  • Dual coding addresses the transition to ICD-10 by providing coding answers for both ICD-9 and ICD-10.
  • UNIQUE! Evaluation and Management (E/M) Audit Forms, developed to determine the correct E/M codes, simplify the coding process and help to ensure accuracy.
  • Auditing cases prepare you to assign correct codes to complicated records, as well as audit records for accuracy. 
  • From the Trenches boxes highlight the experiences of real-life medical coders and provide practical tips, advice, and encouragement.
  • UNIQUE! Netter anatomy plates in each chapter help you understand anatomy and how it affects coding.
  • More than 160 full-color illustrations depict and clarify advanced concepts.
