Thread: ICD-10 PCS or not???

  1. #1

    Default ICD-10 PCS or not???

    AAPC: Back to School
    I understand that this is to be used for Inpatient Hospital settings only. Our providers perform services in the hospital. We are a Cardiology practice and we do Cardioversions, Caths, PCI's, stuff like that in the hospital. If the patient is an inpatient, do we have to code with the ICD-10 PCS codes or does only the hospital use those codes when they code? I know nothing about hospital coding. I just deal with the physician side of it. Some day I'll learn though.

    ICD-10 PCS is used by Hospital billing only. Your professional services still need to be coded using CPT codes.

    only the hospital will use the PCS codes for the inpatient procedures your physician will continue to use the CPT code for the physician claim.
