    Become familiar with...

    1-Local coverage determinations (LCD/LMRP)


    2-NCCI edits



    and as a starter...Chapter 12 of the Medicare Manual


    Medicare can be very overwhelming; especially when trying to navigate through the sites. You also want to become familiar with your local carrier and their particular policies. What state are you located in? It would be good to network with a group of coders/billers within your state. Ask lots of questions when in doubt...
