FAQ: Which Code Sets Are on TCI SuperCoder Code Constructor?

 

 

Code Constructor, which is included in TCI SuperCoder online coding packages, allows you to find a CPT®, HCPCS Level II, or ICD-10-CM code one character at a time.

 

Start by selecting Code Constructor in the left menu of your Coding Tools or Coder page. When the Code Constructor page opens, choose the code set you want to use. You’ll then see a list of code ranges with descriptions to choose from. Continue narrowing down your code choice by clicking smaller range options until you’ve found your complete, reportable code.

 

For instance, you may follow this path:

 

  • Click ICD-10-CM
  • Click (I00-I99) Diseases of the Circulatory System
    • Code Constructor shows the first character of your code is I
  • Click (I10-I16) Hypertensive Diseases
    • Code Constructor shows the first two characters of your code are I1
  • Click (I10) Essential (Primary) Hypertension
    • Code Constructor shows your final code is I10

 

 

 

FAQ: Some TCI SuperCoder Tools Refer to MCR and MCD. What Do They Stand For?

 

 

TCI SuperCoder tools may use MCD to refer to Medicaid and MCR to refer to Medicare. For instance, the CCI Edits Checkers are available for both Medicare and Medicaid Correct Coding Initiative (CCI) edits. The use of MCD or MCR identifies which payer the edits apply to. Similarly, the tools for Medically Unlikely Edits (MUEs) offer data from both Medicare and Medicaid, so the abbreviations identify the source of the data.
