New AHIMA service will answer the toughest ICD-10 questions
The American Health Information Management Association's highly educated, experienced and credentialed experts are now available to the industry to answer the most challenging coding questions for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS, CPT and HCPCS.
AHIMA Code-Check, built on the association’s more than 85 years of industry-leading excellence and knowledge in health information management (HIM), is a new coding service that will answer coding questions from members and non-members within one business day. AHIMA Code-Check can be purchased by individuals and organizations on a subscription or as-needed basis. The service will debut Oct. 12.
“We are pleased to introduce AHIMA Code-Check to coincide with the early days of the ICD-10 transition at the time when there is the biggest need for additional services and expertise around the new code set,” said AHIMA CEO Lynne Thomas Gordon, MBA, RHIA, CAE, FACHE, FAHIMA. “AHIMA Code-Check doesn’t just provide answers to questions but will show all the key steps for how the correct code was arrived at. It can be an important and ongoing source of continuing education.”
