Cardiovascular PCS Coding

Cardio PCS Course Package

What you'll learn

  • What to look for in assigning qualifier 6-Bifurcation for certain coronary artery procedures
  • Anatomy and interpreting the operative report for various cardiovascular procedures
  • Difficulties associated with Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Coding (CABG) coding
  • Types of bypass grafts (LIMA, RIMA, aortocoronary, etc.), associated procedures and how to read a CABG op note to determine coding
  • Clinical and technical information related to cardiac catheterization procedures
  • How a cardiac catheterization is performed, what associated procedures are performed with the cardiac catheterization and how to accurately identify and code these procedures
  • Details on the first stage palliative procedure done for hypoplastic left heart syndrome
  • ICD-10-PCS coding of the Norwood procedure
  • Details on the second stage palliative procedure done for hypoplastic left heart syndrome
  •  ICD-10-PCS coding of the Bi-directional Glenn procedure
  • Details on the third stage palliative procedure done for hypoplastic left heart syndrome
  •  ICD-10-PCS coding of the Fontan procedure
  • Various procedures performed to correct pulmonary artery stenosis and other TOF defects
  • Proper procedure codes to include device selection and approaches
  • An overview of endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms and some of the basic terminology
  • The anatomy of the heart valves and the various types of heart valve repairs and replacement
  • What the Impella device is, how it works, and how it is coded when inserted or removed
  • Why a Blalock-Taussig shunt is done, as well as how the procedure is performed
  • Correct coding of pacemaker generators along with proper ICD-10-PCS coding of lead insertion


This training plan focuses on common cardiovascular procedures in ICD-10-PCS such as cardiac catheterization, EPS ablations, AAA endografts, congenital heart defect repairs, heart valve repairs, pacemaker and Impella procedures. A description of how each procedure is done helps the coder understand anatomy, clinical and technical components and how to assign the correct codes. Photos and videos also help in understanding these procedures. OCG that impact these procedures are discussed.

About our Training Plans

HIAlearn Training Plans are developed to educate the coder in specific coding topics that have proven to be problematic. They are designed to focus on one area in detail, providing the coder with a thorough clinical knowledge of the diagnosis or procedure utilizing videos, photos, and valid websites to aid the coder in fully understanding the topic. Official coding advice and scenarios are utilized to integrate the clinical knowledge provided. Once you complete all the lessons within one course, a 10 question quiz follows. Upon completion, students will have a thorough knowledge of clinical concepts and coding guidelines of the particular topic. Participants have the option to submit their completion certificates to AHIMA, with a selection also available for AAPC CEU(s).  Learn more about us »
