JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario Workbook: 2021 ICD-10-PCS Edition

Completely updated for the fiscal year 2021 ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets!

JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario Workbook: 2021 ICD-10-PCS Edition provides an opportunity for coders to practice and refine their skills in a hands-on way by using a wide range of real-life case scenarios. Coders will determine the correct fiscal year 2021 ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes to report for each case scenario based on provided documentation, evidence of sufficient medical necessity, and any conditions present that would allow for MS-DRG capture.

A full answer key with coding rationale for each case allows coders to self-audit and find immediate answers to their questions. When applicable, cases will also include references to guidance from the 2021 Official Guidelines for Coding and ReportingCoding Clinic, and the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS manuals. These case scenarios let coders practice real-world coding without risking actual revenue. Coders can practice on their own or as a group, with enough cases for coding teams to complete one each week together for a full year. Coders will also have access to additional downloadable cases.

This book will help coders by:

  • Simulating real-world coding, letting coders actively report ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes for each case scenario
  • Providing answers for every case with rationales from experts who explain why certain codes should or should not be reported
  • Giving a refresher on standards and coding guidelines necessary for compliance
