"I am a fan of this book and I do think the key terms are helpful in the learning process. From the time I added this book to our curriculum until now this book has grown and has only gotten better over time. It's a great book and has well written content. We are enjoying MindTap, and I do feel it is benefiting the students with hands-on examples...very pleased that the MindTtap walks students through the filling out of the insurance claims. I think the SimClaims are very helpful and provide hands-on experience for the students."
The EncoderPRO Software is a major plus. The book provides a strong and detailed look at the main insurance companies in the USA - Medicare, Medicaid, and BC/BS. The product has MindTap which allows students many more options. I like the fact that there is an electronic grade book. There are also SimClaim assignments that students can accomplish through the web. The fact that it is all web-based is a MAJOR PLUS! I like MindTap. I think it is a great resource both for students and teachers. Great resources for students. Easily accessible. Gradebook is a major plus for professors."
