ICD-10 Readiness

Libman Education has a suite of ICD-10 related courses to help you prepare:

Anatomy & Physiology for Coders is specific to your needs as a medical coder in preparation for ICD-10. The 12-week course provides a comprehensive and complete review of the major body systems, as well as coverage of common diseases and disorders, selected medical terminology, frequently prescribed drugs, and common laboratory tests.

ICD-10-CM for Coding Professionals highlights the key changes in ICD-10-CM Diagnostic Coding. Learn to translate your knowledge of ICD-9-CM to the new version of the classification system. The course provides exercises and case studies applicable to any clinical setting, and includes new conventions and guidelines with the focus on the expanded code set.

ICD-10-CM: A Quick Course on Classification Systems provides background of why we use classification systems in healthcare. Participants explore the characteristics of ICD-10-CM; features include interactive quizzes, easy to read format, comparisons, and examples.

ICD-10-PCS, Part 1: The Med/Surg Section, the first and foundational Libman Education ICD-10-PCS course, introduces you to the structure and design of the ICD-10-PCS system and the content of the coding guidelines. The course educates you on assigning codes within the medical and surgical section of ICD-10-PCS, with complete education on the 31 root operations used in the coding process.

ICD-10-PCS, Part 2: The Med/Surg-Related and Ancillary Sections is the second of three courses in our ICD-10-PCS series. The course introduces you to the remainder of the ICD-10-PCS system, and shows you how to code procedures in the Medical and Surgical-related and Ancillary Sections of the ICD-10 Procedure Coding System, or ICD-10-PCS.

As the third of three courses in our ICD-10-PCS series, ICD-10-PCS, Part 3: Advanced Coding by Body System provides a ‘deep dive’ into the specifics of ICD-10-PCS organized by body system.  Applying the basics learned in the first two courses (such as definitions of root operations, index and table concepts, and selecting the correct characters based on the documentation), ICD-10-PCS, Part 3 will teach you how to code.

ICD-10-PCS: A Quick Course on Table Mechanics provides audio and visual tours of the CMS electronic files; participants explore the features, format and organization of ICD-10-PCS. Course features include screen shots, interactive activities, and the use of video with audio to demonstrate how to use the electronic files for ICD-10-PCS.

ICD-10 for Post Acute Care Settings guides the learner through the fundamentals of ICD-10 as a coding system and, after covering the basics, explores the application of ICD-10 to the unique settings of post acute care including home health, hospice, and skilled nursing facilities.

ICD-10:  What Clinicians Need to Know introduces clinicians, physicians and physician-extenders to the new ICD-10 classification system. The course describes what is changing, why these changes are necessary, and the impact these changes will have on practitioners and groups within our health care system.

ICD-10 Assessments

The Anatomy & Physiology Skills Assessment helps you to easily determine your medical coders’ readiness to start ICD-10 training. The assessment measures anatomy and physiology knowledge, tracks and reports student progress, reports out individual scores in 12 unique body systems areas, and provides an overall score.

The ICD-10-CM Skills Assessment measures your skill level in assigning ICD-10-CM codes.  With 40 questions, it uses scenarios from various types of visits, such as emergency room, inpatient admissions, outpatient admissions, physician office, mental health, etc. to evaluate a coder’s comprehension of the diagnosis codes while applying coding guidelines.

The ICD-10-PCS Skills Assessment measures your skill level in assigning ICD-10-PCS codes.  With 40 questions, it includes procedures found in the medical and surgical-related and ancillary sections of the PCS.  Many root operations are included, and results are reported in 11 categories: the nine root operation subcategories in the Medical and Surgical section, the Obstetrics section, and sections 2-H of PCS.

Credential Exam Preparation Courses for Medical Coders

The CCA Exam Prep course is an eight-week, online course to help students prepare to sit for the AHIMA Certified Coding Associate examination.  The CCA is often the first credential earned by medical coders.

The Intensive CCS Exam Prep class is designed for students who wish to sit for the AHIMA Certified Coding Specialist examination. The thirteen-week course is offered either in-person or virtual and can be brought on-site for groups or facilities wishing to train staff members. Enrollment is strictly limited to ensure plenty of individual attention.
