Medical Coding Fundamentals provides a fresh approach to medical coding that reflects the way real medical coders succeed in their jobs. An introductory chapter refreshes students on the basics of A&P and medical terminology. Authentic examples clearly illustrate key areas, from the basics of CPT, ICD and HCPCS through complex topics such as modifiers and E/M. In order to train students to become proficient, accurate coders who are well-prepared to take the steps towards coding certification, exercises throughout each chapter and the entire final chapter provide plenty of coding practice, as well as critical thinking to prepare the next generation of coders. Don’t worry about ICD-10, either. Medical Coding Fundamentals tackles the transition head on, providing you with just the right blend of coverage.
