Effective and streamlined coding

Special attention is given to coding so as to make billing error-free. Orthopedic practices may be required to perform numerous clinical activities: non-surgical orthopedics such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, occupational therapy, podiatry, and kinesiology; surgical orthopedics such as hand surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, total joint reconstruction (arthroplasty), pediatric orthopedics, foot and ankle surgery, spine surgery, musculoskeletal oncology, surgical sports medicine, and orthopedic trauma. Given the high-cost value of these procedures, it is critical to have them accurately coded so as to avoid being denied or underpaid for coding inaccuracy. Our coders, knowledgeable of the entire coding system, can ensure highest coding accuracy.
