PIMS’ Certified Procedural Coders (CPCs) are certified though AAPC and PAHCS. Our coders provide verification services to your practice, and confirm that you have correctly coded your charges PRIOR to claim submission. We take this responsibility seriously to ensure codes are submitted correctly the first time; this vastly improves the time it takes to resolve a claim. We fully understand that implications of inadvertent over-coding and incomplete or inaccurate coding are severe:
- Inadvertent over-coding or under-coding can be misconstrued as fraudulent activity
- Incomplete or inaccurate coding can significantly decrease your revenue stream
PIMS maintains compliance with current American Medical Association (AMA) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) coding guidelines. Each coder applies proper modifier application for maximum reimbursement and stays consistent with National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits. All of PIMS’ coders are audited on a regular basis, ensuring accurate representation of the services performed to maximize charge capture for your practice.
