Beginning October 1, 2015, all health care providers will be required to exclusively use the new Version 10 of the International Classifications of Diseases Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). This coding nomenclature is vastly different from ICD9-CM, which has been used for many years by U.S. physicians.
The AUA Practice Management Department, in cooperation with the Reimbursement and Regulations Department and the AUA Office of Education recorded approximately 6.5 hours of comprehensive ICD-10-CM Basic Training in October 2013. This education is comprised of four modules in MP4 format so that each practice can undertake this essential training at a pace that fits their schedule. The course content incorporate faculty lectures synchronized with PowerPoint slides. It also includes the live audience questions and the opportunity for each learner to participate in Audience Response questions about ICD-10-CM preparations using any device that provides access to the Internet.
