Securing accurate and appropriate payment for health care services challenges health care providers, insurance companies, and patients. Today's complex health care insurance and governmental payment systems depend on medical coding to determine proper payment. The coding and reimbursement specialist program incorporates the knowledge and skills needed to assign the correct code for prompt and accurate reimbursement. C&RS professionals analyze patient records, assign ICD (ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM/ICD-10-PCS), CPT, and HCPCS codes to diagnoses, procedures, and services provided to patients for timely and accurate healthcare billing, reimbursement, and medical necessity.
