This course is the second of three Libman Education courses on ICD-10-PCS for current coding professionals. The first course “The Med/Surg Section” and the third course “Advanced ICD-10-PCS Coding by Body System” provide comprehensive instruction on ICD-10-PCS coding.
ICD-10-PCS, Part 2: The Med/Surg-related and Ancillary Sections is for inpatient coders with knowledge of the ICD-10-CM coding system. For individuals new to coding, consider Libman Education’s ICD-10-PCS: Introduction to Procedure Coding, a foundational course for students without previous coding experience.
