Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This is a text-workbook for hospital and facility medical/surgical coding and billing for healthcare services.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information needed to comprehend the requirements of medical billing and coding for a hospital or facility for the purposes of reimbursement. According to the author, the book is designed so that students or classroom instructors can use only those portions necessary for their specific needs or curriculum.
Audience: The audience includes students in various fields that demand knowledge and skills in coding and billing, such as health information technology, medical assisting, medical coding and billing, or insurance/patient accounting. The author is program director and instructor in a coding and health information program at Central Florida College.
Features: Section I provides an overview of the hospital coding and billing processes, which includes a review of the coding and billing rules and is not intended to teach coding. Section II includes the details of the inpatient facility processes of coding and billing. Section III covers the details of the outpatient facility processes for coding and billing. The author notes that the standard facility billing form was being changed during the writing of this book so it contains information that is now out of date. The author does direct the reader to a Web site for new information.
Assessment: This is a very well organized text-workbook for learning about coding and billing from the facility perspective. There are not many books on the market that provide this type of instruction. More frequently, books describe physician professional fee coding and billing. This book includes numerous exercises that are good to reinforce the concepts presented. I noticed the author requested the coding of ICD-9-CM procedure codes for outpatient claims, but, as of the past couple of years, ICD-9-CM procedure codes were no longer required for outpatient claims. Perhaps this was included strictly for coding practice purposes. This is a good book for students to review for the reimbursement and billing portions of coding certification exams. It is reasonably priced and comprehensive.
From the Publisher
"Billing and coding students who are not exposed to the billing and coding claim forms (UB04 and CMS 1500) during training are disadvantaged. I strongly believe marketable billers and coders should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the billing and coding process from scheduling the appointment (and or admission) through and including processing the claim, submitting necessary appeals, and collection from the insurance carrier and patient. The SimClaim student practice software helps reiterate the importance of accurate data entry on the claim form."JoAnn R. Hooper, BSHSM, MBA, Adjunct Faculty, Medical Insurance Specialist Program, Coding Program Baker College of Auburn Hills , Auburn Hills Michigan

"I love the breakdown of the UB-04 for completion and the lists of revenue, value, occurrence codes. I also love the fact that DRG and OPPS are covered. I think that this manuscript goes above and beyond the introduction of coding and billing."Rhoda Cooper CPC, RMC, NCICS, Director of Health Information Management, Assistant Professor Piedmont Virginia Community College, Charlottesville, Virginia

    Inaccurate and Terrible

    We used this worktext in a class I took and I don't think anyone proofread this book. There were inaccuracies every other page!! I would not recommend this book to anyone! It made it so hard to learn because I could not remember what information was correct and which wasn't!! I would not give this one star but I wanted people to see that this book was rated.
