Edited by Edward A. Liechty, MD, Cindy Hughes, CPC, CFPC and Becky Dolan, MPH, CPC, CPEDC

Code it right the first time - and minimize claim denials and payment delays with today's most trusted pediatric coding and documentation guide. For beginners and advanced coders alike, this is the first place to look for pediatric-specific coding solutions! A widely used AAP exclusive, Coding for Pediatrics complements standard coding manuals with proven pediatric-specific documentation and billing solutions.

This year's completely updated 22nd edition features updates from both CPT and ICD-10-CM most relevant to pediatrics to provide specific examples and guidance on how to implement the new codes. Some new and revised services under CPT include parent/caregiver health risk assessment and moderate sedation. The book's many clinical vignettes, as well as the many coding pearls included throughout, provide added guidance needed to ensure accuracy and maximize payment.

In addition to revised CPT codes, new and updated features in this edition include

New chapter providing information on coding for services by allied health professionals in the physician practice

New chapter focused on coding for management of chronic and complex medical conditions

More examples of coding for preventive services recommended by Bright Futures

Coding quiz (approved for American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) for 4 continuing education units)
