THREE TYPES OF MEDICAL CODES

ICD Codes

The ICD codes are a system used to describe the cause of a patient’s illness, injury, or death. The WHO established this code in the 1940s, and each update adds a numeral to indicate the code’s version. ICD-10 refers to the 10th version of the code. Then, clinical changes are made to these codes, which make it possible to record a wider range of illnesses, injuries, and causes of death in detail.

CPT Codes

These codes are grouped into three categories. The first group is divided into numeric codes corresponding to different areas of medicine, such as radiology, surgery, and anesthesia. The second category contains alphanumeric codes identifying performance measurements and laboratory or radiology test results. Finally, the third category of codes is dedicated to emerging medical technology.

HCPCS Codes

The HCPCS coding system is essential for recording medical services, equipment, or procedures that are not covered by CPT codes. It is the official coding system for Medicare and Medicaid, and it is crucial for medical coders to be familiar with it. HCPCS accurately records medical procedures, similar to CPT codes, to ensure patients receive the appropriate level of care.
