How will developing basic ICD-10-CM
coding skills benefit me in my career?

This assignment helps you apply your knowledge from this week’s readings.  Success Tip: View the “ICD-10-CM Tabbing Activity” and “What, Why and How of Coding” videos in Presentation Materials and tab your code book before beginning this assignment.
As a part of your job in the medical office, you may be working with claim forms. Insurance companies are not able to process medical claims that do not have an ICD-10 code to show medical necessity for the service you are billing.  Developing basic ICD-10-CM coding skills may help you identify mistakes or missing information on a claim form.  Finding errors early can increase the revenue flow for your office.
