Thread: International Coding

    Unhappy International Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    Okay so I got my coding license and I'm going to be moving to the UK in the near future. I had looked at some coding positions over there, and they want ICD-9 but they also want some crazy acronyms lol. I was wondering does anyone know where I can find information on what courses I will need to take to meet the criteria for an international coding position? Help! Google is just letting me down lol.

    The UK utilizes ICD-10, and HCPCS codes. Check out this website, this is the coding certification for the UK...not sure if a CPC will help you there, unless you code for the US DOD.


    When you become proficient in I-10..let us know what we're all in for!

    Good luck!
