    Smile Guidelines and practice management

    CPC Lee

    I really don't know what they mean by that, I can only assume that maybe you narrowed your choices to the correct codes only the order of the coding wasn't correct. There are chapter specific coding guidlines in the CPT book. I would suggest reading the entire guidelines section in the front of the ICD-9 CM book. Have you ever worked in a medical practice? What do you do now? I think practice management from what I remember is dealing with ins payments and medicare specific issues etc. Did you know there are G codes that medicare uses in lieu of some of the E&M codes or other 99 codes in our cpt manual? It might be stuff like that.....read the HCPCS and guidelines and see where you get. I hope this was helpful....good luck to you.
