By now medical coders have had a few months to get used to ICD-10, but even after gaining a level of comfort with the changes, questions can arise. Precise adherence to policies is vital to remaining compliant and keeping records up-to-date. For coders and other professionals who want to learn more about ICD-10, what are the best resources to get answers to questions that come up?

Where to Start

The first source you should consult is your supervisor, followed by industry standard publications or websites you typically rely on. For especially difficult or complex questions, you may need to delve a little deeper. Here are a few sources for you to consider.

Begin with the PCS Official Coding and Reporting Guidelines. This site provides a complete overview of everything included in ICD-10. This page on the Medicaid site details what changes were made between ICD-9 and ICD-10.

More detailed information is available from a few additional sources:

  • For the Centers for Disease Control’s complete International Classification of Diseases, revised for the ICD-10, visit the CDC website.
  • For a quick and easy way to look up codes or submit questions, see the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ICD-10 Code Lookup Page.
