Medical coding is a specialized professional domain within the wider field of healthcare administration. Professional medical coders review the documentation contained in patients’ medical records and translate the diseases, procedures, services and materials cited in the documentation, into universally accepted, industry-standard medical codes. Every time a patient receives professional health care in a physician’s office, hospital outpatient facility or ambulatory surgical center (ASC), the provider must document the services provided so as to claim the bill charges. Therefore, Medical coding professionals plays a major role in providing the key information of the physician’s service in the form of codes, to get accurate bill charges and claims by medical billing professionals which are paid, whether by a commercial payer, the patient, or CMS(Centre for Medicare and Medicaid Services).
