I am employed as a Medical Assistant at a hospital based outpt. wound center and am required to enter facility charges and codes from a chargemaster into the computer to go to the hospital. The Medical Records Department will not do our coding because they do not have access to our Medical Records;However, as a Medical Assistant I am not given the time or opportunity to check the Medical Record to verify charges and codes. I am sitting for the coding certification exam in June and am concerned about any possible ramifications in the event of inaccurate entries. Are there any that might occur?
