Coding system and reimbursement methodologies for health care services
Weekly tasks or assignments (Individual or Group Projects) will be due by Monday and late submissions will be assigned a late penalty in accordance with the late penalty policy found in the syllabus. NOTE: All submission posting times are based on midnight Central Time.
Understanding the role that coding information plays in health care organizations for claim generation is crucial. The process begins with the collection of information about the patient, the services provided, and the data from the encounter (including medical documentation and charge capture).
List the steps involved in that process, and write a brief explanation for each step.
Note: Be sure to include a description of the chargemaster or charge description master (CDM) and the revenue cycle management process.
