For courses in Introduction to Healthcare Billing and Medical Coding
A clear illustration of the key health insurance concepts readers need to learn to be workplace ready
Comprehensive Health Insurance: Billing, Coding, and Reimbursement provides readers with the knowledge and skills needed to work in a variety of administrative positions in the medical field. It covers the foundations of insurance, billing, coding, and reimbursement, offering a comprehensive view of how each element in the process affects all other steps. Students learn not only the submission of claims to the insurance carrier, but also reviewing medical records, verifying patient benefits, submitting a secondary claim, posting payments and appealing the insurance carrier's decision. Numerous case studies and patient files are included throughout to demonstrate refunds and appeals, auditing, and compliance, Medicare calculations, and professionalism. The Third Edition includes 2017 ICD-10, CPT, and HCPCS codes; information about the ramifications of the Affordable Care Act; and current information on health care changes, trends, and the future of health care.
For even more practice and review opportunities pair Comprehensive Health Insurance with the Student Workbook.
