Learning Tracks

Where do you start if you are not a clinician and this is all new to you? First, make sure you have a Coding Manual. Order this FIRST because this takes about 2 weeks to be delivered. We recommend the one we linked to (it is home health specific and includes multitudes of home health and hospice specific information), but any current ICD-10-CM coding manual will work. Current means current year if you are beginning the course prior to September. Beginning in August of each year, the new coding manual will become available. First thing to learn about coding in ICD-10-CM…the year begins October 1. As an example, if you are starting the course in April of 2018, you will need a 2018 manual. If you are starting the course in September of 2018, you will need a 2019 manual.

  1. Learn the terminology if you are not a clinician. (If you are a clinician, then skip right into step 2.) This course will help you learn the terminology and normal physiology of the body systems, pathophysiology of common conditions and documentation, and assessment tips necessary for a complete assessment including complete and accurate coding.
    • CodeProU: Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology for Clinicians & Coders
  2. Now it is time to get started with learning to code! The Essentials course begins with the whole concept of assigning a diagnosis code to a diagnosis, how those codes interact with the OASIS assessment, how to use the coding manual and how to recognize and apply coding conventions and general coding guidelines. This course lays the foundation for a successful career.
    • [CPU5510] CodeProU: Essential Concepts of Home Health & Hospice Coding in ICD-10-CM | LEVEL 1 | NEW – 12.03.17 | Replaces CPU5220
  3. Once you have had plenty of practice with the foundation concepts of diagnosis coding, you are ready to move on to Level 2. In Level 2, the coder will dive deeper into each chapter (1 – 21 or A-Z) of the coding manual, exploring pertinent chapter specific guidelines and applying them to home care and hospice scenarios. Also included are courses on correction of OASIS data (including coding) and collaboration.

  4. Almost there… time to review and take the practice exams to ensure you are ready for the exam. There are post-tests to complete for Level 2, but Lisa has also prepared a comprehensive exam review course called “Conquering the Complexities of ICD-10-CM.” This course offers more practice with more difficult scenarios and other issues found on the exam, like legal/ethical concerns, collaboration with others on the team and collecting data.
    • CodeProU: Conquering the Complexities of ICD-10-CM [LEVEL 3]
    • CodeProU: 10KAT – 2018 ICD-10-CM Knowledge Assessment Test (80 question online practice exam)
  5. Need more practice? CodePro U has workbooks available. Tutoring/mentoring, before and after the exam, is also available.
  6. Practice and get comfortable before you schedule to take your exam through AHCC (Board of Medical Specialty Coding & Compliance) at a local testing center or check the Selman-Holman site to see upcoming classes to take along with sitting for the exam at the end.
