Medical coding is a complicated and detailed science, which has been made ever more complex with the mandates of ICD10. Each year, there are over 1,000 new, changed, or deleted medical codes. An incorrect medical code or poor clinical documentation can result in less than optimal revenue – meaning no money, less money than the diagnosis warrants, compliance risks from overcoding, or delays in claims processing. Thankfully, there are a number of common medical coding and clinical documentation errors that can be prevented. Understanding what they are, gaining tips on how to improve documentation, and seeing case studies of bottomline benefits will result in a more informed medical group finance executive and practice manager.
