Our coders are certified by AAPC and complete their CEUs every year to maintain their certification. The team of coders code or reviews each CPT and diagnosis to make sure the claim is accurate. They also review it to make sure that the documentation is sufficient. By this process we are able to give feedback to help the doctor maximize reimbursement for the procedures the perform.
Every quarter the coding team does an audit that includes reviewing charts, and the physicians are educated how to better their process for better reimbursement.
