AAPC Coder is so important to medical coders navigating the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II code set because of all it helps you accomplish.
HCPCS Level II touches all types of coding in many settings thanks to its inclusion of supply, service, drug, ambulance, nuclear medicine media, quality reporting, durable medical equipment, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, pathology and laboratory, glasses and hearing aids, and other codes. This government coding system is updated throughout the year, making it the most dynamic code set.
Because so many coding and billing rules define how the more than 6,000 alphanumeric codes will be used to report claims and the quality of services being performed, it helps to have an electronic tool like AAPC Coder to enable speedy, accurate reimbursement. In addition to allow you to search by keyword, code, or code range, AAPC Coder offers these advantages to medical coders:
