    AAPC: Back to School
    Trying to get an idea of what other coders do, and what their responsibilities entail. If you are a surgery coder, how many cases are you expected to code per hour, and what are your other duties? Is it strictly coding only?
    For example, I code the surgery, CPT and ICD-9, e-mail the doctor the code and descriptions for approval, and if necessary the explanation why, then need to verify CCI edits, verify certain payor policies for billing, enter the charge, and resolve any edits that are created for that charge(s).
    What are others doing?
    Thank you for your time....
