Frequently Asked Questions

1. What coding systems and guidelines does your organization follow for medical billing and coding services?

At Doctor Papers, we follow industry-standard coding systems such as CPT, ICD-10 (10th Edition), and the HCPCS coding system. Similarly, we adhere to the coding guidelines set forth by authoritative bodies such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These guidelines serve as essential references for ensuring accurate coding and billing practices. Additionally, we closely follow the specific coding and billing guidelines provided by commercial payers to ensure compliance with their requirements.

2. How do you ensure compliance with the latest coding updates and changes in regulations?

Ensuring compliance with the latest coding updates and regulatory changes is a top priority for us. We have a dedicated team that stays updated with the latest coding guidelines, regulations, and changes. We actively participate in training programs, attend conferences, and follow reputable industry resources to stay informed. Additionally, we have established internal processes to implement these updates effectively across our coding and billing services.

3. Can you provide examples of the software or tools you use for medical coding and billing? How do they streamline the process and improve accuracy?

We utilize advanced software and tools specifically designed for medical coding and billing. For coding, we use SelectCoder (DecisionHealth) and EncoderPro (Optum), and for billing, we have extensive experience in working with various Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) systems. Currently, we utilize a diverse range of 15 different EHR and PM systems tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. These tools streamline the coding process by providing access to up-to-date code sets, automated coding suggestions, and comprehensive documentation features and help improve accuracy, efficiency, and compliance with coding guidelines. We also have developed an in-house mechanism to optimize our processes and ensure accurate coding outcomes.

4. What measures do you have in place to ensure accurate code selection, sequencing, and appropriate use of modifiers?

Accuracy in code selection, sequencing, and appropriate use of modifiers is crucial for proper reimbursement and compliance. To ensure this, we have established rigorous quality assurance protocols. Our experienced coders undergo regular training and audits to maintain proficiency and adherence to coding guidelines. We conduct internal reviews, perform double-checks, and utilize coding cross-reference resources to minimize errors and ensure accurate coding.

5. How do you handle complex coding scenarios, such as unbundling rules or coding for procedures with multiple components?

Complex coding scenarios, including unbundling rules and procedures, require specialized expertise. Our skilled coding team has experience in handling such scenarios. We closely follow coding guidelines and pay special attention to code bundling and unbundling rules by utilizing coding manuals, official coding guidelines, and industry resources like CMS LCD & NCD guidelines, NCCI (PTP & MUE) edits, and guidelines of specific payers to accurately code complex procedures and ensure compliance.

6. What steps do you take to ensure documentation requirements are met for accurate coding and billing purposes?

Accurate coding and billing rely on comprehensive and compliant documentation. We have robust processes in place to ensure documentation requirements are met. Our coders work closely with healthcare providers to obtain complete and precise documentation. We conduct regular documentation audits, provide feedback to providers, and offer education on proper documentation practices. These measures help ensure accurate coding, appropriate reimbursement, and compliance with coding and billing regulations and also minimize any potential compliance risks.
