Can I bring printed Errata and Current Year ICD-10 Guidelines in to my AAPC Exam

Question: My 2018 ICD-10 manual has last year’s guidelines (2017).  Can I print the 2018 guidelines and bring them in with me to the exam?

Answer: Yes you can.  We confirmed by email from the exams department at the AAPC and Teresa Zarco stated:

“Yes, they [examinees] are allowed to bring a printout of the current years guidelines.”

“if the proctors have any questions regarding the guidelines the day of the exam. they are more they welcome to contact Wendy Willes, her number is on the Proctor Confirmation.”

You are also allowed to bring in any Errata from official sources like CPT, ICD, and HCPCS.  At times certain publishers have errata – like in a previous years version of ICD a publisher was missing the ambulance modifiers.  Examinees were allowed to bring in the official errata from the publisher with those missing pages.
