With the ever expanding code set I can see where many would find it cumbersome but hopefully with the right teacher they find it easier to navigate. I don't think we will ever see one volume again.
thanks for your input, have a great weekend Paul
Yes: the proliferation of characters with ICD-10 and PCS has made manual assignment of DRGs more complex. I do understand that we need to use the book to manually assign some DRGs during testing for the CCDS, and I encourage those that will test to practice this prior to sitting for the exam.
