The 2016 ICD-10-PCS Quick Reference Cards are the perfect tool to guide the coder through the code “building” process that includes essential definitions and conversion tables. ICD-10-PCS is an entirely different classification system based on the essential components of a procedure. Under the new system, codes are “built” from a number of variables, including body system, root operation, body part, approach, and more. These quick reference cards for ICD-10-PCS provide coding assistance at your fingertips.
- New—Optum360 Edge—New Productivity Tool. Body part definitions table.
- Optum360 Edge—Root operation conversion table. This productivity tool identifies the root operation(s) that correspond with commonly used suffixes describing procedures (e.g., -lysis, -centesis, -exeresis, -pexy, etc.) and with commonly used procedural terminology (e.g., advancement flap, arthroplasty, fracture reduction).
- Get ready to meet the challenges of ICD-10-PCS. The PCS coding system is built using very well-defined specific meanings for each term. This unique resource is a quick reference for the definitions of the most critical terms.
- The perfect companion to your ICD-10-PCS code book and coding software. Be confident of character value selections as you build ICD-10-PCS codes.
- Convenient set of cards. These quick reference cards are 8.5" x 11" double-sided sheets with ring closure.
- Save time. Important coding reference information is consolidated into one place in easy-to-use table format that includes: Basic PCS Character Definitions, Body Systems (Medical/Surgical section), Anatomical Region Definitions (body parts near joints), Root Operation Groups (Medical/Surgical section), Root Operation Definitions, Medical/Surgical section), Root Operation Conversion Table, Approach Definitions, Device Definitions, Body Part Key, Body Part Definitions—NEW for 2016, Device Key, Device Aggregation Tables, Qualifier Definitions for Amputations (detachments), Transplant/Grafting Tissue Type Definitions, Rules for Coding Multiple Procedures, Rules for Coding Discontinued Procedures, Administration/Substance Key.
- Map ICD-9-CM procedure terminology to ICD-10-PCS root operation terminology. The umbrella procedures in ICD-9-CM map to several alternative root operation in ICD-10-PCS. Know the key factors that will determine your code selection.
- Map eponyms to ICD-10-PCS codes. Many operations identified by an eponym include components that may be coded separately in ICD-10-PCS. Use these cards to help identify the procedure or procedure components included in these eponyms.
