Career Advice and Question about Hospital Outpatient Physician Coding

  1. Default Career Advice and Question about Hospital Outpatient Physician Coding
    New Call-to-action
    I’ve been coding surgeries at an Ambulatory Surgery Center for 3.5 years and wanted to know the differences between ASC coding and Hospital Outpatient Physician coding. What type of codes do hospital outpatient use? My assumption is E/M codes and one-day procedures similar to an ASC. I'm CPC certified and recently obtained my COC last month. Bottomline, I wanted to have some re-assurance this is a responsible next step for my career.

    Thank you for your time,


    Jack
