The SAMA Coding Department appreciates the fact that doctors are often
faced with challenging or difficult scenarios when it comes to coding, not only
when they are in their practices, but also when getting calls off site, such as
on the golf course or relaxing at home.
In most of these instances they will not know how to bill for the
specific cases in question. So, to assist our doctor members with the basic
upfront knowledge of coding with which they should be armed, we will now be
publishing frequently asked questions about coding in our newsletter, the
Private Practice News. The coding section of the newsletter will cover common
scenarioes and interpretations submitted by our doctors and the correct codes
that should be applied in the specific cases presented.
