Medical Records Coding [ICD-9] Assessment


Medical Records Coding [ICD-9] Assessment

Skills Assessment

The Medical Records Coding [ICD-9] assessment uses the 2013 code book to measure a medical record coder's ability to consistently and accurately apply the proper diagnosis codes (ICD-9) to a specific condition, disease, or injury. This test focuses on several basic areas of the ICD-9-CM Book, Physician Coding, Supplemental Classifications - V & E Codes, Coding from Health Records, and ICD-9 Procedure Codes.

In order to code to highest level of specificity and accuracy an ICD-9-CM book is recommended to complete this test. For additional information regarding possible resources see the Center for Disease Control (CDC) at

Assessments for Medical Records Coding [CPT] and Medical Office Personnel Skills are also available.
