Every year, CPT® is revised and updated to accommodate current terminology, technology and practice. According to American Medical Association, 2016 will see many CPT code changes taking effect
Durham, NC (PRWEB) November 16, 2015
CPT® codes are essential to the documentation for any medical procedures, forming a coding structure that encompasses all medical procedures. However, frequent changes in the coding in the recent past have made it difficult to keep track of the various differences. Frequent changes leads to use of incorrect codes resulting in erroneous reimbursement claims and billing. Many medical service providers, especially small- and medium-sized practices, witness a rise in expenses and compliance costs as they adapt to the new regulatory measures.
With 2016 nearly here, and ICD-10 having come into force recently, this is the perfect time for a review of the changes, along with some lessons from experience, which will aid medical practices in determining the best course for their future coding practices. The costs of non-compliance will be high – both in terms of legal costs and harm caused to the practice, as news of violations in an industry based on quality of service and trust is likely to cause massive damage to reputation. Thus, it becomes imperative that all - medical service providers learn and adhere to the new coding norms to avoid this kind of regulatory trouble.
