The Complete Diagnosis Coding Book, second edition, has been revised to include a greater number of realistic scenarios and case studies for students to gain hands-on learning with the popular Let’s Code It! scenarios and You Code It! case studies. Keys to Coding—a new feature for this edition—make [no s] it easier for students to connect learning concepts and specific official guidelines to critical thinking. Another new feature, Bridge to ICD-10, prepares students for transition to ICD-10. Throughout the book, more anatomy and physiology descriptions, as well as more information on inclusive signs and symptoms, enhance students’ comprehension of the diagnosis coding process.
The entire text has been updated using 2011 CPT, 2011 ICD-9-CM, and 2011 HCPCS Level II codes. The new instructor’s manual features a 2011-compliant answer key to all end-of-chapter tests: Chapter Reviews (multiple-choice questions), You Code It! Practice (short scenarios), and end-of-chapter You Code It! Simulation (full physician’s notes/operative reports).
Detailed chapter-by-chapter changes can be found in the Preface of the textbook.
