Coding is a skill requiring in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, new technology, coding guidelines, and documentation issues. Novice and experienced coders will have questions—so when the code book and guidelines do not provide the answers, the Ingenix 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.
