2022 CPT® Coding Essentials for Cardiology

Optimized for medical necessity and reimbursement understanding, this all-in-one resource focuses on the most important CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes and their associated relative value units (RVUs) for cardiology and vascular surgery, plus medicine and ancillary services codes chosen by experts who have taken into consideration utilization, denial risk and complexity.

CPT® Coding Essentials optimizes both CPT® and ICD-10 code selection with helpful CPT®-to-ICD crosswalks and detailed explanations of anatomy, physiology, and documentation. Other than the AMA CPT® Professional Edition codebook, this is the only book in the market with verbatim CPT® Editorial Panel–approved guidelines and parenthetical information specific to cardiology and vascular surgery.

This is the ideal daily companion featuring useful, definitive specialty-specific coding information beyond what is normally provided in a procedural/services codebook.

Cardiology and vascular surgery coding and billing knowledge available in a single volume, conveniently superseding the need for multiple resources or years of experience.
