No one can escape learning ICD-10-PCS.
If you’re a physician, then you need to understand how ICD-10-PCS requires specific documentation — documentation that differs from what was sufficient for ICD-9. If you don’t get that documentation right, then you won’t be paid what you ethically deserve.
If you’re a coder, you need to know how to translate the clinical information from the operative report into the ICD-10-PCS system. One incorrect root operation character and your entire claim will be undermined.
Each of the seven characters in an ICD-10-PCS code has a purpose. For instance, a single code can denote a body part, operative approach, device, as well as the procedure. Therefore, a major component of an ICD-10-PCS code is character 3, signifying the Root Operation.
