Medical coding - is a prerequisite for medical billing, filing and claiming reimbursement. It is the process in which a patient’s history covering his/her condition, diagnosis, prescription and procedures are converted into a set of alphanumeric codes. These are then used in medical billing to process claims.
Coders refer to primarily 3 types of codes namely: Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), International Classification of Diseases (ICD) or the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS). ICD is a set of codes published by the World Health Organization (WHO), used to identify known diseases and other health problems and are the primary set of codes used by coders. CPT is a U.S. standard for coding medical procedures, developed by the American Medical Association (AMA), to bring clarity to the treatment procedures and medical billing. HCPCS was developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and consists of 3 levels.
While ICD coding standards focus on the diagnosis, CPT identifies the services provided, and are used by insurance companies to determine how much physicians will be paid for their services. Medical coding is the base for medical billing and the rest of the RCM process in the healthcare industry.
