Consolidate the coding process with the Coding Companion, your one-stop coding resource developed exclusively for cardiology, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery specialties. This comprehensive and easy-to-use guide is updated for 2023 and organized by specialty-specific CPT® codes. Each CPT® code includes its official description and lay description, coding tip, Medicare edits and relative value units and is cross-coded to common ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes to complete the coding process. Getting to the code information you need has never been so easy.
