Your Guide External Cause Codes: Overview of Codes & Guidelines

The Refresh With YES: ICD-10-CM External Causes Coding Learning Path examines codes and guidelines for external causes of morbidity, including place of occurrence, activity, and external cause status. Learners will also analyze the external cause codes of Chapter 20 and other related chapters in ICD-10-CM. In addition, the learning path describes the hierarchy of external cause codes if coders need to assign multiple external codes. We will also discuss applicable Coding Clinic references, as well as related examples and coding cases for practice.
