In physical therapy billing, the coded treatment must match the original diagnosis in order for the payment to process correctly.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) November 30, 2013
“Understanding the correct medical terminology of medical billing and coding procedures correctly streamlines the billing process and allows practices to avoid costly delays in getting paid,” said Chhoda.
He noted how important it is to define medical terminology and explained how crucial it is to all private practices who are trying to implement an effective electronic medical records system.
Chhoda recently focuses on the medical terminology involved with specific treatments, tests and procedures that physical therapists deal with every day. In physical therapy billing, the coded treatment must match the original diagnosis in order for the payment to process correctly. Modern physical therapy software demand correct coding and an effective physical therapy billing system requires it.
He added that learning the correct medical terminology is not as daunting as it sounds. Chhoda explains that understanding the EMR system of prefixes and suffixes involved in the world of medical terminology is the key to effective learning. Once these professionals have mastered the terminology they can better understand the correct treatments and tests to recommend and conduct.
