Medical coding is an important step in the revenue cycle management process. FHRM offers professional CPT, ICD-10 and HCPCS medical coding services to all healthcare verticals. With a core team of highly qualified and certified medical coders, we can guarantee reliable and accurate coding services.
Medical coding is a crucial organizational process that allows healthcare organizations to electronically access and verify information in a swift and convenient manner.
- The first step of the process includes the transfer of patient documentation and files electronically to our remote offshore location for processing. In many cases, patient files will need to be scanned before they can be sent. The files are transferred across in a secure manner to ensure safety and confidentiality.
- Once our team of coders receives the documentation, they will begin organizing them into individual categories depending on the preferences of our clients. Once the documents have been categorized and labeled, our coders will verify the files to see if there are any inaccuracies or mistakes.
- The next step involves assigning specific codes to different documentation. Typically, diagnosis and procedure codes are assigned according to the requirements of the client. Modifiers can also be assigned so that codes can be altered in keeping with insurance carrier regulations and guidelines.
- The final step of the medical coding process involves a thorough verification and audit by our coders. Once our quality control team has approved the coding procedure, the coded charge sheets can be sent for further processing.

Our coding techniques are in accordance with the National Correct Coding Initiatives (NCCI) and Local Coverage Decision and Medical Policies (LCD).
