Basic Current Procedural Terminology and HCPCS Coding Exercises reinforces beginning and intermediate coding students’ coding knowledge with skill-building drills and real-world case studies. The reader can expect exercises that test knowledge of medical terminology, anatomy, and clinical concepts through instruction designed to bridge the gap between clinical documentation and coding. An assortment of in-depth case studies includes questions that encourage the student to extract the information needed to determine the index terms that will lead them to the correct code assignment. The first chapter has been expanded to include student practice for identifying key documentation elements to support coding decisions.
