A Guide to Health Insurance Billing
A Guide to Health Insurance Billing is an entry-level text designed to guide students through the health insurance billing process. It covers all aspects of the billing process, from key terms to procedures to state and federal regulations. Separate chapters examine the guidelines for filing insurance claims with various commercial and Workers' Compensation health insurance programs, as well as the guidelines and common completion procedures for the HCFA-1500, a universal health insurance form. Both ICD-9-CM and CPT coding systems are explained and are accompanied by review exercises that give students several opportunities to code from actual patient information. Managed care and its impact on health insurance billing and the Electronic Data Interchange, a frequently used method for submitting claims, are covered in specialty chapters. The conversational tone and straightforward manner of A Guide to Health Insurance Billing keeps material that is largely considered "dry" engaging and interesting to the student.
