This course focuses on the building blocks of the language of medical coding; diagnosis codes (ICD-10-CM: International Classification of Diseases) procedure codes (CPT-4: Current Procedural Terminology), and the national HCPCS: (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding Systems). Modifiers, which are specific numbers that are appended to the procedure codes, are reviewed as well. Medical decision making, which refers to the complexity of establishing a diagnosis and procedure(s) for a patient will be taught. Though a medical biller does not usually do any coding, the student needs to know the process of how the medical provider determines the codes for submitting to the insurance company and well as documenting these codes in the patients' medical record. Medical terminology relevant to these coding systems that are used for medical billing is covered.
