PAHCS is confident that professional coders will be able to adapt to changes brought about by ICD-10-CM. Coders who have seen and worked with draft version of ICD-10-CM find that after a very short time they are easily able to navigate the new codes and the new format is actually easier to use and not nearly as confusing as some would lead you to believe.

PAHCS will ensure our members have access to all training needed to effectively code ICD-10-CM when it becomes effective on October 1, 2014.  PAHCS will offer webinars and articles in our Coding Network News, covering both general and specialty specific ICD-10-CM information.  Virtually all PAHCS ICD-10-CM training will be provided to our members at no cost.
