JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario Workbook: 2018 PCS® Edition

Real-world coding simulation to sharpen your coding skills

JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario Workbook: 2018 ICD-10-PCS Edition 

With this workbook, coders will determine the correct 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.

This workbook also includes labeled illustrations for select cases to help coders by highlighting important anatomic details.

When applicable, cases will also include references to guidance from the 2018 Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting, Coding Clinic, and the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS manuals.

These 52 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.

This book will help coders by:

  • Simulating real-world coding by actively reporting ICD-10-CM and CPT 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 certain standards, bundling policies, and coding guidelines necessary for compliance
