Importance of Coding
Procedure and diagnosis codes identify physician services rendered to the patient, the clinical diagnosis and the medical necessity of care. The medical codes become the basis for determining payment. Because many payers assign payment rates to each medical code, hence coding becomes the mechanism for identifying and charging for services.
It is imperative that we develop a consistent coding methodology. We must narrow the wide variations among physicians. Consistent coding reduces compliance risks while ensuring realization of appropriate revenues that accurately reflect services provided and resources used.
Coding is both unique and complex, leaving coding in the hands of individuals who are not specialist can prove devastating for healthcare organizations.
In todays medical arena, healthcare organizations face a ever changing and complex set of rules and billing requirements, keeping up to date with these changes can become a daunting task.
