Take your coding to the next level with this very detailed study of Sections I.A., I.B., II, and III of the Official Coding Guidelines. Beginning with the conventions and ending with the criteria for reporting additional diagnoses, we will teach this material from the perspective of an auditor, giving you insight to help you avoid critical and costly coding errors. We will learn the skill of developing rationale to support our coding decisions based on the correct hierarchy.
