Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

This supplemental text is concise and focused on practice. Exactly what students need to learn to code. They are presented logically, which flows with both the CPT and ICD-9 books. The comparisons between ICD-9 and ICD-10 will satisfy the preparation needed to prepare students and current medical billers for the conversion. The content is complete and will greatly encourage success on the CPC."

— Mary Elizabeth W. Browder, M.Ed., Associate Professor, University of Cincinnati – Blue Ash

"Excellent as a supplemental text to give students a chance to practice coding skills and can be used to complete the required CAAHEP competencies."
