Date:3/31/2009

CHICAGO and ST. LOUIS, Missouri, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Books Authored by Noted Coding Author Carol J. Buck

Two of the biggest names in health care publishing, the American Medical Association (AMA) and Elsevier have announced an exclusive agreement to co-publish International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) manuals by Carol J. Buck, beginning with the 2010 editions, in fall 2009.

"It's important that coders at every step of their careers, from training through professional practice, have the tools they need to code confidently and accurately," said author Carol J. Buck. "With AMA and Elsevier as partners, these books will reach more coding professionals than ever before."

AMA/Elsevier 2010 ICD-9-CM books will be published in August 2009 in a variety of sizes, formats and prices to meet every need. They will feature exclusive Frank H. Netter anatomical artwork, extensive illustrations, color coded tables and annotations, as well as coding tips, notes and definitions. 2010 HCPCS, available in December 2009, will include many of the same features throughout. Both product lines will be supported by exclusive free companion Web sites offering access to the latest updates, coding tips and links to other valuable coding resources.

"Carol Buck's ICD-9-CM and HCPCS Professional and Standard editions are best-sellers in medical coding education," said Michael Ledbetter, Coding Publisher for Elsevier's Health Sciences Division. "We believe these books will fit perfectly with the AMA's commitment to making the very best ICD-9-CM and HCPCS products available to their physician members and customers in professional practice."

"The AMA saw an opportunity to bring this truly superior line of products to the health professionals we serve," said Robert A. M
