With the inevitable implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS on October 1, 2015 it is important for coders to continue and reinforce their education in the concepts, structure, conventions, guidelines and codes of the new classification system. One way to do that is to review and practice so that a familiarity level is established and it won't hurt so much once ICD-10 arrives. Utilize these quizzes for practice to get into a comfort zone and to identify areas for which you may need more education.
