Vacation Coverage, Medical Leave Coverage,
and Backlog Coding
On occasion, practices find themselves without a coder due to vacations, illness/medical issues, or turnover. Their absence can create a backlog resulting in peaks and valleys in collections, claims being denied since they pass the timely filing due date, excessive overtime expenses, staff burnout and fatigue-related errors.
The Coding Network can help prevent or diminish your backlog and/or temporarily fill-in for your coder while they are out of the office. Since we do not require any minimums, The Coding Network can supplement your current coding efforts whenever the need arises. All you need to do is have a contract in place with us and when a coder is out or backlog arises (or better yet, before a backlog occurs), we can step in and help clear up your queue.
