New 2013 ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook coming in August
A new edition of the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding handbook is scheduled for release in August. More than 800 new or revised diagnosis codes and 3,000 new or revised procedure codes have been examined in preparation for this revision. The content reflects the latest official coding guidelines. The coming edition introduces new illustrations of surgical procedures and a new appendix on reimbursement methodologies. The 260-plus case-summary exercises are based on actual health records and require readers to consider the patient's condition as well as medical history, reason for admission or encounter, laboratory results, procedures performed and the diagnoses listed.
