    current coding guidelines are are in every current coding ICD-9-CM book.
    as well as online on CMS web site

    E/M guidelines are in every current CPT book - (at least in the professional editions by AMA)

    oh - and show them the NCD guidelines also (maybe someone will finally have some covered dx's for the labs they order)

    there isn't just one set of guidelines (that would be too easy)

    Kim, Are you looking for information for E/M coding? If so, here is the link to the CMS guide: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MLNProducts/d...serv_guide.pdf
    If that isn't what you're looking for, let me know.
