Coding with Modifiers uses real-life modifier scenarios and medical records to guide correct CPTr and HCPCS modifier usage. Readers can also learn how and when to use modifiers to avoid expensive delays and denials. How and When to Use Modifiers Coding with Modifiers is required reading for anyone that uses claim modifiers on a regular basis. This fifth edition uses the revised modifier guidelines to instruct the reader how and when to use modifiers. Real-life modifier scenarios aid the implementation of modifier guidelines.
The purpose of this work is to offer those interested in a career in the Medical Billing and Coding field an insight on what they may expect before investing a great amount of time, energy, and expense into a career they may not have enough information about to make an informed decision. It is intended to be an introduction to the field in general and perhaps to answer some of the common questions asked by those considering this career field. While it can not answer every question, the book comes with unlimited email questions to the author related to the works content and topic to further assist those exploring this career path. This work is not intended or represented to be an instruction manual or teaching guide in the practice of Medical Billing or Medical Coding.
Unifying information theory and digital communication through the language of lattice codes, this book provides a detailed overview for students, researchers and industry practitioners. It covers classical work by leading researchers in the field of lattice codes and complementary work on dithered quantization and infinite constellations, and then introduces the more recent results on 'algebraic binning' for side-information problems, and linear/lattice codes for networks. It shows how high dimensional lattice codes can close the gap to the optimal information theoretic solution, including the characterisation of error exponents. The solutions presented are based on lattice codes, and are therefore close to practical implementations, with many advanced setups and techniques, such as shaping, entropy-coding, side-information and multi-terminal systems. Moreover, some of the network setups shown demonstrate how lattice codes are potentially more efficient than traditional random-coding solutions, for instance when generalising the framework to Gaussian networks.
