    Red face CPT Assistant - I am new to coding and
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello!!

    I am new to coding and I have a question regarding CPT Assistant newsletter. I hear that it's a great reference tool but I'd like to know if it is helpful for ASC coders. Also if there is anyway for anyone to send me an email sample of what it looks like so i can make a decision on whether or not to sign up for it. Thank you!!

    I dont have a sample to send because I dont actually receive th CPT assistant via mail, mine is internet based...BUT, you can see that three are several posted throughout the forums. It is an awesome tool for all aspects of coding ASC, facility and physician. Its a must have tool in my book

    I agree with Mary, CPT Assistant is a valuable resource regardless of what kind of coding you do.

    My area of coding is Ambulatory Surgery, and I refer to this reference almost on a daily basis.

    In my case, CPT Assistant is one of the references available to me in the coding software that my facility utilizes (3M)
