Medical billing and coding professionals are responsible for the collection of physician charges and patient data to ensure that claims are submitted to insurance carriers accurately and in the most efficient and expeditious manner.
Medical coders determine codes for physician procedures and diagnosis - using ICD-10 and CPT-4 coding protocols - for third party billing purposes. Physician practices, hospitals, pharmacies, longterm care facilities, chiropractic practices, physical therapy practices and other health care providers all depend on medical billing and coding for insurance carrier reimbursement.
