Medical Coding CEU Courses
&
ICD-10 Training

Learn by Doing

All courses are designed as a series of case studies with extensive rationales on how to each code is determined. We believe the best way to learn is through examples and problem solving.

The intended audience is professionally active medical coders and HIM students who have working understanding of medical coding. Here is a sample of what you can expect from our case studies.

Please see our Coding Tidbits for freely available information on a broad range of coding topics, from obstetrics to cardiology. They are great way to get familiar with ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PSC, and CPT coding.

Basic Instructions

This ICD-10 Training Course is essentially set up as a large practice exam. We did this because we think the best way to learn ICD-10 is by coding in ICD-10. Questions are structured as multiple choice, where more than one selection can be made. Each ICD-10 Training Course question is followed by a detailed rationale that should help you understand the why and how of each code assignment. At the start of each Chapter Section you will be asked to acknowledge that you have read the 2014 coding guidelines we present for that chapter.

Questions are assigned to a chapter based on the primary diagnosis. There are many secondary diagnoses that fall in several different chapters. Notably, Chapters 7 (Eye), 8 (Ear), and Chapters 20, 21, and 22, are only seen as secondary diagnosis codes, and do not have their own chapter sections in the ICD-10 Training Course.
