Rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory polyarthropathies, 714
These are the ICD 9 codes for Rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory polyarthropathies:
The ICD-9-CM Volumes I,II, and III will become two new books in 2013.
The ICD-10-CM will be replacing the ICD-9-CM Volumes I and II. The ICD-10-PS will be replacing the ICD-9-CM Volume III.
The ICD-10 codes are much more detailed than the ICD-9-CM codes were.
Medical coders will need to know their Medical Terminology, Gross Anatomy, Pathology, and Common Anatomy Terms.
For those who can self-teach, consider purchasing an ICD-10 draft edition.
Reading through the ICD-10 coding guidelines, reading through the tabular index, and practicing looking up codes is a great way to get some hands on experience.
Also consider creating a list of common ICD-9-CM codes that you use on a daily basis and then create your own cross-walk to the ICD-10 codes that will replace them.
Use this opportunity to look up words and anatomy you may not recognize as well.
