The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released a video reviewing ICD-10-CM coding basics. On the video, Nelly Leon-Chisen, director of coding and classification at the AHA, and Sue Bowman, senior director of coding policy and compliance at the American Health Information Management Association, review valid versus invalid codes, coding examples and resources, and how to submit coding questions. Health care claims must include ICD-10 codes for medical diagnoses and inpatient hospital procedures under a final rule that took effect Oct. 1. For more on the transition to ICD-10, visit www.aha.org and www.cms.gov.
