Winner of the Text and Academic Authors Association's 2003 Textbook Excellence Award!

Distilled from the comprehensive textbook, Fordney's Insurance Handbook for the Medical Office, this essentials text features a streamlined approach to key topics - including documentation in a medical office, Example boxes, colorful illustrations, and an appendix that uses color-coded payer icons to teach readers how to complete the HCFA-1500 form. Self-study workbook sections and practice exercises incorporated throughout the book make it easy to learn diagnostic coding, procedural coding, office and insurance collection strategies, Medicare considerations, and more. A companion CD-ROM and website offer additional practice and interactive learning opportunities!

  • Combined text and workbook format keeps the content self-contained and easy to manage.
  • Full-color format allows readers to identify colors and icons with individual payers, helping them to easily follow and learn specific payer rules and procedures.
  • An appendix of block-by-block coverage, with full-color examples of the HCFA-1500 insurance claim form, facilitates understanding and effective learning.
  • Photographs, quotes, and short biographies of real insurance billing specialists appear in each chapter, offering real-world perspectives on insurance billing.
  • A separate chapter on documentation in the medical office is devoted to this critical topic.
  • Exercise sections within the text encourage readers to stop and recall or apply what they've learned to help master key concepts.
