There are many skin conditions and each has its own ICD-10 codes and sub-codes. Your medical coding staff needs to be vigilant when reporting those codes on claims. Dermatologists face many challenges associated with reporting diagnoses such as the specificity and granularity of ICD-10 codes. A medical coding company that specialize in dermatology medical billing and coding can help providers ensure accurate and timely claim submission.

Ensuring proper coding and documentation has become an increasingly important aspect of modern medicine, especially with the implementation of electronic health records (EHR). To ensure proper documentation of conditions treated, dermatologists may require important records of medical history, results of pertinent tests/procedures, as well as signed and dated office visit record/operative report. Professional medical billing outsourcing companies provide dermatology medical billing services by certified coders. Their coders stay up to date with ICD-10 and CPT code changes and guidelines to help physicians file error-free claims for accurate and timely reimbursement.
