characterized (mosaicism, numerical and structural abnormalities), how tests are used to determine carrier or susceptibility status, and interpreting the unique language used by providers to identify conditions. Specifically:
- Learn to correctly code the results of genetic testing including genetic carrier status, genetic susceptibility, and screening tests
- Understand concepts related to chromosomes and gene defects that are used in the ICD-10-CM Code set
- Compare and contrast normal chromosomal arrangements compare with various abnormal arrangement
- Recognize the descriptions of numerical and structural abnormalities of chromosomes and locating the correct code
- Classify chromosomal abnormalities associated with sex chromosomes and locate the correct code
- Differentiate between problems with an entire chromosome and problems with a single gene and how the coding differs
- A proprietary downloadable chart summarizing chromosomal abnormalities.
- Course features interactive, explanatory images, audio recordings by industry experts, detailed explanations of the coding process, and check yourself quizzes to ensure material is being mastered.
- Bonus content includes carefully selected references from Merck Professional Edition.

“Lynn Kuehn, in my mind, is the Queen of Coding Education. She has the ability to take a difficult, confusing subject and make it very easily understood.” — Charlotte Bumgarner
“I have known Lynn a long time and I’ve been working with coders and those external auditors who audit coding for over 40 years. Lynn is not only the best at PCS coding but also with the Anatomy and Physiology that are involved to better understand what goes on in complex operations.” — Roberta Walker, Inpatient Coding Educator at Hawaii Pacific Health
“Per usual with Libman and Lynn Kuehn, these are excellent programs.” — Lou Ann Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCSP, CPC, FAHIMA
“Lynn is an inspirational teacher. She ignites a passion for coding within you!” — Kristen T
“Lynn, your explanations are clear, concise and to the point. Recommend it to any and all. It is a confidence booster!” — Leslie C
“I consistently learn from Lynn Kuehn. Thank you!”
“Lynn: I look for everything you have on the internet. You have a wonderful concise way of presenting material that is so easy to understand. All of us learn differently and your slides help us ‘Visual learners.’ keep up the great work. I will be ordering your flash cards! Many thanks.”
“Any of Libman Education’s courses are worth time and cost. Always walk away with a useable, clarity or reinforcement of subject matter.”
“I just wanted to let you know that the articles written by Lynn are a great help. I read them all the time and learn something new each time. Please let her know what a fine job she does.” — Kira G., RHIT, IP Coder III
“Lynn always has a way of getting the information across in a simple, understandable way!” — Janice N.
“Just heard Gail and Lynne’s PCS workshop – fantastic information and terrific speakers!!” — Jacqueline F., RHIT, CCS, DRG Validation Specialist
