Medical Billers and Coders: An Integral Part of the Healthcare Industry

Health Insurance Companies Process 1 in 5 Claims Wrong

The Behind-The-Scenes Medical Professionals

Doctors and nurses often receive most of the attention in healthcare, but behind the scenes, many other professionals work hard to provide the best patient experience possible. Medical billers and coders are particularly important, and yet, few people understand the crucial role they play.

My friend Monica over at Carrington College made an infographic that I found very interesting and wanted to share with you all. She points out that medical billers and coders do their part to ensure that physicians and other healthcare professionals can pay attention to providing care rather than stress about insurance payments.

Simplifying the Payment Process

Without medical billers and coders, the payment process would be far less efficient. Their efforts allow doctors to concentrate on treatment and patients to focus on recovery.

Medical billers and coders make payments easier to understand. Coders translate each diagnosis and treatment to one of over 140,000 ICD-10 codes. Billers then use this code to create an appropriate medical bill.

Billers and coders ought to receive a lot of credit for making the healthcare system work. They are an integral part of the healthcare industry, and their services help both doctors and patients.

So are you a coder or a medical biller? I would love to know.  Leave me a comment below.
