My question involves how to code injury/extenal causes. Is there a website that helps to learn how to code these. This is a little confusing with new ICD-10.

Here are a few examples: S99.22A, S01.511S, S06.OXOA.

Thanks

those are all injury codes not external cause codes. external cause codes are found in chapter 20 and begin with the letters V, W, X, or Y. You will find the index to external causes helpful in locating these codes.
