About the Author
This book was written by one of the industry’s leading Medical Coding Instructors, Mrs. Delissa Ortega. Highly recognized and esteemed in the industry, Mrs. Ortega used every ounce of her expertise to carefully study the medical coding concepts that are frequently utilized in the real world and tested on certification exams. With great determination, she brings to the industry a colossal amount of knowledge in a “bite size,” progressive-type format.
She wrote every case keeping in mind that a “well-written” case will expose what the learner doesn’t know. This prompted the meticulous undertaking of the case studies she breaks down. After writing the cases, she moved onto the extensive answer key rationales. This is where she approached every case with a heart of compassion and a spirit of servanthood to the learner. Here she reveals her treasured trade secrets and teaches the learner how to completely obliterate the misfortunes that testers are often left vulnerable to.
Why You Should Get Medical Coding Exam Prep Study Cases
After equipping you with the medical coding skills needed to pass the test, the book moves the learner to the “real-world” aspect of the field. Get ready to master the skills needed to hit the ground running as you prepare to advance into the industry.

These will be the critical words that the medical coder will enter into their encoder software while performing the day to day tasks of the job.
And still, it doesn’t end there. Get ready to learn how to locate the diagnosis and procedure codes using the intricate alphabetical indexes of your coding manuals. Hands down, there has never been a creation where the learner is offered exam preparation and real-world preparation at the same time.
Our new books will be available for purchase on July 17. Stay tuned to our store and follow us on social media for the latest medical coding news and products!
