New Second Edition!

The Field Guide to Physician Coding Second Edition delivers a payload of precise information on coding rules and relevant billing guidelines. Written by nationally-renowned physician coding expert Betsy Nicoletti, her explanations shed light on why the rules were created and how certain topics are linked to other information about which you must be aware. Nicoletti also steers you to critical source documents for today's coding rules so you don't have to spend hours hunting for key facts in long official documents. Sleep well, knowing that your practice is compliant with government rules, and you're collecting all of the money you are entitled to collect.
