    Default Surgery Coding Accuracy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any idea of industry standard acceptable accuracy (say, 95% or 98%) for Surgery coding?

    With my facility it's 98%, but I have also heard different elsewhere

    Great, that's the benchmark we are using - is there any benchmark from any medical society or any other opinion?
