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 2012 Edition, it provides more than 1,000 questions and terminology exercises (with odd numbered answers provided) 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.

    • Over 90 original source documents provide real-world experience to prepare you for employers' expectations.
    • Dual coding in chapters 13-31 (where both ICD-10 and ICD-9 answers are provided for every question with an ICD answer) ensures you can code using the systems of both today and tomorrow.
    • More than 1,000 questions and terminology exercises familiarize you with documents you will encounter in practice.
    • Consistent question format with odd numbered answers provided mirrors the format of the main text to improve your coding skills and promote critical thinking.
    • Original reports, cleared of all confidential information, simulate real-world experience in areas such as:
      • Arthroscopy
      • Fracture repair with skeletal fixation
      • Muscle repair
