9781416001294: Step-By-Step Medical Coding 2005 Edition, 1e

Step-by-Step Medical Coding takes a practical approach to training students for a career in medical coding. It begins with an introduction to Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), followed by in-depth explanations of the sections found in the CPT manual. Several chapters, organized to follow the CPT codes by body system, introduce various procedures and demonstrate how to code each one. Practice exercises following each step of information and at the end of each unit reinforce important concepts and allow users to check their comprehension. Unit 2 covers the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD 9-CM), and Unit 3 offers information about third party reimbursement. Appendices provide the official ICD-9-CM guidelines for coding and reporting, answers to the in-text exercises, and the documentation guidelines for E/M services.

  • In-text exercises throughout each chapter immediately reinforce the coding rules and concepts, emphasizing the step-by-step organization of the book
  • Medical procedures or conditions are illustrated and discussed in the text help readers understand the services being coded.
  • Format for answers includes four response variations: one answer blank for coding questions that require a one-code answer; multiple answer blanks for coding questions that require a multiple-code answer; identifiers next to the blank(s) guide readers through the most difficult coding scenarios; and answer blanks with a preceding symbol prompt the reader to decide the number of codes necessary to correctly answer the question.
