Terry takes the practical approach in discussing the frequent question of “Should physicians assign their own codes after a patient encounter?” Is the expense of hiring a coder worth the savings of having the physician provide the codes themselves or would this flag a practice for an audit? What are the pros and cons of hiring a certified coder versus having the physician use technological advancements to code?
Ms. Fletcher will address those issues, along with a discussion on practice revenue that is always impacted by the “coder” whomever that may be. Join us for this important practice discussion.
