The difference between a physician receiving reimbursement for services or enduring numerous payment delays involves up-to-date, medical-documentation procedures. That`s what Medicode`s 1998 Medical Documentation book is all about.
New features of 1998 Medical Documentation includes guides for developing and maintaining compliance plans, and what to expect if a Medicare auditor comes to call. Its new encyclopedic organization, including an easy reference index, makes it simpler to find answers to specific questions or issues as they arise.
Standard features include information about documenting medical records, descriptions for surgical-procedure terms, ancillary work, chart assessment, emergency department services, and the legal rights of minors.
