The ICD-10-CM Expert for Hospitals with our hallmark features and format makes facing the challenge of accurate diagnosis coding easier. The hospital edition contains the complete ICD- 10-CM code set, MCEs, and ICD-10 MS-DRG edits with symbols identifying codes for comorbidities/complications (CC), major comorbidities/complications (MCC), and principal diagnoses as their own CC/MCC. Supplementary appendixes available only in the expert edition include: 2018 deleted codes; POA coding and reporting tutorial; pharmacology listings of common drugs with therapeutic classes and indications; and code lists for CC, MCC and PDx CC/MCC. Delivery Option 2: Updated 2018 coding guidelines bound in the book; delivery before October 1, 2017 is dependent on when the updated coding guidelines are released. Delivery may be delayed beyond the October 1, 2017 effective date.
