In an earlier blog, we discussed some of the different entities in the medical billing and coding world. Since that blog outlined different types of coding, we’ll focus on correct coding in this one! Why is this important? As you can imagine, your private practice can lose a lot of valuable time and money when claims are sent with improper coding...which results in a back-and-forth process where your people are spending too much time on the same problem. This process lengthens your revenue cycle management and ultimately results in a higher potential for lost revenue.
