    Default Coding With Old Books

    AAPC: Back to School
    Ive noticed that some co workers work with 2007 coding books when there is the 2008. So Im wondering if i should say something?

    I've often found when I'm uncomfortable about telling someone that what they're doing is inappropriate (and what you've described is definitely inappropriate), it helps to phrase it as a question. For example, you could say something like:
    "Shouldn't we have up-to-date ICD-9 manuals, just in case some of these codes have been deleted or changed?"
    That will give them a chance to explain their reasoning for using out-of-date manuals, while bringing to their attention just one of many reasons why they shouldn't be using '07 ICD-9 manuals.
