AAPC Coder Complete
AAPC Coder Complete provides all the coding and reimbursement tools needed for inpatient coders, outpatient coders and CDI experts. Quickly view the OPPS fee schedules for freestanding ASCs and hospital based outpatient services in one place. For each CPT® code, you can identify the applicable modifiers, status indicators and payment indicators. For procedures that require devices, you can view if there is a credit adjustment policy for the device. Avoid bundling and determine proper modifier use by using the OPPS CCI checker for up to 25 codes at one time. The cross-reference tools allow you to forward and backward map CPT® to ICD-9-CM Volume 1 and 3, ICD-9-CM Volume 1 to ICD-10-CM and ICD-9-CM Volume 1 to the appropriate DRG options. Easily identity the DRG options, including CC and MCC, for each ICD-9-CM Volume 1 code.

HCPCS: COMMON PROCEDURE CODING SYSTEM "HICK-PICKS"

AAPC Coder is so important to medical coders navigating the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II code set because of all it helps you accomplish.

HCPCS Level II touches all types of coding in many settings thanks to its inclusion of supply, service, drug, ambulance, nuclear medicine media, quality reporting, durable medical equipment, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, pathology and laboratory, glasses and hearing aids, and other codes. This government coding system is updated throughout the year, making it the most dynamic code set.

Because so many coding and billing rules define how the more than 6,000 alphanumeric codes will be used to report claims and the quality of services being performed, it helps to have an electronic tool like AAPC Coder to enable speedy, accurate reimbursement. In addition to allow you to search by keyword, code, or code range, AAPC Coder offers these advantages to medical coders:

  • Presentation by Code Chapters, which are then broken into Categories
  • Based on AAPC's unique expanded HCPCS Level II Index and Table of Drugs
  • Updates every quarter so you have the latest codes
  • Add-ons that include lay descriptions, fee schedule, and other resources
  • Complete set of HCPCS Level II modifiers
  • Payment and other information unique to each code
