Hello -

We are looking for any response to this inquiry, local (SC) or national.

Does the providers within your offices code out any of their visits themselves or is a certified coder doing everything after the visit is documented by the provider?

Thank you everyone for your response to this inquiry.

The providers in my clinic code their own visits and procedures, and I review the chart notes and then discuss with the provider if I think the coding may be inaccurate. I would then encourage them to correct/supplement the documentation to support the codes they chose.
