    AAPC: Back to School
    I noticed that AAPC is NOT offering any training in ICD-10-PCS only ICD-10-CM -- is that because it will not be used in Outpatient/Physician Offices? I think it would be to our advantage to know both. What are your thoughts ?

    I totally agree. I do not understand why they would not do both.

    Because they are only physician based, and that is all that is used in the physician setting.

    The ICD-10-PCS is for inpatient only. If you want to learn the ICD-10-PCS you can go to the Ahima website. Ahima deals with inpatient and they are doing training on the ICD-10-PCS
