Jump-start your coding accuracy and output
Our proven set of color-coded charts can give a big boost to the accuracy of your cardiology, cardiac cath and peripheral coding, while saving you time. How? By clarifying physician intent and providing an at-a-glance visual pathway to the correct codes and charges.
Thanks to high-quality anatomical images and color coding, you'll quickly identify the correct cardiology, cardiac cath and peripheral CPT® codes for procedures involving the heart, coronary arteries, upper extremity, lower extremity and other body systems. If your services include angiography, angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy or embolization, you'll find our 2018 Peripheral & Cardiology Coding Charts especially helpful in navigating through the often-confusing CPT code choices.
Are you new to cardiology, cardiac cath and peripheral coding? Need a better understanding of concepts such as component coding or hybrid/bundled coding? Want to augment your CIRCC exam preparation? Our 2018 Peripheral & Cardiology Coding Charts make great educational and training tools. They're also the ideal complement to our 2018 Peripheral & Cardiology Coder book.

The final rules for the 2018 Medicare outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) and the Medicare physician fee schedule (MPFS) dictate the publishing dates for our books. In previous years, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have issued these final rules in early November of the previous year (November 2017), and the updating process for our books begins.
