EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second of a three part series on tips for memorizing ICD-10 codes. Read Part 1 and Part 3

This article continues the series that aims to provide assistance in “memorizing” ICD-10-CM – maybe not to the exact code, but the process will get you close. Shall we continue?

Each ICD-10-CM code begins with a letter. Each letter can be associated with a specific ICD-10-CM chapter. Some chapters include more than one letter and some chapters share beginning letters.
