Answers to Your Questions on Coding

Internists and their patients are likely to encounter problems in dealing with Medicare's myriad of rules and regulations. It is especially important that internists are able to select the procedure code that accurately indicates the service(s) provided and the diagnosis code(s).

In order to accomplish these tasks, internists need to understand both the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) coding systems. It is also essential that internists understand Medicare's billing rules and specific policies in order to minimize the administrative burden faced by their practice and avoid scrutiny from government auditors.
