The Role Of A Medical Biller and Coder in Healthcare
A medical biller and coder plays a very important role in the healthcare industry, as they are part of a health care team responsible for a patient’s care. Although they might not work directly with a patient, they are just as responsible for ensuring that they receive the proper care and attention needed. A medical biller and coder checks to make sure that a patient’s medical data is both organized and accurate, as well as protected for confidentiality purposes. After a patient’s medical data is recorded, a medical biller and coder uses classification software to assign clinical codes so that the correct diagnosis and procedure codes are implemented. This data is saved in a patient’s chart for future analysis and can then be submitted to insurance companies for billing. The coded data is also used for other purposes, such as population health statistics1, as well as to maintain a record of the patient's treatments.
