Understanding Medical Coding contains instruction for both inpatient and outpatient coding, and links a connection to the billing/reimbursement/collections process. The book takes the user through all steps necessary to code a claim correctly, link the correct CPT and ICD-9-CM codes for reimbursement for various insurance carriers and government entities, explains adjustments and how and when to bill patients, and what to do if there is a denial or rejection. The book provides an overview of both CPT and ICD-9-CM coding, and also provides more code-specific information, concentrating on specialty coding and the levels of coding. Understanding the coding rationales increases knowledge and skill in one or more area, enhancing skills and performance for various facilities locations and departments.
