The ICD-10 Transition course curriculum is real-world training developed by professional educators and medical coding experts. The curriculum is easy-to-follow and includes real coding examples you may actually use on the job.
The ICD-10 Transition certificate program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to transition from the ICD-9-CM coding system for medical diagnoses and procedures to the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding system, as required by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)/Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
