You send us scanned clinical information or patient charts by uploading them to a secure FTP location or by giving us access to your practice management software (PMS) through a secure VPN connection.
Pre-coding involves entering the key-in codes for referring doctors, insurance companies and modifiers. Our pre-coders also add diagnostic and procedural codes that do not exist in the system already.
We acknowledge the significance of accuracy in coding on your revenue. We emphasize a lot on accuracy at this stage. Our coding team consists of efficient, experienced coders with an average experience of 4 years. There are two types of coding errors, Up-coding (or over-coding) which will result in denial. Down-coding (or under-coding) that will result in reimbursement much lower than what you deserve. Our certified coders (CPC) refer ICD-9-CM, LMRP, CPT Assistant, and HCPCS Level II. We check for the compatibility of diagnoses with procedural codes with the appropriate modifiers and eliminate under coding that result in lesser revenue and over coding that increases denials that warrants re-work on denials.
Files are audited by a certified senior coding staff who checks on the accuracy of the codes assigned. Our quality assurance team verifies that the charts for up-coding or down-coding will ensure maximum reimbursement and fewer or no denials.
The coded charts are either transmitted to the billing team or submitted to you (depending on your requirement) for further claims processing. This is either done by uploading the coded charts onto a secure FTP location or by email or even better- on a Practice Management System.
