We’re really getting down to the wire, folks. The ICD-10 transition is just over a month away(!). In fact, we have a blog post lined up for you next week that will share some last minute preparation tips. But in the meantime, we wanted to squeeze in one last zany ICD-10 code post.
If this is your first time reading our zany codes series, then you’ve missed our Halloween, Thanksgiving, winter, more winter, St. Patrick’s Day and Fourth of July posts, to name a few. Our purpose with these fun posts is to help you gradually become familiar with the new, hyper-specific code set that is ICD-10 – and find a comical way to do so, of course.
For our last post of the series, we took a different approach – no holiday or seasonal theme. Instead, we bring you ICD-10 cartoons! That’s right. We took some of the zaniest ICD-10 codes and worked with our amazing video team to create animated video shorts. Check them out!
X52 – Prolonged Stay in Weightless Environment
W59.22xS – Struck By Turtle
W22.02xD – Walked Into Lamppost Subsequent Encounter
Y93.D1 – Activity, Knitting and Crocheting
V96.03XA – Balloon Collision Injuring Occupant

These are great, please keep them coming! I'm a coding student, and I am SO sharing these with our class! Talk about 99 problems, but Z63.0 ain't one!

These are great! I love the turtle! And just how many times has this happened where it was deemed necessary to create it's own code???
