Hi

I recently saw that the aapc is saying icd 10 books are now available. Im confused. I thought the codes still werent finalized. Is it worth it to purchase the books are should we wait til the official books are released?

the codes are finalized and the books are official they are just labeled the official draft edition. The codes are now partially frozen for ICD-9 CM and ICD-10 CM, therefore when the 2012 ICD-10 CM is released (as a draft) then that will be final revision until oct 2014. There were only a few minor revisions from 2011 to 2012, mainly just to add a few new codes to stay instep with new dx codes added to ICD-9 CM 2012.

First question has been answered. On your second question about the A&P through AAPC. It is 16 modules and it is taken at your own pace. Hope that helps. It has power points and audio and print outs for each module. I thought it was very interesting and a great refresher on the A&P.:)
