In my opinion, and maybe not popular, but if there is a less than 25% accuracy rate then it is the coding departments fault as well. Even though the physician marks(assigns) the codes it is the responsibility of the coder to read ALL documentation and verify the accuracy of the codes BEFORE assigning codes to a claim. To do anything less means you are not coding you are performing data entry. If you find on post audit that incorrect codes were submitted and paid resulting in an overpayment then you have a requirement to refund the monies to the carrier regarless of the amount.
