- Identify the code format, system structure, and design of ICD-10-PCS.
- Demonstrate the code building process through the use of the index and tables.
- Apply Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting of ICD-10-PCS codes.
- Given a case scenario, select the necessary statements to code and apply Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting to support an accurate code assignment.
Developed by one of the textbook authors, this course guides the learner through the accompanying textbook and includes additional examples, exercises, case studies and coding tips not found within the textbook.
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.
