Medical Coding is one of the most important process in Revenue cycle management. Accurate coding is essential to avoid denials and increase reimbursement. To prevent any coding errors and coding denials our team of AHIMA or AAPC certified medical coders work on a simple principle “if it is not documented, it cannot be coded”.
BlissMD Healthcare Solutions offer Medical Coding service as a stand alone or as a part of Revenue Cycle Management services. Our experienced specialty specific coders are proficient in providing the following services:
Copies of Patient’s Super bills, Charge sheets, Medical records or any other clinical documentation related to coding are received from the client’s office or retrieved from the client’s EHR system through a secure connection.
Superbills with pre-assigned ICD 10 and CPT codes are forwarded directly to the QA department for an audit to ensure codes are appropriate for the services rendered and do not miss any digits. Once obtaining QA approval, the superbills are sent directly to the Charge entry department for processing.
Clinical documents, Medical records or Charge sheets that are not pre coded are segregated based on the specialty and assigned to the specialty specific medical coders to initiate the coding process.
CPT-4/HCPCS and ICD-10-CM Coding
The specialty specific coders study the Medical records and assign the appropriate CPT/HCPCS, ICD-10 and modifiers. Our coders ensure that the procedure and diagnosis codes assigned are in accordance with the procedure performed to avoid any possibilities of up-coding or down coding errors. Once completed, the coded documents are forwarded to the QA Department for auditing.
A serious QA check is performed at every stage to meet client requirements and maintain accuracy. The Approved charts are then forwarded to the client for review then after client approval the charge entry department initiates the claims processing. Every effort is made to ensure the coding is completed with perfection and an error free claim is submitted to the insurance carrier.
