On October 1, the United States will transition to the ICD-10-CM diagnostic coding system – the biggest change to medical coding in the last 20 years. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has created an online interactive learning module designed to provide broad familiarity with the ICD-10-CM codebook and the steps necessary to accurately report new codes for plastic surgery. This in-depth course begins with the basic structure and concepts of the new system and progresses into the specifics of coding the diseases, locations and causes that frequently arise within the specialty. By using “Now You Code It” interactive exercises, downloadable coding challenges and a CME exam, this single module will quickly help coders make a smooth transition to ICD-10-CM.
ASPS designates this online course for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
