Coding is a skill requiring in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, new technology, coding guidelines, and documentation issues. Both novice and experienced coders will have questions - so when the code book and guidelines do not provide the answers, the Coders' Desk Reference for ICD-9-CM Procedures will. With this comprehensive resource on all the ICD-9-CM procedure codes, you can improve coding confidence by gaining a better understanding of the technical terminology and intricacies of procedures, along with essential coding tips, before selecting a code.
