Coding in ICD-10-PCS presents unique coding challenges. In order to assign the correct codes, it is critical that coding professionals have a solid understanding of the root operation definitions. In this webinar, we will compare and contrast the groups and the root operations, and learn the questions to ask as you code. We will discuss coding by root operation and coding from the tables directly to help you increase your coding accuracy and speed your decision-making process. You will receive one AHIMA CEU in Performance Improvement when you attend this webinar.*

Gain a clear understanding of ICD-10-PCS Root Operations

Topics to be covered include:

  • A discussion of how to differentiate between the root operation groups
  • A break-down of the root operation selection process within and between groups
  • A review of how to code the underlying objective, aim or intent of the procedure.
