CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 11/20/2009
As promised, this week we will continue our discussion of diagnosis coding. As you will remember, last week we reviewed the rules that apply to clinical laboratories. This week, we conclude our discussion with a review of the rules that apply to pathologists. You will note that pathologists are granted more latitude in assigning diagnosis codes because they are physicians able to exercise medical decision-making and judgment. As always, please forward any questions, comments, or suggestions to us via email.
