## How will developing ICD-10-CM coding skills help me become a better medical administrative professional?

 This assignment helps you apply your knowledge from this week’s readings.  Success Tip: View the “ICD-10-CM Tabbing Activity” and “What, Why and How of Coding” videos in Presentation Materials and tab your code book before beginning this assignment. The ICD-10-CM codes show medical necessity for procedures, supplies or services that are provided to the patient in the medical setting.  These codes are used to study healthcare costs, predict health care trends and even plan for future health care needs.  Developing accurate ICD-10 coding skills could help you become a better medical biller or medical administrative assistant.
