With each New Year, we have the opportunity to improve. Although most resolutions are personal, medical practices can also take advantage of this convention and update their coding resources. Without up-to-date and useful resources, errors in coding and billing can cost a practice time spent correcting errors and unrecoverable loss of payment. Here are a few coding resources that might just help in your resolution to update your practice.
As you review and update coding resources, visit the AAP Pediatric Coding Newsletter™ Coding Resources page at http://coding.aap.org. There are many other resources from the American Academy of Pediatrics accessible from www.aap.org/coding, including coding fact sheets, documentation templates, and current valuation and payment under the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale.
