    Medical Coding Books
    Hi. I am new to this forum and a current billing and coding student and I need help. I am overwhelmed by ALL I have to memorize, medical terminology, abbreviations, names of organizations, etc.

    My question is this: will I ever (if I ever make it) as a medical coder ever have to know which organization came up with what form, or what organization came up with which law, rule, regulation and things like that? I mean of course I know I will need to know medical terminology, but will I need to know who NCVHS, the NHII, the CLIA, the HIM, etc., etc. is?

    Hi! Yes there are some questions on the test asking you about CLIA, HIPAA etc.
    Good luck!
