Covid-19 Coding Services
This novel coronavirus outbreak has changed not only the provision of care but the methodology of care providers are using for their patients. With patients now requiring treatment as a result of contracting COVID-19, there are a number of new coding challenges facing providers and coders alike.
If you need any assistance with how to properly document and/or assign the appropriate codes for treating patients with COVID-19, please feel free to reach out to us. The Coding Network can help by providing telephonic Helpline Services to explain the correct measures that need to be factored in when documenting medical services to patients infected with or potentially infected with coronavirus. Additionally, we can assist with ongoing or supplementary coding for all COVID-19 related treatment cases.
Let The Coding Network help you navigate the documentation guidelines, coding challenges and staffing issues surrounding coding in the age of COVID-19.
