Medical coding requires documentation of the sequence of events right from the time a patient enters for a health check-up until its post-treatment care. A medical coding should enumerate the accurate history of a patient’s treatment starting from:
- Physical examination
- Diagnostic tests
- Research and prognosis based on test results
- Prescribing requisite medicines
- Post-treatment consultation and care
If you are wondering why detailed histories of the patients are required to be maintained then here is your answer. A proper chronology of events ensures compliance when it comes to submitting claims and payment of medical and insurance bills. Also, you need to produce the bills to your patients to maintain transparency and ensure proper cash flow for your services. An accurate medical coding and billing procedure also proves the fact that you practice within the boundaries of all the rules and regulations and follow contractual compliance.
