    AAPC: Back to School
    I have felt the pain of explaining this so many times . . . the UPS guy, the folks at my bank, the tax preparer! You name it. Even in my orientation "class" with my employer . . . none had any clue what HIMS meant, who Coders were or where in the hospital you might locate those sort of people.

    It's amusing for us if nothing else. I always have trouble explaining it on dates . . . I'll take suggestions on how to do that--LOL.

    Tell them if they want their hospital bills to get paid .... you have to make sure the codes are on them correctly and everything is billed correctly...

    Some responses I get, " The bills come from you? "
    in response, " NO... I code them , then they get sent to the insurance company, then I send you the bill."

    lol... haaha actually where I work I do not handle any of the billing, just strictly coding hospital reports, office injection,wounds,lacerations, and multiple other misc reports....

    Thanks everyone for the input... I want to hear more ... tell me... who else says, " And what is a medical coder...???"
