Mastering Medical Coding: An Applied Approach
Elsevier - Health Sciences Division, 2003 - Medical - 608 pages
This practical approach to coding provides a solid foundation in basic coding principles with an emphasis on learning through realistic physician documentation. It prepares students to tackle any coding scenario, from routine to complex. Chapters begin with an emphasis on basic coding documentation and rules to ensure correct coding for ICD-9-CM, CPT-4, and HCPCS. Progressively difficult coding exercises incorporate newly learned skills as readers advance through the material. The worktext portion of the book and the companion student workbook provide progressively difficult real-world exercises that build the necessary skills of identifying the right codes from real-world medical charts. Learning objectives, numerous examples, chapter reviews, and coding reference tools throughout provide the necessary learning tools to fully master basic and advanced coding concepts.
