MODULE IV: Navigating Through ICD-10 Code Indexes to Meet Requirements

You will learn where to obtain the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) sanctioned ICD-10 codes that are required for all reimbursement. This module will also explain why codes from some “expert” and vendor sources can put you at risk. This module will walk you through several examples of the Indices and other tools available to you as desk reference materials. Simplified strategies for quick and easy navigation of the Indices will be included.
