One of the key reasons for claim denials is Medical Coding errors. With the ICD and CPT code standards defining the reimbursements received by healthcare providers for medical services rendered, it is important for both clinicians and coders to understand the specificity associated with each procedure. Often, clinicians leave a lot of procedures not recorded, a term known as DNFB (Discharges not fully billed). Our expert coders can identify the services that have not been billed for, and work with physicians to improve overall reimbursements.

Coding department is at a critical intersect between revenue cycle professionals and clinicians. Quite clearly, coders need to work closely with physicians to be able to operate at peak efficiency and optimize reimbursements. Our expert coders can identify the short comings in clinical documentation, identify facility or provider specific documentation issues, provide detailed feedback and educate the physicians on un-billed procedures as well as documentation improvement, and work with physicians to improve revenue.
We also offer provider and facility specific education programs that could be delivered in a group or one-on-one setting, over phone or onsite sessions.
