ICD Coding, (BOT 2653), a three semester credit hour course, is an introduction to the field of diagnostic and inpatient procedural coding using ICD coding resources.

Enrollment in this class is recommended for persons who currently work in a medical setting or persons with past anatomy and physiology or medical terminology coursework who desire to learn the fundamentals of diagnostic coding as it relates to medical insurance reimbursement.
