Get a Jump-Start on Your Medical Practice’s 2018 Coding Education
A medical practice’s coding and billing accuracy has never been more critical to its financial survival. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) requires medical practices to submit specific data to meet value-based payment requirements. And the rise of high deductible health plans (HDHPs) means more patients than ever before will have to pay out of pocket for certain services, which could lead to declining patient numbers and revenue shortfalls. In short, every dollar counts, and accurately coded claims are a must.
Medical coders and billers are the first line of defense for their medical practices as they take on the monumental payment challenges of value-based programs and HDHPs. And every coding professional knows how satisfying it is to submit accurate claims and receive your practice’s deserved pay.
