PMIC uses Smythe-Sewn« binding. In the Smythe-Sewn binding process the pages of the book are first sewn together, then bound into the cover. The result is a book that is virtually indestructible and that lays flat during use.
PMIC was founded in 1986. By 1989, from a humble one-book beginning, PMIC became the nation's leading independent publisher and value-added reseller of medical coding, reimbursement and practice management books with a reputation for quality, service and value. Coding and compliance information changes constantly and it is our job to keep up with it so you don't have to. You can trust us to provide you with books that contain the most complete, current, accurate and "official" information available. While our books win a lot of awards, what is more important to us is that our customers love them. That's because we consider our books as "tools" and spend a lot of time thinking about how, when and where our customers will use our products. You can order with confidence, knowing that you will always receive the best, most innovative books available. Because of the industry standard features we introduced to this market, such as spiral binding, thumb-indexing, enhanced color-coding and compact sizing, our publications represent exceptional values to our customers.
Please remember: The government no longer allows a grace period for annual code sets. The new HIPAA Transaction and Code Set Rule requires providers to use national medical code sets that are valid at the time that a service is provided. ICD-9-CM code revisions become effective October 1st each year while CPT and HCPCS code revisions become effective January 1st. In order for you to meet this requirement, you must have the revised CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM codes in your possession before the implementation dates. The best way to do this is to order your code books early. Review current coding resources.
