Overview

Formally know as Exercises in Medical Billing and Coding, The Practice of Medical Billing and Coding, 2e, contains instructional training in the MediSoft Patient Accounting computer program, as well as a simulated work program to help you experience the real life situations that a medical biller experiences. This book is created for use as either a stand-alone text for those wishing to learn MediSoft, or in conjunction with ICDC Publishing's Guide to Medical Billing and Coding. Some of the exercises in the simulated work portion of the book are based upon concepts learned in the Guide to Medical Billing and Coding (i.e., procedure and diagnosis coding, privacy issues, etc.). While this book is complete in teaching the MediSoft patient accounting program, it should not be considered a complete text for learning medical billing. It is important that trainees not only learn to enter data into a computer billing program, but also to understand the concepts behind what they are entering. It is suggested that a trainee take a complete medical billing course prior to learning computerized billing with this book. The simulated work portion of this text incorporates concepts that are not taught by simple data entry, for example CPTâ and ICD-9 coding, privacy guidelines, patient record keeping, reception area duties, correspondence, and manual completion of claims. This text is designed to enable the student to work through the material at their own pace. In the simulated work portion, the outside margin of this text has been enlarged to allow room for taking notes and jotting down procedure and diagnosis codes.
