Course Description

Coding from the "Neoplasm Table" in ICD-10-CM

This self-study medical coding course will discuss neoplasms, cancer and/or carcinoma with focus on the ICD-10-CM coding manual and the Neoplasm Table.  Medical Terminology relating to the neoplasm is also discussed to educate the student on the subject of cancer.   This class is helpful when preparing for a coding certification.

This course will benefit students in all levels of the medical field (medical billers, medical coders, and medical assistants.), from beginners to advanced. 

The focus of this course for the experienced coder is to gain additional knowledge in specialty coding.  Coding scenarios for neoplasms are provided to help the student continue his/her knowledge in the field of medical coding.  

For the less advanced student, it is a course that would help gain knowledge of coding guidelines as implemented in the coding industry and to build confidence and speed when assigning codes.

 

Medical coder Diana Wilson, CPC, CMC teaches coding the neoplasm not only for advanced coders but also for the less advanced student to help them gain knowledge of coding guidelines as implemented in the coding industry and to build confidence and speed when assigning codes. Students taking this course will: 1. review medical terminology in relation to Neoplasms, 2.demonstrate knowledge of ICD-9-CM coding techniques 3. understand the alphabetic and tabular structures of Volumes 1 and 2 of the ICD-9 book, with emphasis on the Neoplasm Table, 4. be able to look up codes and learn the process of using coding books when coding the neoplasm, 5. identify both primary and principal diagnoses and 6. be able to correctly sequence codes and have thorough understanding and knowledge when coding a neoplasm.

The demand for medical coders is on the rise, as is the pay. Identification of and payment for medical supplies and services depends upon the use of specific coding systems that help identify patient diagnoses, services, and procedures. Assignment of the correct code leads to fewer denials on physician reimbursement by the insurance carrier.
