The Main Screen
When you start CodeSearch Pro, you will first see an introductory
screen. Once your preferences and current files are loaded, you will be
taken to the Main screen.
There are 2 Main Tabs on this screen – Procedure Search (CPT,
HCPCS) and Diagnosis Search (ICD-9). You may switch back and forth
between these tabs without losing your work in either place.
At the top of the Main screen, you will see a toolbar. These menus
allow you to customize certain options within the program, as well as
access special tools and reports (more information is provided later in
this manual).
Regardless of whether you are in procedures or diagnoses, you will see
3 Code Tabs:
Full List – this is the complete list of all current codes, in order
by code. You may scroll these if you wish. You may use the
arrow bars along the right side and bottom of the tabs to
quickly move down the list, or view long descriptions.
Matches – codes that meet your search criteria. Matches will
begin to appear as soon as you have entered the 4th character
©1998-2006 Yost Engineering, Inc.
User’s Manual
in your search (a character is any keyboard letter, number or
symbol, including spaces). If you have too many results, add
additional letters or words to narrow down your search. If you
have too few results, remove letters or words to expand it.
ActiveSearch™ will immediately refresh your matches as you
type – so if you misspell a term, you will immediately know this
and can back up and fix it. This also saves you considerable
time, because you don’t have to type in any more letters than
are necessary to find your code.
In general, you don’t usually have to click the Search button.
However, if you cannot find the code you are looking for, you
can click Search, then Expand Search, and then Expand
Again. At each escalating search, CodeSearch Pro will attempt
to find abbreviations, synonyms, and other cross-references
that may match your search term(s).
Favorites – codes that you have marked as being commonly
used. These may be displayed in code order or alphabetical
order by clicking at the top of the code column or description
column.

Procedure Code Special Tabs
Code Tab
The first tab is called the Code Tab. This shows you the description of
the code you have selected, along with a description of the CodeTip (if
any).
The Code Tab also shows you any notes you have entered for the code.
If you have not entered any notes, you may
Add Notes by clicking on the button above CodeTips are colorful

CCI Tab
The CCI Tab provides detailed information about the Correct Coding
Initiative edits that apply to the selected procedure.
The CCI Tab contains two panes. The first
is Components. These are codes that are
typically considered part of the selected
procedure, and therefore should not be billed
separately unless they were performed at a
different encounter or for a different problem
(and should be billed with a modifier to indicate
this). Codes marked with a red X will not be
paid even if you add a modifier.
The second pane is Mutually Exclusive. These
are codes that are not normally performed at
the same time. Again, if they are performed
at the same time, you will need to add an
appropriate modifier to receive payment. And
if there is a red X, then even a modifier will not
be accepted to allow reimbursement.
©1998-2006 Yost Engineering, Inc.
Note that there are
TWO ways to access CCI
information. You may
access information on an
individual procedure by
clicking on the CCI Tab.
You may also add multiple
procedures to your CCI
batch by right-clicking on
the code, or by using the
Add to CCI Batch button
on the CCI Tab. Once you
have added all of your
procedures, choose View
CCI Batch, and the system
will automatically run a
CCI edit on all selected
procedures.
11
12
CodeSearch™ Pro
There are 2 CCI buttons also available
to you. Add to CCI Batch allows you to
add the selected procedure to a batch
for cross-checking against other codes
you plan to submit on the same claim
(for the same date of service).
Note: You may also access
these same buttons by
simply right-clicking on a
code, and choosing the CCI
functions.
View CCI Batch brings up a summary of all codes you have added
to your batch, and allows you to quickly see if any CCI edits will be
triggered if you bill the codes together, for the same date of service.
The View CCI Batch screen shows you the procedures you have
selected. Click on Check Now to immediately see whether any
CCI edits will be triggered. The two lower panes will show you any
conflicts.
The results pane on the left will show you any codes which are
components of other codes (only the code on the right should be
billed unless a modifier is appropriate). The pane on the right shows
you any codes which are not typically performed together (you should
verify the procedures performed and use a modifier if appropriate).
©1998-2006 Yost Engineering, Inc.
User’s Manual
You may edit the codes in your CCI Batch by using the Delete Code,
Delete All Codes, and Clear Lookup Info buttons.
IMPORTANT! Remember to click Check Now any time you have
made a change.
You may also copy all of the information to the Clipboard, and then
paste it into Word documents and other Windows applications. This
can be very useful for supplying information for insurance appeals.
Diagnosis Code Special Tabs
The diagnosis search screen has only one special tab – the Code Tab.
Just as with the procedure search Code Tab, this shows you the full
description of the diagnosis code selected, as well as any CodeTips.
Any Notes will also appear, with options to Add or Edit your notes, Add
the diagnosis to your Favorites, and Print the code.

CodeSearch™ Pro
Searches & Options
You may search for codes several ways:
If you know the code, but want the description, just type in the
code
If you know the description, and want to find the code, type in
one or more keywords or parts of keywords
To narrow your results, add additional keywords or letters
To expand your results, remove letters or keywords
If you want to limit your search to a certain section of codes
(for example, lab codes starting with 8), add the number 8 to
your search terms
It is not necessary to type full words or terms. For example, rather
than type the word mammogram, which may exclude mammography,
simply type mammo or mamm. Then, based on how many search
results are returned, add additional terms or letters to narrow your
results as needed.
Remember that matches will begin to appear as soon as you have
entered the 4th character in your search (a character is any keyboard
letter, number or symbol, including spaces). If you have too many
results, add additional letters or words to narrow down your search. If
you have too few results, remove letters or words to expand it.
ActiveSearch™ will immediately refresh your matches as you type – so
if you misspell a term, you will immediately know this and can back
up and fix it. This also saves you considerable time, because you don’t
have to type in any more letters than are necessary to find your code.
In general, you don’t usually have to
click the Search button. However,
if you cannot find the code you are
looking for, you can click Search,
then Expand Search, and then
Expand Again. At each escalating
search, CodeSearch Pro will attempt
to find abbreviations, synonyms,
and other cross-references that may
match your search term(s).
Also see SmartSearch Manager
(page 21) which allows you to
enter your own abbreviations
and crosswalks between search
terms and desired results. This
can be especially helpful for
phrases and abbreviations that
tend to be used locally, regionally,
or that are specific to a physician
or specialty.

Right-Click Functions
Some of the functions that are available through buttons in
CodeSearch, are also available quickly by using the right mouse button
(right-click). When you have selected any code, you can right-click
with your mouse, and a pop-up menu will appear.
Copying Codes
The first set of options is to Copy the code. You
may choose to copy just the code, just the
descriptor, the code and the descriptor, or the
notes. Once you have Copied, you may use Paste
(or CTRL-V) to add the information to any
Windows application, such as Word, Notepad,
Excel, and most PC-based software.
Copying Codes works for individual codes only – to print batches of
codes, see Memorizing Codes (below).
To choose other options for printing (including CCI information), use
the Print Code button on the Code Tab.
CCI Batches
When you want to scrub multiple codes against each other for possible
CCI problems, you can add all the codes to the CCI Batch module. You
should only add codes that you plan to bill together, for the same
patient, with the same date of service. You may add codes to the
batch as well as view the batch and process it, by finding each code,
highlighting it, right-clicking and choosing Add to CCI Lookup. When
you have added all codes, right-click and selecting View CCI Lookup.
This will do the same thing as described in CCI Tab (page10).

Memorizing Codes
You may also wish to memorize multiple codes, and then print them
or copy them in a batch. Instead of doing this repeatedly with Copy
Codes, you may do them in batches using Memorize Code. When you
memorize codes, you may mix both procedure and diagnosis codes.
To Memorize one or more codes, simply find each code and highlight
it, right-click with the mouse, and choose Memorize Code. When you
have found all of the codes you want to use, right-click and select View
Memorized Codes. This will allow you to see all of the codes you have
selected.
You may then choose what part(s) of the codes you want to print.
And then you may choose to Print the information, or Send it all to
the Clipboard (for copy-paste). On this screen you may also delete
individual codes you do not wish to include, or clear all of the codes to
start over.

Codes Change!
Sometimes, a code you have marked as a Favorite may be deleted from
the next year’s codes. Don’t worry! The code will stay in your Favorites
list until you are ready to delete it. What you will see is a message
saying <<<Code Not a Valid Procedure>>>. If you see this message, you should find the new code, add it to your
favorites, and then delete the outdated code.
In general, coding information is updated on the following schedule
(interim corrections may also be released as made available):
ICD-9
October 1st each year
CPT
January 1st each year
HCPCS
Quarterly
CCI
Quarterly
Code Info

Maintenance Reports
CodeSearch Pro allows you to print two kinds of reports to make it
easy to review user-entered data.
Using the Reports toolbar, you
will find the report generator.
You may choose to include
either procedure codes or
diagnosis codes, and may
select a list of all codes saved as
Favorites, or all codes with userentered Notes.
The report may be organized
by numerical Code Order, or by
description Alphabetical order.
You may also choose to print only codes in a certain range.
Once you have defined your report, you may Print it, or you may Save
to File (where it will be generated as a simple text document).
This feature can be useful in generating a list of codes to review each
year, update notes, or transition favorites from old codes to new codes.

coding guidelines, which may be selected by clicking on the
appropriate tab, include:
E/M Services
Anesthesia
Surgery
Radiology
Pathology & Lab
Medicine
You may open the CPT Guidelines and leave them up as a reference

Fee Schedule Calculator
The Fee Schedule Calculator allows you to quickly find the Medicare
payment for a service for any location in the United States. It also
allows you to set up your own RVU fee conversion factors, so that you
can set up your own fee schedule, or determine fees for commercial
carriers who use the RVU payment system.
To find a fee, simply follow the following 4 steps:
1.Enter the procedure code.
2.Choose your state (or “All” to see nationwide results).
3.Choose Facility (i.e. hospital) or Non-Facility (i.e. office) place of
service.
4.Click Get Fees.
You will then see the reimbursement that Medicare will make for a
particular service. If you request “All” locations, you may sort the list
by reimbursement amounts (highest to lowest or vice versa) by simply
clicking on the “Fee ($)” column header. Similarly, you can sort by any
other column by clicking the top of the column – click once to sort
highest to lowest, click again to sort lowest to highest.

19
20
CodeSearch™ Pro
Edit Factors allows you to add
or delete additional conversion
factors (previous or future years’,
other payors’, your own office’s
fee schedule rate). You may also
assign a name to each of these
conversion factors, and assign
one of them to be the “default”
conversion factor if a user doesn’t
choose a specific factor on the
main Fee Schedule screen.
While using the Fee Schedule Calculator, users may use any of the
entered conversion factors by simply changing the selection box on
the main screen.
POS and Modifiers Tables
The Place of Service and Modifiers tables are another reference tool
which can be left up and moved to one side while you continue to
work in the CodeSearch program. They will remain on the screen until
you either close them or close the program.
©1998-2006 Yost Engineering, Inc.
User’s Manual
There are four tabs with the following information provided:
CPT® Level I Modifiers — for use with procedure codes, and
maintained by the American Medical Association. Typically
provide information related to billing and the circumstances of
the service.
HCPCS Level II Modifiers — also for use with procedure codes,
but maintained by Medicare. Typically provide information
related to specifics of the procedure itself.
Place of Service Codes — the official Medicare place of service
codes for where a service is rendered.
Physical Status Codes — for facility claims. Indicate patient
physical status in terms of overall health.
SmartSearch Manager
Some offices find that their physicians or referring providers use
terminology that is not present in CPT or ICD-9. In this case, you may
wish to set up SmartSearchTM to customize results and allow you to
more easily find these codes.
With SmartSearch, you can define your own dictionary of words
and terms that cross-reference each other. So if your office uses an
abbreviation of “SRPHYS” for a senior patient well visit, you can have
“SRPHYS” automatically look up “99387” for a preventive physical exam.
You can set up an unlimited number of terms or specialty-specific
abbreviations to make your searches quickly return the codes you
need.
When users search using “SRPHYS” nothing will immediately appear
as they are typing. When they click on Search however, CodeSearch
Pro will initiate a search of additional coding dictionaries, including
©1998-2006 Yost Engineering, Inc.
21
22
CodeSearch™ Pro
the customized SmartSearch terms, and the result of 99387 will be
returned.
Search terms can be cross-referenced to specific CPT or ICD-9 codes,
and they may also reference other words or search terms. SmartSearch
can also be used to set up crosswalks between old (deleted) codes and
new codes.
There are only two steps necessary to add a SmartSearch entry:
1. The Primary Search Term — this is what you would normally
expect users to type in to the search field. EX: SRPHYS
2. Additional Search Terms — these are the additional keywords that
should be cross-referenced with the search term entered above.
EX: 99387
SmartSearch is ideally suited to handle abbreviations, lay terminology,
NOS terms, difficult-to-find terms, and cross-references from old codes
to new codes.
By setting up a SmartSearch entry each time a difficult procedure or
diagnosis is encountered, you will quickly begin to cut down on the
amount of time it takes you to code correctly, and translate written
orders or descriptions, into the specific terminology required by CPT®,
HCPCS, and ICD-9.
Updates
You should periodically check for coding and reimbursement updates.
We suggest that you do this at least once per quarter.
(If you have provided an email address, we will notify you when
updates are available for downloading.)
To update your system, click on Updates on the menu bar, and then
Update Wizard. The Wizard will walk you step-by-step through the
update process, which takes anywhere from 1-3 minutes to longer,
depending on your bandwidth and the number of updates that are
needed.

Unless you have manually downloaded files, simply choose the
Internet connection option, and Next. (An internet connection is
required to update the program, but not at any other time.) You will
see the following screen, and each step will check off as it completes.
The program will then tell you exactly which files it is going to update,
and ask if it should continue. It will then complete the update and
return to the program.
If you have questions about performing updates, contact our office
and we will be happy to walk you through the process.

Reviewing and Changing Settings
The Settings menu bar allows you to turn certain features on and off,
and also allows you to specify whether CodeSearch Pro should load
with the Procedure or Diagnosis screen active (some practices look up
mostly diagnosis codes, so they prefer that it start up with diagnosis
codes as the default search).
The File Settings options allow you to view which code files are
currently loaded, and allow you to change to different files if necessary.
Under User File Settings, you may also create new or choose different
Favorites and Notes files.
Most settings changes are used infrequently, so we recommend you
contact our office and we can help you make any necessary changes.
Multi-User Server Installation Notes
CodeSearch Pro is network-ready, and may be installed on a server, and
shortcuts rolled out to individual users (one license is required for each
end-user). If all users in a multi-user environment will use the same
files, a single shortcut will work without any modification.
However, if you wish different users or departments to be able to
access the program and use separate settings (such as their own
Favorites, Notes, etc.), then a special configuration file tag must be
added to the shortcuts.

In the shortcut properties (right-click on the shortcut), you would enter
the following (for example):
“C:\Programs\CodeSearchPro.exe” cfgfile=labdeptcfg.cfg
Location of Program…1 space…cfgfile followed by an = sign & the
name of the .cfg file to use
REMEMBER! Each separate PC or workstation that will access CodeSearch,
needs to have its own license. Additional licenses are discounted, so please
let us know if you need additional licenses at any time.
When the program is initially installed, a default configuration file will
be established (cscfg.cfg), located in the application directory. You
may wish to start with this file, and if new users or workgroups are
necessary, simple make a copy of this file and rename it. Then from
within the program, you can change the specific user group settings.
As with all support, please feel free to call our office and we can walk
you through this procedure quickly and easily.
And Finally…
Enjoy your copy of CodeSearch™ Pro and please let us know if you
have any suggestions. We do our best to incorporate user feedback
with each new release. Tell us what you need, and we will do our best
to bring that to you!
Thank You!
