In-Depth Medical Coding Audits
Healthcare audits don’t have to be scary.
A well-planned audit is vital to medical coding optimization and makes reimbursement simpler.
Accurate medical coding and billing are vital to revenue cycle management. Inaccuracies and omissions in the medical record lead to inefficiencies in the health system that negatively impact your organization’s ability to pursue reimbursement from health insurance companies, which frustrates your cash flow. Every health facility should have an experienced coding staff to oversee their health and human service processes and ensure they have the appropriate policies and procedures to deliver care services accurately and efficiently.

Improper medical coding jeopardizes your revenue stream. Without a solid medical coding and billing strategy, you may experience more denied claims from payers. Because a rejected or denied claim can occur for many reasons, it’s essential to tackle quality assurance at a large scale to catch the issue or issues as soon as possible.
Horizon Healthcare RCM’s skilled coders evaluate your medical coding system to eliminate inefficiencies and save you the time and money it would cost to catch an issue, resubmit a claim, and finally receive reimbursement. We help you meet compliance, reduce the chances of future errors, and avoid the regulatory fines that follow improper revenue cycle management.
Health care providers can be selected for a routine medical coding audit by the Department of Health and Human Services, Medicare, or a state licensing agency at any time.
