Overview

Step-by-Step Medical Coding takes a practical approach to training students for a career in medical coding. It begins with an introduction to Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), followed by in-depth explanations of the sections found in the CPT manual. Several chapters, organized to follow the CPT codes by body system, introduce various procedures and demonstrate how to code each one. Practice exercises following each step of information and at the end of each unit reinforce important concepts and allow users to check their comprehension. Unit 2 covers the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD 9-CM), and Unit 3 offers information about third party reimbursement. An appendix provides the official ICD-9-CM guidelines for coding and reporting.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

LouAnn Schraffenberger
This textbook is for teaching ICD-9-CM and CPT4 coding systems, used in report diagnoses and procedures for patients treated in a wide variety of healthcare settings. The purpose is to teach ICD-9-CM and CPT4 clinical coding and to prepare individuals for careers in clinical coding. The audience includes students in coding certificate programs, medical assisting programs, health information administration and technology programs, and any individual working independently to learn coding. The major emphasis of this book is on the CPT4 procedure coding system, to which five chapters are devoted. Two chapters are devoted to ICD-9-CM coding, and one chapter addresses third party reimbursement issues. Each chapter contains numerous exercises. This is a good basic coding textbook, but it is more useful as a tool to teach CPT4 procedure coding, as only two chapters are devoted to ICD-9-CM diagnosis coding. An excellent feature is the many exercises included in each chapter. The book teaches some basic medical science along with the coding. Serious coding students will need more information and exercises for ICD-9-CM coding but the CPT coding chapters will be very useful in preparing students for coding careers.
