coding get confusing?

Does anyone else get completely confused with coding?  There are so many guidelines by different payers.   Where do you find the guidelines for different payers?   Also--is anyone here critical access?  I am looking for online reference materials/manuals.  Thanks any help at all!  I am 1 coder to about 7 or 8 billers.   Have no support system!  Basically been following Medicare rules.  Not all payers are the same though.  Is Medicare Manual 100-4 the right manual to reference?

Most payers have a website and will post their policies within the website. However, I have found that if a procedure was medically necessary, you can often times fight and win with supporting documentation. Coding constantly entails is ever changing.
