This program is designed to help the attendees gain a better understanding of coding in Chapter 15 ICD-10-CM Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Puerperium and the corresponding procedures in ICD-10-PCS, focusing on the coding guidelines and documentation required for accurate code assignment. The ICD-10-CM/PCS classification system is built upon many of the same conventions and guidelines as ICD-9-CM, but there are significant differences. Remember, preparation is the key, therefore, it is important for the coding profession to understand the changes in guidelines in order to be able to apply correct code assignment within Chapter 15. This program is designed for experienced coding professionals to gain that knowledge to be ICD-10 Ready.


At the conclusion of this program, participants will gain understanding of the similarities and differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM 15. This session will be instrumental in providing a clear understand of the changes in coding guidelines related to Obstetrics and Gynecology. Important topics to be covered:

  • Chapter 15 review of the ICD-10-CM code set: pregnancy and perperium
  • Review of differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 diagnosis coding for these chapters
  • Trimester and episode of care
  • Timeframe for abortion versus fetal death
  • Early versus late pregnancy
  • New code extension to denote specific fetuses in multiple gestational pregnancies
  • New codes for weeks of gestation
  • Key documentation issues and terminology for accurate code assignment
  • Enhanced coding query readiness
  • Query opportunities
  • Practice coding case scenarios with answers
  • Questions and answers



The ICD-10-CM/PCS classification system is built upon many of the same conventions and guidelines as ICD-9-CM. However, there are several differences in coding ICD-10-CM that must be understood and applied correctly to ensure coding accuracy. To prepare for ICD-10 implementation, it is important for the coding professional to understand changes to coding guidelines and code families within the code set chapters.


The ICD-10-CM code set has fundamental changes in structure and concepts that make it very different from ICD-9-CM. Within each chapter of ICD-10-CM are some key attributes that help the coding professional enhance their coding skills. Understanding the conventions and guidelines is essential to successful coding. The conventions and guidelines are the foundation for accurate code assignment. Within ICD-10 there have been enhancements to the clinical code descriptions that the coding professional must clearly understand and utilize. Each chapter within ICD-10-CM has its own unique guidelines and instructions that provide opportunities to gain further knowledge and understanding. A review of each of the 21 chapters within ICD-10 will help provide greater familiarity in preparation for the October 1, 2015 implementation date.
