Atherosclerosis is a serious cardiovascular condition wherein the arteries are clogged with fatty substances called plaques, or atheroma. Health practices are required to give immediate patient care as atherosclerosis leads to life-threatening problems like heart attacks or strokes. If the patient is not promptly treated, the condition can worsen. Against this backdrop, it is essential that health practices rely upon thoracic and cardiovascular surgery medical billing services to appropriately assign ICD-10 codes based on accurately prepared clinical documentation. This aids practices in the efficient management of the revenue cycle as well.

Cardiology billing and coding experiences regular amendments of key procedure rules. Medical billing and coding services focus on ensuring accurate codes by staying up to date with new, deleted, and revised cardiology codes. This completely eliminates the chances of claim denial. In addition, the highest degree of specificity is ensured in a cost-effective manner.
