  • Step-by-step guidance for musculoskeletal procedure code selection
  • Definition of anatomic terms, including tips for how they are used in documentation, coding and billing

  • Guidance on ICD-10-CM code selection for various musculoskeletal conditions
  • References to authoritative resources to handle the frequent clinician question: “Where does it say I have to do that?”
