I am not sure what your process is. Coders should always read the documentation and code only what is documented regardless of the codes submitted by the provider. A coder should have access to the CCI edits to be able to identify component of comprehensive and mutually exclusive parings and should then appropriately apply the modifiers that are needed or drop codes if necessary. In otherwords, a coder should submit to the biller a clean claim. Yes that I do feel is correct. To check with the payers regarding coverage issues? no that is not a coder responsibility. I am not sure what you mean by searching a list of websites, I would purchase either encoder pro or code correct or some eqyuivalent web based system that allows a coder to quickly and easily obtain the CCI edits as well as other relavent coding information.
