Ah, the ICD-10!  For the non-medical, the ICD-10 is an exhaustive list of medical conditions, procedures, etc. used by hospitals and providers to generate bills.

For the medical, I’ll just say that my entire childhood apparently prepared me to code using ICD-10.

‘How is that,’ you ask?


Allow me to elucidate…

ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code V95.40XA

I think you get the picture.
Bring back any memories?  Honestly, I could search these all night but I’m tired and have to work at 6 am.  Maybe I’ll add more later.
Happy coding!
