Hello! This is completely new to me. I am currently a student at UTB/TSC in Brownsville, Tx. I am studying Medical Coding and Billing. This is my first semester. The instructor advised us to subscribe to this e-newsletter. She said this will help us alot.If you have any tips or anything that can help me please let me know, I could really use all the help I can get.

Learns where to find things in your ICD-9 and CPT books, along with other coding and billing books.  If you cannot go quickly to the source, then you will waste your time trying to find answers.

Learn how to use the online resources.  There are too many to name here.  Your class should give you some leads on these.

The future is going to be more electronic, so auditing will be the big wave of the futre, too.  EMRs and EHRs will be wrong for the billing process, so auditing the information will be necessary.  Also, auditing charts and procedures in a practice will be part of the new healthcare initiatives.
