Lesson 3_Coding BurnsLearn about first, second and third degree burns. It is important to review the medical record to determine the degree of the burn in order to sequence the code in the right order.
Lesson 4_The Neoplasm TableUnderstand the Neoplasm Table. Some statements used in documentation can be confusing. Coding guidelines for coding neoplasms are covered in this lesson.
Lesson 5_V codes and E CodesV-codes and E-codes are explained in this lesson. The student also receives guidance on searching for the codes and an explanation of when and how to apply the codes.
Lesson 6_The Hypertension TableThe ICD-9-CM classifies hypertension by primary or secondary and the nature, benign, malignant or unspecified. This lesson will provide a review of the coding guidelines and coding tips to be able to assign the correct diagnosis code(s) to hypertension an
Lesson 7_Coding Injuries and FracturesChapter 17 of the ICD-9-CM Coding manual classifies injuries, poisoning, other effects of external causes. This lesson will primarily focus on coding injuries and fractures
Lesson 8_The Table of Drugs and ChemicalsSometimes people take medication that will cause a reaction for one reason or another. Learn the correct way to sequence the ICD-9 code.
Lesson 9 The Endocrine System - Coding DiabetesDiabetes Mellitus is assigned codes from category 250. It is important to code the correct 4th and 5th digit to indicate if the patient is a Type I or Type II diabetic and if the diabetes is under control. There are many rules to coding diabetes.
Lesson 10_Multiple and Combination CodingCombination codes are used to describe two or more diagnoses or when when a diagnosis is assocated with a manifestation. A multiple code describes a single condition that requires more than one code. How a coder sequences the code is important. Let's find
