Welcome ICD-10! Locating the Codes

September 30, 2015

Welcome ICD-10!

It is finally here, Now what? For all of our customers we want to offer some Mapping Instructions, and show you how to locate the correct code ICD-10 Codes with Find-A-Code and InstaCodeInstitute’s resources. Be sure you understand the structure of ICD-10 and what a complete code looks like. Instacode Institute has books available such as an ICD-10 Shortcut Guide and Specialty Code books to help you with your transition. Visit for more information on the resources offered for ICD-10-CM.

Remember: ICD-10-CM can be a complete code using 3-Characters or 7-Characters depending on the category.

Keep in mind: Using an unspecified code will likely not be paid, keep looking for a more specified code. (Even if someone said, Medicare said, they will not deny anything the first year, this is simply not true!)

Locating the Correct Codes in ICD-10-CM

Locating a code in ICD-10-CM is similar to locating a code in ICD-9.   To select a classification that has been documented in the patient’s medical record, use the following method. Start with a single code or a list of your most common codes. The mapping is the same with all codes (for a list of codes use Map-A-Code, see the following page).
