Learn to Code ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS in the same format created by Faye Brown.

This edition does not contain answers to exercises or quizzes.

The ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook is the only guide published in collaboration with the Central Office on ICD-10-CM/PCS (formerly Central Office on ICD-9-CM) of the American Hospital Association. ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are the HIPAA code sets that replaced ICD-9-CM in the U.S. on October 1, 2015.

Handbook content reflects revisions of the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting as well as AHA Coding Clinic® for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS content published through May 2018.

The handbook’s format and style of presentation follows that of previous editions inspired by the Faye Brown approach to coding instruction. The text leads students to logical answers and provides primary supporting sources. This logical approach has enabled the Handbook to become the most popular textbook for hospital and physician office coder training.

New features to the 2019 Handbook:

  • More than 50 four-color illustrations of anatomy and common disorders and procedures make it easier for readers to remember and absorb complex information.
  • The 2019 edition features new artwork to clarify spinal fusion surgeries and aneurysm procedures.

Each chapter includes an overview that highlights important points, as well as “learning outcomes” and “terms to know” features that help readers understand and absorb new information.  A “Remember...” feature provides sidebar comments or facts that alert readers to special information or perspectives. Expanded indexes enhance the speed of finding and applying new information.

Scores of Exercises and Quizzes

The Handbook contains more than 200 updated in-chapter exercises, case examples, and final review questions. All exercises are presented in clear, technically correct language that progresses from easy to more difficult.

Appendix C contains a complete workbook of case-summary exercises for more advanced practice. The case-summary exercises are based on actual health records and require readers to consider the patient’s condition as well as medical history, reason for admission or encounter, laboratory results, procedures performed, and the diagnoses listed. Readers must apply pertinent coding principles and official coding guidelines in making code assignments and designating the principal diagnosis and procedure for each episode of care.

Additional appendixes explaining reimbursement methodologies and “present on admission” indicators will be especially valuable to new students.
