I have prepared few questions based on ICD 10. These are based on previous year questions papers and very useful for CPC Exam 2017 and also for CIC , COC , CRC Exam 2017.
These questions are also very useful for beginner students to practice their ICD 10 coding knowledge and skills.
Here we go…

The ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. This fact sheet provides background on the ICD-10 transition, general guidance on how to prepare for it, and resources for more information.
ICD-10-CM/PCS (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification/ Procedure Coding System) consists of two parts:
ICD 10 – CM
ICD-10-CM is for use in all U.S. health care settings. Diagnosis coding under ICD-10-CM uses 3 to 7 digits instead of the 3 to 5 digits used with ICD-9-CM, but the format of the code sets is similar.
ICD 10 – PCS
ICD-10-PCS is for use in U.S. inpatient hospital settings only. ICD-10-PCS uses 7 alphanumeric digits instead of the 3 or 4 numeric digits used under ICD-9- CM procedure coding. Coding under ICD-10-PCS is much more specific and substantially different from ICD-9-CM procedure coding.
ICD-10 will affect diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), not just those who submit Medicare or Medicaid claims:
- Claims for services provided on or after the compliance date should be submitted with ICD-10 diagnosis codes.
- Claims for services provided prior to the compliance date should be submitted with ICD-9 diagnosis codes.
The change to ICD-10 does not affect CPT coding for outpatient procedures.
A comprehensive listing of 2015 diagnosis codes can be found in the ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injuries (alphabetical) and ICD-10-CM Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries.
A summary of the chapters found in the Tabular List has been provided below:

||Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases
