Let the countdown begin! The 2021 ICD-10-CM Coding manuals will be in effect on October 1, 2020. Please ensure that your practice is prepared by updating your coding resources. If you use an online resource, then these should automatically be updated for you.
For those of you who are taking a certification exam this year, you do not need to purchase a 2021 book. The AAPC exams change each calendar year and AHIMA usually changes their exams in the month of May. Please visit the AAPC and AHIMA websites for more information on the required manuals for your certification exam.
