Medical Coding

Before diving deep into how Baruch Business Solutions (BBS) could help your business, it’s vital to get clarified what medical coding means and that’s how you will understand why you should outsource your needs to providers like us. To be precise, medical billing refers to the process of translating important medical information into simple codes to document medical records and inform accurate medical billing. The diagnoses and procedure codes are normally taken from medical record documentation, such as transcription of physician’s notes, laboratory and radiologic results, etc.

Next, it’s obvious to get an idea, Who are medical coders then? Medical coding professionals are the ones who ensure the codes are applied correctly during the medical billing process. It generally covers abstracting complex information from documentation, assigning the appropriate codes, and creating a claim to be paid by insurance carriers. Thus, their main task is to review clinical statements and assign standard codes using CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II classification systems.
