This lesson goes into detail about the seven characters that constitute an ICD-10-PCS code and what they represent. The emphasis is on the Medical and Surgical section, but other sections are previewed. The root operations for this section are defined, and the groupings of these operations are explored. Detailed information about each root operation is included in Lessons 7 through 15 of this course. Before beginning this lesson, you should have access to the most recent version of ICD-10-PCS (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System).
