Safian, Shelley C.



444 pages




This textbook for insurance coding and billing specialists outlines the different types of insurance and documentation encountered at a typical health care facility, and walks through the process of translating diagnoses and procedures into ICD-9-CM, CPT, ICD-10- CM, and ICD-10-PCS codes. It also shows how to enter patients' data into a patient accounting software program to create the health insurance claim form and send it to the third-party payer.
