ICD-10-CM/PCS, HCPCS, CPT® code updates

Be the first to receive the latest updates on the 2019 ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, CPT® and HCPCS codes.

My primary reason for choosing Optum360 for continuing education is I love the EncoderPro — how to use it more efficiently as a coder, how to really make EncoderPro work for me rather than having to use several different books. It makes my job and my life easier.
