ICD-10-PCS Coding
ICD-10-PCS is the part of change that will come along with ICD-10 implementation and becomes mandatory for all inpatient transactions from October 1, 2013. ICD-10-PCS is intended to replace ICD-9 volume 3 for facility reporting of inpatient procedures. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) is still used for all outpatient procedures. Healthcare Common Procedural Coding System (HCPCS) is still used as before. Common procedures that are not unique to the inpatient setting, such as laboratory tests and educational sessions, were omitted from PCS.
