Good Morning
My organization is putting together a proposal to add a dedicated position to audit physician coding for our employed and contracted physicians. I would like some in put regarding the ratio pf physicians to a compliance coder. For example for every 100 Doctors you would employ. You would have 1.5 FTE to audit their coding. These are physicians of all types.
Thank You

How many FTE coders for 100 Dr's

Hi-
We over 100+ physicians and employ 10 full time coders. However, we split office billing and hospital billing. We have 4 full time office coders and 5 full time hospital coders and 1 coder that does half office and half hospital billing. GOOD LUCK! We also have a compliance department that handles the audit, I believe there is 6 of them.
