Reimbursements at Healthcare provider organizations have been challenged by regulatory changes, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC), medical necessity requirements and the transition from volume to value. Providers must therefore pay close attention to their medical record documentation and the accuracy of their Medical Coding to ensure prompt and correct reimbursements.
Furthermore, Medical Coding is not just important for reimbursements. ICD-10-CM/PCS and CPT code sets are used to provide greater specificity when tracking public health conditions, reporting chronic conditions associated with the Medicare Risk Adjustment program, MACRA/MIPS, epidemiological research, measuring patient outcomes, making clinical decisions and detecting fraud and abuse. All this has put significant performance pressure on HIM and Medical Coding departments within provider organizations.
