The ICD-10-CM Coding Handbook is the only guide published in collaboration with the Central Office of the American Hospital Association. The Central Office is the official industry body that prepares the AHA Coding Clinic. The Handbook helps coders understand the principles behind the classification system so they can apply the official coding advice found in the Coding Manual. Academic and in-service instructors can easily arrange course outlines and study exercises around Handbook chapters to train new and experienced coders.

ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook 2006, With Answers (For self-study and reference.) AHA Catalog Number: 148024 $94.00 (AHA members: $78.00) 484 pages, 81⁄2" x 11", soft cover, ISBN 1556483244 • Contains official 2005 ICD-9-CM coding guideline changes • The most widely used publication for teaching entry-level and experienced coders • Includes Central Office advice on ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Authoritative Editorial Source The ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook is the only edition published in collaboration with the Central Office on ICD-9-CM of the American Hospital Association. The Central Office is an official industry body that participates in the editorial development, preliminary testing, and national committee and congressional hearings on ICD-9 and ICD-10 specifications and rules. Central Office staff are the nation's experts on coding protocols and prepare two official publications in addition to these coding handbooks: AHA Coding Clinic for ICD-9-CM and ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. The ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook helps coders understand the basic principles behind the classification system so they can apply the official coding advice provided by the Central Office publications.The ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook also continues the groundbreaking work of Faye Brown, a recognized coding expert who authored and contributed to the annual editorial of the ICD-9-CM Coding Handbooks for more than 25 years.Practical Teaching Resource The Handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with the three volumes of ICD-9-CM. Chapters 1-8 provide discussions of the format, conventions and current coding practices for ICD-9-CM as well as basic coding guidelines and introductory materials on the V and E supplementary classification codes. The remaining chapters work from the less complicated to those that are more difficult. Academic or in-service training faculty can easily arrange their course outlines around Handbook chapters. The Handbook provides more than 100 review exercises interspersed throughout the text and at the end of the chapters. These exercises describe additional information about a patient's background or present condition, and allow coders to practice their coding skills on examples that closely resemble actual patient records. The answers to these exercises not only provide the correct codes and principal diagnoses, they also explain why a particular code is correct or what information is most important in a certain case. The Handbook's appendix contains Central Office official guidelines for coding and reporting. The Handbook also contains exclusive ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS information.A book designed for...• academic programs • in-service training programs • in-service performance evaluations • individual self-instruction • workplace reference Exclusive ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Additions This edition contains information on the development and field-testing, as well as the structure, format, and conventions of upcoming ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding. It also identifies action checklists, reference resources and strategic implementation issues health information management professionals and provider organizations should consider as they transition from the ICD-9 to ICD-10 system.Major Content Areas for 2006 ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook 1.

These guidelines have been approved by the four organizations that make up the Cooperating Parties for the ICD-10-CM: the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), CMS, and NCHS. These guidelines are a set of rules that have been developed to accompany and complement the official conventions and instructions provided within the ICD-10-CM itself. The instructions and conventions of the classification take precedence over guidelines. These guidelines are based on the coding and sequencing instructions in the Tabular List and Alphabetic Index of ICD-10-CM, but provide additional instruction. Adherence to these guidelines when assigning ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes is required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The diagnosis codes (Tabular List and Alphabetic Index) have been adopted under HIPAA for all healthcare settings. A joint effort between the healthcare provider and the coder is essential to achieve complete and accurate documentation, code assignment, and reporting of diagnoses and procedures. These guidelines have been developed to assist both the healthcare provider and the coder in identifying those diagnoses that are to be reported. The importance of consistent, complete documentation in the medical record cannot be overemphasized. Without such documentation accurate coding cannot be achieved. The entire record should be reviewed to determine the specific reason for the encounter and the conditions treated.

Featuring a four-color presentation and student-centered approach, this medical coding book references ICD-10-CM/ICD-10-PCS codes and offers a new approach to teaching this skill.ICD-10-CM/PCS CODING: A ROAD MAP is flexible in organization—appropriate for traditional, modular, linear, and wheel courses—and progressive in its numerous exercises of varying levels. Chapters are constructed around three basic coding skills (abstracting, assigning, and sequencing codes) so students get a strong foundation in these essential competencies. Guided examples teach the coding process, while mini-medical records help students learn how to identify and abstract pertinent information from medical documentation.
