APA Style Sheet 2AbstractIn this 250- 300 essay/written document, I will be attempting to describe how complianceplans correlate to different medical records, documentation standards. I will then describe orexplain in detail how the 10 steps in the medical billing process relate to compliance plans,medical records, and documentation standards. I will then myself have a better understandingand knowledge gained in the process of medical records being documented and what goes on inthe billing cycle through the 10 steps of the medical billing process.
