    Does anyone happen to know the going rate per chart for coding and billing for the emergency physicians?

  2. Default Depends
    Coding is usually charged on a per chart basis. Billing is usually charged on a % of collections. Usually the coding is included in the % of billing contracts. These days ED billing contracts are in the 6-9% of collections range. Coding can really vary. I charged 2.25 per chart. But prices have been driven down by off shoring of coding. But domestic I think is still 2-3.00 per chart for physician coding. Maybe 3-5.00 gor facility. Way less if sent to India.
