    AAPC: Back to School
    I work for a clinic that is an FQHC and I was wondering if anyone knows if we are going to have to use both the ICD-10 CM and the ICD-10 PCS books. I am so confused that I am not sure what is needed.

    you will need the ICD-10 CM book for the diagnosis, and the ICD-10 PCS only for inpatient facility billing of procedures.

    Wink Confused with reference to ICD-10 PCS

    I agree with Michelle - ICD-10 PCS is used strictly for inpatient coding regarding operations (surgical procedures). Previously ICD-9 included volumes 1,2, and 3. Volume 3 is now separate. Also, ICD-9 volume 3 was never used by physicians or clinics. The same principle applies for ICD-10 PCS. Physicians and clinics will continue using CPT books for surgical procedures.
