Medical Coding (certified coding specialist)

Medical coders (CCS’s) are the translators of “doctor speak.” They take what the doctor writes on a patient’s chart and translate it as carefully as possible into the proper insurance coding. This is to make sure the patient gets billed correctly, and the insurance company accurately reimburses the doctor’s office.

Each action, from the moment a patient walks through the doors of a medical facility to the time they check out to leave, has a code. Every step that is taken is transcribed into the medical chart, and it’s up to the coder to accurately represent the activity, such as tests and diagnoses, with the proper code.

Medical Billing

A medical biller has three parts to their job: creating claims, transaction reports, and patient billing. A biller worth their salt will be skillful at helping all parties involved navigate the murky waters of laws, regulations, and guidelines.
