CodeMap® 01/22/2020: Vocabulary of Reimbursement

CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: January 22, 2020

Editor's Welcome:

As promised, this week's CodeMap® Compliance Briefing will continue our examination of the vocabulary of Medicare coding and reimbursement. In the last CodeMap® Compliance Briefing, we provided definitions and accompanying explanations of procedure and diagnosis codes commonly used in the delivery and billing of clinical laboratory and pathology tests and services. This week, we will take a look at the vocabulary often associated with Medicare reimbursement systems that cover diagnostic providers.

As always, please email us your questions, concerns, and/or comments.
