The fourth edition of Medical Insurance: An Integrated Claims Process Approach is designed for medical insurance courses. The textbook provides medical assisting, medical insurance, and health information technology students with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully perform insurance and billing related duties.
The chapters’ organization follows the medical billing process to enhance learning, moving from a comprehensive introductory chapter through processing RA/EOBs and handling patient collections. Every chapter has extensive illustrations, forms, and exercises to develop the required competencies as well as exercises to improve underlying essential math and communications skills. This text also provides a fundamental understanding of diagnostic and procedural coding needed to submit claims in compliance with payers’ requirements. New for this edition is a text-specific workbook which provides both review and applications of each textbook chapter.
