Sharing Expertise in a GeBBS Coding Clinic
Of the myriad rules, regulations, and oversights required to operate a healthcare facility in the U.S., one of the most perplexing is coding requirements. The ICD-10 classifications contain over 68,000 diagnosis codes and more than 72,000 procedural codes, with thousands more added each year. It is such a gargantuan task that medical billing and coding jobs consume one-fifth of the entire health care workforce, a number that will continue to grow as ICD-10 is fully implemented.
Understanding how the ICD-10 codes are interpreted and presented can make a significant impact on the revenue stream and profitability of your health care enterprise. In response to this challenge, GeBBS Healthcare Solutions provides a blog and other educational resources on its resources to provide a coding clinic to help coders, both at GeBBS and elsewhere, understand the scope and consequences of accurate medical coding and other healthcare topics of relevance.
The GeBBS coding clinic is designed to take the mystery out of this important administrative component by offering coding insights to help improve clinical coding guidance and adherence to standards that support consistent and accurate coding.
One particularly valuable feature of the GeBBS coding clinic blog is our ICD-10 quick tips. If you are unclear about ICD-10 implementation or how the end of the one-year grace period, or have questions about your own coding process, the insights from the ICD-10 quick tips may be particularly valuable.
