Assessing the appropriate codes for procedures based on new technologies or, in limited cases, for the products themselves, is a high-stakes endeavor. Using the wrong code can shortchange your customers or make them the target of billing fraud.
Making sure that these codes are appropriate for your business ensures that the correct payment will be received. Coding must be scrupulously appropriate and adhere to the rules of the American Medical Association (AMA), in the case of CPT codes, and the ICD 9 Coordination and Maintenance Committee, in the case of ICD 9 codes.
RPI has a thorough grasp of the rules of the AMA, including both codes and their authoritative interpretation. Several of our coders are professionally certified to deal with coding assessments.
Some major coding changes are on the horizon with the coming advent of ICD 10 Diagnosis and Procedure Codes. New codes may need to be brought into the picture to make sure that your business is getting paid. RPI can help you understand what these changes are and how they will affect your products and your business.
