current coding guidelines are are in every current coding ICD-9-CM book.
as well as online on CMS web site
http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/datawh/ftpserv/ftpICD9/icdguide08.pdf

E/M guidelines are in every current CPT book - (at least in the professional editions by AMA)

oh - and show them the NCD guidelines also (maybe someone will finally have some covered dx's for the labs they order) ;)

there isn't just one set of guidelines (that would be too easy)
