Professional Cardiology Coding Services that Ensure Revenue Integrity

The secret to efficient cardiology coding services lies in the experience and expertise of the medical coding staff. An inaccurate medical billing and coding service can severely impact a cardiology practice’s finances and make operations unsustainable.

A 2022 study by the Medical Group Management Association, reported that, “cardiology practices lose an average of 4.2% of their annual revenue, amounting to an estimated loss of $1.6 billion/year due to inaccurate coding services.”

Common Factors that Contribute to Errors in Cardiology Coding:

Medical coding is an exact practice, demanding a very high degree of accuracy and precision. More often than not, healthcare practices are seen struggling with coding a claim correctly, thereby leading to denials and rejections. Most of these struggles arise from a number of aspects such as,

  • Lack of understanding of the medical decision-making process
  • Lack of awareness of CPT / ICD-10 code updates
  • Failure to update charge sheets
  • Frequent changes in coding guidelines
  • Manual errors
  • Staff turnover

To ensure all provided medical services are reimbursed, it is important to have a fluid communication channel between the clinical staff that handles charge capture and the cardiology coding department that assigns medical codes. This communication channel helps staff avoid providing services that can’t be coded due to various reasons.

Our cardiology medical coding teams are expert at spotting errors in charge capture and identifying CDM disparities that help improve accuracy of claims and reduce claim denials.
