Make your coding easier and more accurate with the Procedure Desk Reference

This procedural coding book contains AMA's CPT® codes paired with Medicare fee schedule rules and payment guidelines. It is designed for a coder's daily work—not the classroom or AAPC's credentialing exams. Physician practices, outpatient hospitals, and ASCs benefit from this single, easy-to-navigate resource that arranges codes in a design known to speed coding, billing, and reimbursement. You'll also find a comprehensive listing of annual code additions/changes/deletions/reinstatements in the appendix, new code icons and notes, plus reimbursement information, mid-year changes, and whole lot more.
