The Coders’ Desk Reference for ICD-10-PCS Procedures addresses the challenge of translating common procedural nomenclature used by providers to the corresponding ICD-10-PCS coding terminology. Correct procedure coding is dependent on the ability of the coder to translate the terminology in provider documentation to the appropriate procedural terminology of ICD-10-PCS.

This resource is organized by common procedural nomenclature used in the hospital setting and then linked to the related root operation table(s); the procedure is described in layman’s terms, translated to ICD-10-PCS root operation terminology, and the corresponding root operation table(s) is identified.
  • Optum360 Edge — Lay description. Updated with the 2021 ICD-10-PCS codes, lay descriptions are provided for the most commonly performed inpatient procedures. Corresponding ICD-10-PCS root operations are identified and defined.
