    Default Fee per chart for surgery coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    What are self-employed remote coders currently charging on a per-chart basis for abstract surgery coding? This specialty performs operations which range from routine one-line-item surgeries, to complex multi-procedure surgeries which may have as many as eight CPT codes with multiple diagnoses and modifiers. Please advise; I appreciate your help.

    HI there:

    I have seen reimbursement on a per chart basis of between $3.00 to $5.00 a chart. Some charts may be very involved with multiple procedures and others are very easy to code. So, you more or less even out your time/production based on the chart type.

    Best of Luck
