ICD - 10 certification

  1. #1
    Default ICD - 10 certification
    New Call-to-action
    I found this online:

    Looking for one that's through an actually industry recognized organization. IE: AAPC, AHIMA, AMBA, ???. Does anyone know if any of those organizations have an ICD10 certification?

    Default I-10 certification
    I don't believe the industry leaders are doing certification in I-10 until after the implementation date of Oct. 2013. There is limited information incorporated into I-9 training regarding the I-10 transition that is coming but it is not advised to gain training until closer to the implementation as it is too much information to maintain for such a length of time.

  3. Wink ICD-10-CM Certification
    According to the AAPC website (ICD-10 FAQS), all currenty certified coders will have two years to get re-certified using ICD-10-CM (Oct. 2012 to Oct. 2014). They have the ICD-10-CM books available as well--guess I know what I'm asking Santa to bring me this year!

    The AAPC will recertify you through an online exam of 75 questions. You must pass the exam in order to keep your credentials. It is up to your where you get educated. AHIMA offers a certification to TEACH ICD-10-CM and PCS. I have taken it & received certification to teach. It is bery time consuming and expensive. So- unless you plan to teach, you dont' really need that type of instruction.
    It is a good idea to start learning as much as you can now. AAPC will start certifying codes in early 2012. ILet me know if you have further questions

  5. Default ICD-10 Courses

    Thank you for that information. I formally taught ICD-9 Introduction to Coding & Coding Guidelines Course as an adjunct instructor at a local college. I don't however, code for a living and wanted to get a 'handle' on the upcoming changes with ICD-10, so I can market myself to teach again.

    Might I ask, do you teach the entire program or sections of the billing & coding courses?

    Default Icd-10
    I will eventually teach the entire program (in person) probably in early 2012. Right now, I am breaking down ICD-10-CM into modules so all types of staff, physicians included, can review code specific to thier specialty as well as the basics. It's a lot to learn & not everyone needs to review ALL of the sections of the code set. I will eventually have the entire program online, split into modules. In a couple of weeks I will have the second module up. I will complete the other modules this year. I just think it's a little soon for big boot camps. I like small doses of ICD-10
    I am curious as to how educators plan to mesh ICD-9 and ICD-10 into curriculum.

    Since I have cpc & cpc-h would I have to take icd-10 and 10-pcs?

    CPC and CPC-H are physcian and hospital OUTPATIENT credentials. ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9 Vol 1-2, while INPATIENT coding (procedures, Vol 3 of ICD-9) will be replaced by ICD-10-PCS. Hope that helps

    AHIMA has an ICD-10 trainer certification program. I took the program as I was actively involved in the job I had at the time in IT related issues, I have since taken a new job and am on the Migration committee at my new job. I took the training in 2009, certified in late 2009, and had to pay again to re-take the certification exam to stay current with changes. They don't have an official credential for it, however I noticed that when I got my dues renewal notice that they put ICD-10 certified after my credentials.

  10. Default !CD-10 Trainer Certificate
    AHIMA offers ICD-10 Training Academies. After attending the 3 day Academy and passing the assessment you earn the AHIMA Certified Trainer Certificate.
