Monthly Reminders
Coding Newsletter Keeps Surgeons Informed

Create a monthly coding newsletter to send to surgeons that includes CPT-specific information about procedures they commonly perform at your facility. Break down a single code each month, noting potential issues — or previously identified problems — to ensure procedures are coded properly, so surgeons and your facility are reimbursed fully. The communication is a nice service that improves physician satisfaction and will be key to the successful implementation of ICD-10 in October.
