ICD-10 for ICD-9 Coders
James Madison University Outreach & Engagement has partnered with Career Step to help students familiar with ICD-9 prepare for the ICD-10. The ICD-10 for ICD-9 Coders non-credit course prepares medical coders for the new ICD-10 code set, which all healthcare facilities and physicians' offices must begin using October 1, 2015. The course assumes students are already familiar with the principles of medical coding as well as medical terminology, pharmacology, and basic anatomy and pathophysiology. Students will learn ICD-10 specific advanced anatomy/physiology as well as advanced pathophysiology and ICD-10 coding with guided hands-on exercises that allow students to gain real-world experience with the new code set. In addition to one-on-one support from AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainers throughout the course, students receive several industry codebooks.
