Hi,

AAE does not provide coding for operative reports and chart notes.

 SuperCoder offers SuperCoder on Demand (SOD) (http://www.supercoder.com/coding-answers/coding-on-demand) for coding of an operative report or chart note and you can contact (866)228-9252 or e-mail customerservice@supercoder.com for more information.
