Being a physician is hard and involves important work that affects many people’s lives. As a physician, you deserve to be appropriately compensated for many hours of effort you put in and the positive impact you have. In order to get maximally compensated, a solid understanding of medical coding and billing is necessary.

This book covers the ins and outs of medical decision-making, obtaining medical history, conducting physical exams, telemedicine, co-pays and deductibles, electronic medical records, modifiers, documentation, and more. Every physician should have Medical Coding Decoded in their toolkit in order to help them do their job to the best of their ability and be rewarded accordingly.
