Don’t Let These Top 10 Coding Pitfalls Thwart Your Claims

Are coding errors plaguing your claims and costing your practice money your providers deserve? Every dollar matters these days and your practice can’t afford to throw away a single dollar because of common, fixable, coding mistakes. Many coding errors are avoidable if you know what to look for. In just one hour, learn the top 10 pitfalls coders fall into and how to avoid them, so that you’re guaranteed to bring in more money and avoid costly, time-consuming denials.

 

Some bullet points:

  • Specificity is key when choosing a diagnosis code, but are you missing one essential dx coding tip that can make or break your claim? Find out in this webinar!
  • Modifiers give payers the additional information needed to get your claim paid, but if you choose the wrong one you might generate an automatic denial. Learn how to avoid this catch-22.
  • Undercoding is just as detrimental as overcoding - find out why.
  • If coders don’t have access to charts and op reports, you’re asking for denials and audits — uncover the hidden documentation clues that ensure proper coding.
  • If you’re not keeping up with ever-changing coding rules, your coding and, therefore, your reimbursement will suffer. Tackle this challenge by discovering what you need to stay up to date.
