Advanced ICD-10-CM Code Set Training

Successful medical coding requires that a patient’s diagnosis justifies the service or procedure the provider performed. This justification is referred to as medical necessity. Establishing medical necessity is the first step in third-party reimbursement. Under value-based payment models, coding to the highest level of specificity takes on even greater significance. Specificity in ICD-10-CM coding also plays a role in risk adjustment.

AAPC’s Advanced ICD-10-CM Code Set Training is designed to advance your ICD-10-CM coding skills. Students will gain an understanding of clinical concepts of commonly treated conditions and learn how to assign correct codes based on the diagnosis coding guidelines for outpatient reporting.
