In positions I have held where I was not responsible for the posting, I would ask to be notified of any denials due to coding were on the EOB. I also went one step further and would periodically review all EOBs, looking for large adjustments or zero payments.
But also remember that just because a code is denied does not mean it was coded incorrectly. Some payors have rules no coder seems to understand!
When I am in doubt of correct coding, I will ask someone I have confidence in as a coder, or post the question on a trusted website forum, such as AAPC or HCPro. I would not necessarily take the advice given, but it would give you other options to research to help answer your questions.
