This easy-to-understand, easy-to-use manual allows you to lookup the column 1 code (formerly comprehensive code) for a particular procedure and see all of the column 2 codes (formerly component codes) that cannot be reimbursed if you bill under the column 1 code. It also shows which of the two mutually exclusive codes will be reimbursed. The full printed version of the manual includes all of these column1/column2 code pairs arranged into chapters. These chapters are organized by CPT codes for specific medical procedures and services. HCPCS Level II codes under the Part B Medicare jurisdiction are also provided.


This manual also contains the updated:

  • Introduction to the Correct Coding Initiative
  • General Correct Coding policies
