Editorial Reviews


"I definitely would use this text in an introductory billing course. It gives a good overview of the tools needed to develop insurance claims…I have always admired Moisio's practice exercises, and have often supplemented them in my classroom"

"I am very glad to see that the author has included UB-04 claim preparation. A lot of my students don't want to work in a doctor's office and I usually have to teach outside of the text to cover the hospital billing information… I am glad to see that the author added a separate chapter on ICD-10. I really think that the implementation of ICD-10 is rapidly approaching and its good that we are preparing our students for the implementation…I would definitely recommend this text…for adoption consideration. This text is extremely thorough and is on the cutting edge of the constant changes in the healthcare billing arena." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I knew nothing about health insurance. This book is definitely worth the money. What makes it stand out is there are examples they give to make it more clear, as well as a CD and test questions.

The book presents medical billing employment opportunities, discusses biller's qualifications, introduces the ICD-9 and CPT concepts, teaches how to develop a claim, guides the completion of HCFA forms, discusses electronic data interchange, and offers separate chapters on managed care, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, and workers compensation. Each chapter includes key terms and learning objectives as well as reinforcement exercises and examples designed to help learning the basics of insurance billing.

An excellent entry-level text for those learning about the insurance billing process.
