Coding Corner Tips

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 2:02:23 PM

When dictating your histories and physicals, operative reports or any report that has diagnoses or procedures included, please DO NOT dictate ICD-9-codes for them. This will be done after further review of the dictation, making sure that there is documentation for selecting the appropriate ICD-9 or CPT code.

If there are any questions regarding the coding for outpatients or inpatients, please contact Michele Rando at ext. 5487.
