OSI wishes everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving day 2022!

Thanksgiving is a wonderful day when loved ones get together to share thanks for the blessings in their lives. However, it is also a day for injuries and accidents. Thanksgiving carries all the risks normally associated with the holiday season.

Ranging from turkey deep-frying accidents to food poisoning, fire and burns, and slip and fall injuries, Thanksgiving Day can take people to emergency rooms. Medical coding companies support physicians to report the treatment provided on the medical claims with accurate diagnosis and procedure codes.

Our OSI team has compiled a list of codes that might be of use for practices.
