Description Biography
 

Optimized for medical necessity and reimbursement understanding, this all-in-one resource focuses on the most important CPT® and HCPCS codes for urology and nephrology, plus medicine and ancillary services chosen by experts who have taken into consideration utilization, denial risk and complexity.

CPT® Coding Essentials optimizes both CPT and ICD-10 code selection with helpful CPT-to-ICD-10-CM crosswalks and detailed explanations of anatomy, physiology and documentation. Other than the AMA CPT® Professional Edition codebook, this is the only book in the market with verbatim CPT-panel–approved guidelines and parenthetical information specific to urology and nephrology.

This is the ideal daily companion featuring useful, definitive specialty-specific coding information beyond what is provided in a full procedural codebook.

Urology and nephrology coding and billing knowledge available in a single volume, conveniently superseding the need for multiple resources or years of experience.
