An exercise companion to the ICD-9-CM Coding Handbook,2008, and an ancillary text for study or reference.Contains hundreds of exercises based on real health recordsw in a case summary style that considers the patient’s condition as well as all relevant information: medical history, reason for admission or encounter, laboratory results, procedures performed, and the diagnoses listed. Readers apply pertinent coding principles and official coding guidelines in making code assignments and designating the principal diagnosis and procedure for each episode of care in clean, technically correct language. Drills test coding skills in a variety of realistic health care settings. The codes and comments in an answer key supplement reflect the latest official coding guidelines and show a list of correctly assigned and appropriately sequenced codes. The list of codes for each exercise is followed by a comments section, which explains how the codes were assigned and why some codes were not assigned and direct readers to pertinent entries in the three volumes of ICD-9-CM.
