Coding Corner: How to Access Coding Information Provided by SGO
Medical coding and billing are integral to the healthcare revenue cycle, ensuring providers and organizations are reimbursed for services rendered. While often overlooked, getting it right can help you to get reimbursed faster and help you and your organization collect more of your total billed charges. Learning the complexities of the billing and coding processes, however, can be confusing and frustrating. SGO is here to help! Multiple resources are available online through SGO to help you capture maximum revenue for rendered services.
Coding FAQs: This invaluable coding Q&A library is available on the SGO website. Answers to many of your coding questions can be found within this resource (and even some answers to questions you never knew you had!). Read through prior answers based upon the current and usual practices in the field provided by members of the SGO Coding and Reimbursement Subcommittee. This is a great place to start for anyone looking to refine their coding skills! If your question is not answered within the FAQs, submit a new question to firstname.lastname@example.org, and a member of the Subcommittee will respond within the month.
Coding Corner: The Coding Corner is a monthly online column in SGO Issues provided by members of the SGO Coding and Reimbursement Subcommittee that highlights various coding tools. Recent Coding Corners have highlighted billing critical care E/M during the postoperative global period and NCCI edits. Check out our current or prior releases here!
