There are two commonly found philosophies within HBMA when it comes to a billing company's role in coding. Usually, either a company embraces coding as a core function of their business model or they make it the responsibility of the client. Of course, there are variations on every model and some companies may even do a little of both, but as a rule, I am comfortable saying that most organizations fall into one of the two camps.
