CPT coding and modifiers are also discussed, as well as more code-specific information, concentrating on specialty coding and the levels of coding. Additional case studies, practice exercises, tips, examples, tables, charts, and photos have been added in order to improve your performance and ensure that you are well prepared for a medical coding position in a variety of settings.
