    Default icd-9 code sequencing

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any good references or purchased any good exercises in icd-9 code sequencing? So many payers are placing such emphasis on this when determining reimbursement I want to make sure I am interpreting the rules correctly. Thanks

    I always use the Guidelines that come with the ICD9-CM coding manual. They're HIPAA compliant and approved by CMS, the AHA, AHIMA, and NCHS. You can purchase the Coding Clinic for ICD-9-CM, published by the AHA. Also, the AMA puts out a good book called "Principles of ICD9 Coding".

    The coding guidelines are free of charge and can be accessed via the CDC website:
    They are update periodically.
