Strengthen your ability to code accurately and obtain the correct reimbursement for medical services with this helpful workbook. Specifically designed to parallel the content of Carol J. Buck's Step-By-Step Medical Coding, 2013 Edition, it provides more than 1,500 questions and terminology exercises that cover both the ICD-9 and ICD-10 diagnosis coding systems, and includes over 90 original source documents to familiarize you with the materials you'll encounter in practice.

Key Features

  • Dual coding in chapters 13-31 (where both ICD-10 and ICD-9 answers are provided for every question requiring an ICD answer) ensures you can code using the sets of both today and tomorrow.
  • Complete coverage of the new ICD-10 code set prepares you for the eventual transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10.
  • Three types of activities help you master key concepts and apply your knowledge:
    • Theory: fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice, and true/false questions
    • Practical: line coding exercises
    • Reports: practice coding with actual medical record documentation

  • Consistent question format with odd numbered answers provided mirrors the format of the main text to improve your coding skills and promote critical thinking.
  • Over 90 original source documents, cleared of all confidential information, provide real-world experience with the reports you will encounter on the job.
