American Medical Association (AMA) every year releases a new set of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and it’s important for orthopedic physicians to stay updated with these coding updates. Most orthopedic physicians have preferred to invest in in-house coding and billing resource that include certified coders and billers with experience in dealing with claims denials and insurance companies.
At Legion Healthcare Solutions (LHS), we understand the changing billing condition of orthopedic physicians; we continuously work with our training team who keeping the coders and billers up to date with changes.
“At LHS, over last few years, we have seen the trend that orthopedic physicians have deployed their own team for coding and billing, after some time the rate of denials goes up forcing them to outsource their billing. We understand the underlying the problem with such situations and deploy an on boarding process, where without losing the staff we push your billing into more clearance cycle.”-Billing Manager at LHS
The new ICD-10-CM code set that came out in 2020 has around 394 changes with 71 deletions, 75 revisions, and 248 new codes.
