Show Notes

It's auditing season, and nationally recognized coding and documentation authority Terry Fletcher will be reporting on errors she is uncovering in a review of more than 1,000 records. During this episode, she shares her findings in the first of a four-part series on auditing issues in physician documentation. While maintaining that CPT® and ICD-10 coding does become less risky when documentation is done properly, she offers corrective actions one can to take to prevent negative payer audits.
