Foot and ankle injuries are common during sports events or other everyday activities. Painful foot and ankle injuries include Achilles tendon rupture, ankle fracture, and Lisfranc injury. While reporting these injuries in claims for reimbursement, it is crucial for medical coders to apply the right ICD-10 codes based on the documentation. Professional medical coding services are now available to help physicians provide the required documentation to payers.
Experienced medical coding companies can help physicians assign the correct codes and submit accurate claims for optimal reimbursement.
