Outsource Medical Coding Services
Medical coding is a process that involves transforming diagnostic reports, health care procedures, medical services, and medical equipment into medical codes which are generally universal and alpha numeric in nature. These codes play a significant role in the medical claims process and are extremely crucial in obtaining insurance claims from the health care insurance companies.
Medical Coding Services include obtaining medical reports from the physician’s office which includes various details like prescription details, condition of the patient, diagnosis details listed by the doctor and medical procedures or surgeries performed for the patient. They further analyze these reports to deduce information such as transcription of physician’s notes, radiology or laboratory results, surgery procedures etc. and assign appropriate codes so that there is no hindrance in claiming insurances.
Professional medical coders need to accurately review the medical data and then assign standard medical codes from CPT, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II classification systems. At Virtual Team India, we have experienced medical coders who have over 15 years of experience with handling medical coding services in the United States.
