Code of Ethics for Medical Coding

Protect yourself and your practice with these best practices for ethically difficult situations. You're aware that engaging in improper conduct can result in not only losses to the practice or facility but also in personal liabilities. The stakes are even higher now because regulatory agencies are targeting billers and coders as well as providers in fraud and Stark law cases. Want to make sure your billing and coding practices are in the clear? How will I know? This will be a very exciting topic where we will discuss the basic legal standards and ethical conduct principles that billers and coders must follow. You'll hear common ethical scenarios and learn possible approaches for addressing each. You'll also hear case examples of where billers and coders were held personally responsible -- and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.
