  1. It looks like the Glossary link should be http://www.healthpolicyohio.org/resources/tools/glossary.php I would add specific billing terms like “Current Procedural Terminology Codes” “Allowed Amount” and “Modifier” (along with many more). Health-Insurance-Forum.com is working on getting our dictionary up at Health-Insurance-Forum.com/dictionary
