The need for certified medical coders
Change is constant in medical coding due to medical and technological breakthroughs, evolving health insurance legislation and changes in codes on account of other factors. Hence a healthcare facility is always in need of experienced medical coders with the required certification. Thus, when an employer hires a coder with a professional certification, they can be confident the candidate has the required knowledge and skills proficiency.
Medical coding is not a straightforward process and nearly 8.5 percent of total claims in a multispecialty facility are denied the first time. Re-working claims are expensive. Hence coders are required to be knowledgeable in their specialties as well as keep up with the constant changes in the codes and payor guidelines.
Accurate coding and coding audit are crucial
Whether it be a small practice or a hospital, coding audits are as important as coding. Ensuring clinical documentation accuracy and claims information is vital to risk mitigation and managing the revenue cycle.
Accurate coding can therefore be a source of stress for a physician when all you want is the freedom to focus on your patients. Not to worry! Bristol Healthcare Services is here to assist you. For over twenty years, we have served physicians, helping them to increase their revenue by submitting clean claims.
