CodeMap® 02/13/2009: The Terminology of Coding

 

CodeMap® Radiology Briefing: 2/13/2009


Editor's Welcome:

Each year, we dedicate a number of briefings to the terminology of coding, reimbursement, and coverage, so that all our subscribers are familiar with the many unique terms employed by federal health care programs, professional organizations, and providers when discussing program requirements. This week, we present the following list of coding terminology and accompanying explanations as a review of the language associated with coding. In the near future, we will distribute other briefings concerning the language and terminology of reimbursement and coverage. As always, please email us your questions, concerns, and/or comments.

Sincerely,

Gregory Root, Esq.
