This web site provides high quality medical coding tools at a low cost for medical coders, physicians, nurses, researchers, and other health care professionals. Our three design principles are simplicity, simplicity and simplicity. Try it and you will see the difference! You can create a 30 day free trial account here within a minute.
We have built the first medical code search engine powered by Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology. You can either enter key words or codes to search for the code you need. NLP powered search enables you to get to the code in less than a second. You can get the medical code you want at least three times faster compared to when you use paper coding books.
It is time to switch to iMedical.com coding tool if you are using coding books in paper. Coding books are sooo twenty-first century. You don't need to buy a computer, or even install any software. You just need to create a free online account and try. If you don't like it, you don't pay a penny. It is completely risk free for you.
Here are just a few features for coding tools on the web site:
You can search ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, CPT, HCPCS II, DRG by keywords and codes; You can also search indexes of ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS.
For complex coding topic such as injury, burn or diabetes etc, our online coding tools will guide your through the coding process and help you to narrow down the code step by step. As a result, you are guaranteed to have the most accurate billable code with all required specifics. For example, there are more than 30,000 injury codes. The online coding tool will ask you to choose major body area, specific body part, and what type of injury, and finally the tool will remind you of choosing whether the visit is initial encounter, subsequent encounter or sequela. You can copy the final code and description to the EHR (Electronic Health Record) system. This not only give you the most accurate billable code to guarantee you the reimbursement, but also present you the most compliant documentation.
Our online coding tool will guide you through building any ICD-10-CM code by top-down fashion. By selecting ICD-10-CM chapter, section and category code from a drop down menu, and then by specifying more details for the category code, you can build any ICD-10-CM code accurately without missing any specific details necessary.
Similarly, our online coding tool will guide your through building any ICD-10-PCS code by selecting ICD-10-PCS section, body system, operation, body part, approach, device and qualifier from a drop down list. This makes the navigation of ICD-10-PCS code table really easy and you can find your ICD-10-PCS code in no time.
To get ICD-10-PCS code, you need the least number of clicks since the tool will do as much as possible on your behalf.
For example, with only two clicks, you can find that the ICD-10-PCS code for "Delivery of New Born Baby" is 10E0XZZ. Here is how. On page "BitFind ICD-10-PCS", choose "1 Obstretrics" as the Section (1st click), and the coding tool will automatically select "0 Pregnancy" as Body System. then select "E Delivery" as the Operation (2nd Click), and the coding tool will automatically complete the rest; i.e., the coding tool will automatically select "0 Products of Conception" as the Body Part, "X External" as the Approach, "Z No Device" as the Device, and "Z No Qualifier" as the Qualifier.
Our web coding tools are smart enough to do as much as possible for you, and save a lot of your time.
In search results, every ICD-10-CM code will be marked as billable or not billable.
You can find out easily if any ICD-10-CM code need the 7th character within a second.
Coding compliance is an important goal for our web coding tools. A significant portion of claim denial is due to medical coding error. Recent studies show that there will be about a 10-15% drop in reimbursement for physicians or hospitals after switching to ICD-10. By using our medical coding tools on this website, You can avoid this drop, as useful our tool employs these features:
In our web coding tools, every code resulting from a search has a flag to show whether it can be used for billing or not.
For example, if you search for "chest pain", you can see that in the search result, codes appended with can be used for billing. Therefore R07.1, R07.89 and R07.9 are all billable, but R07 and R07.8 are not.
Some ICD-10-CM codes need to specify the 7th character. For example, S60.219 corresponds to 'Contusion of unspecified wrist'. If you use S60.219 in your claim, your claim will be denied, since S60.129 is not billable code. Instead, you must use either S60.219A (initial encounter), S60.219D (subsequent encounter), or S60.219S (sequela).
As a matter of fact, of the total 6,9823 billable ICD-10-CM codes, 4,8709 codes require the 7th character.
So around 70% of all ICD-10-CM codes require the 7th character. MedicalCodeCenter.com predicts the majority of
claim denial will be due to ICD-10-CM code without proper 7th character specified.
Our web coding tool is especially designed to tackle this complexity related to the 7th character. In search result, all codes which require the 7th character are marked with the required 7th character so that you would never use any code missing 7th character. As a result, you can eliminate claim denial due to missing 7th character.
For example, if you search "wrist contusion", you can see that in the search result, code S60.211, S60.212, S60.219 all cannot be used for billing, instead all three codes need to specify 'A', 'D', or 'S' as the 7th character so that they can be used for billing.
You can find out whether certain code needs 7th character within a second simply by typing the ICD-10-CM code in the search box. For example, if you want to check whether code M84.361 (Stress fracture, right tibia) needs 7th character, You can just type in M84.361 in 'Search ICD-10-CM' page, you can immediately see code M84.361 needs 7th character 'A'(initial encounter), 'D'(subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing), 'G'(subsequent encounter with delayed healing), 'K'(subsequent encounter with nonunion), 'P'(subsequent encounter with malunion), and 'S'(sequela).
Some ICD-10-CM codes are gender or age sensitive, and these codes are marked to avoid claim denial due to sex or age conflicts. Some codes are not sufficient for hospital admission, these codes are also marked.
Some ICD-10-CM codes cannot be used as primary diagnosis code, and these codes are marked also.
The website is designed for cross training between inpatient and outpatient coders. Your new coding skills will expand new horizons for your career.
If you are an outpatient coder, you could learn ICD-10-PCS and DRG to become an inpatient coder by using this website for a few months. You could play with "BitFind ICD-10-PCS" to understand how to build an ICD-10-PCS code. You could also see how DRG code is derived from ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes.
On the other hand, if you work in an inpatient setting, you could quickly learn how to code physicians service by CPT and HCPCS code from this website. You can create a free account within a minute.

Oct 1, 2017 has just passed, it is time for 2018 edition of ICD-10. ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are updated to the 2018 edition.
CPT and HCPCS code sets are both updated to 2017 version, RVUs and MUEs for both code sets are also updated to 2017 version.
When you search for diabetes, burn, injury on ICD-10-CM search page, you often get too many codes to choose from. The Code Assistant will guide you to the most specific code by offering a few multiple choices. The Code Assistant will confirm the final code is billable once you reach it.
We used to have four different web pages to convert ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM, ICD-9-PCS to ICD-10-PCS, ICD-10-CM to ICD-9-CM, and ICD-10-PCS to ICD-9-PCS. Our software is now smart enough to know what coding system your input code is most cases except the following two scenarios.
There are 39 codes such as E030 and E8020 etc and they can be both ICD-9-CM code and ICD-10-CM code. If you input one of these 39 codes, the web page will give you two radio buttons so that you can choose to convert from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM or from ICD-10-CM to ICD-9-CM.
If you omit the dot for ICD-9-CM and ICD-9-PCS, there are 1593 overlapping codes. For example, 0010 can be both ICD-9-CM and ICD-9-PCS code. There are two ways to resolve this ambiguity. The first way is an easy way, just enter 0010, the conversion tool knows the code can be both ICD-9-CM and ICD-9-PCS and it will prompt you to choose from the two cases by displaying two radio buttons. The second way is to add a dot to the code. If you add a dot after the 3rd digit, and enter 001.0, the ICD conversion tool will convert ICD-9-CM code 001.0 (Cholera due to vibrio cholerae) to ICD-10-CM; on the other hand, if you add a dot after the 2nd digit, enter 00.10, the ICD conversion tool will convert ICD-9-PCS 00.10 (Implantation of chemotherapeutic agent) to ICD-10-PCS.
