About Medical Coding
Difference between medical billing & coding
- Medical billers assign codes and insurance information and insert them into the billing software.
- Medical coders decipher the documents written by the doctors or nurses and apply the appropriate procedure codes.
Medical coders 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.
