Inpatient Coding Reviews

Inpatient Coding Reviews

Our coding specialists will validate the ICD-9-CM/ICD-10-CM code sequencing of the principal diagnosis and the secondary diagnoses and procedures for the assignment of the MS-DRG. A thorough review of the medical record documentation against the hospital final billed claim will confirm reporting accuracy. This review also addresses validating the coder assigned present on admission (POA) indicators and discharge status (disposition).
