ICD-10-PCS Procedure Codes


ICD-10-PCS (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System) is a coding system used to classify procedures and services performed in healthcare settings. It is primarily used in the United States for coding inpatient procedures. Similar to ICD-10 diagnosis codes, ICD-10-PCS codes are alphanumeric and provide a standardized way to document and communicate medical procedures.

ICD-10-PCS codes are highly specific and provide a structured way to document medical procedures for billing, administrative, and statistical purposes. The codes consist of several characters that represent different components of the procedure, including the approach, body part, device, and more. If you need a comprehensive list of ICD-10-PCS codes, I recommend using official coding resources provided by organizations such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
