Attorneys and legal staff regularly outsource to us for transcription of Hearings, Briefs, Pleadings, Letters, Memorandums, et cetera. Many of our clients take comfort in the fact that transcriptionists outside their state can be utilized for greatly enhanced confidentiality.

Coding Services
Augusta Coding and Transcription now offers a 2-in-one coding and transcription service. Our certified coders will retrieve your records after transcription is complete and code the service(s) provided, both CPT and ICD-9. This will enhance productivity of your in-house coders and billing department. The coded and transcribed report can be used to verify correct codes billed by your billing department or your billing department can directly bill by the coded transcribed report. This method can save your office staff valuable time, enhance productivity, reduce fines and/or suspensions, decrease costly billing errors and potentially increase revenue income. Our coding service is ideal for multi-specialty practices having difficulty finding good, certified medical coders.
Outpatient CPT Coding Audit
Most physician offices experience striking improvements in their reimbursements with better coding. However, staff turnover, annual ICD-9-CM changes, annual CPT code changes and frequent rule revisions from CM (formerly HCA) make it impossible for many physician offices to keep up.

Let Augusta Coding and Transcription, Inc., help your office keep up the pace! We now offer Medical Coding and Support.
CPT Coding Audits help you:
Examine appropriate use of CPT procedure code assignment
Facilitate appropriate payment
Reduce denials/suspensions
Reduce audit liability.
Your CPT Coding audit will include:
Review of a targeted sample of records
Calculation of the average increase per case
Identification of cases for adjustments
The goal of the physician office billing review is to evaluate your coding and billing practices and evalute policies and procedures used in billing professional charges assuring that claims meet federal and state regulations.

Our Certified Coder from Augusta Coding and Transcription, Inc., will interview office staff involved in the billing process and review a representative sample of claims submitted to government payers. The billing is reviewed with the medical record to assure that the documentation supports the ICD-9 diagnosis code and that the appropriate Evaluation and Management (E&M) code for any services are being used and Modifiers, if indicated, are cross referenced. The bill is further reviewed to assure that the charges are bundled/unbundled per CPT and governmental regulations. A report is submitted which discusses the findings of the review and notes any concerns along with providing recommendations to assist with billing in compliance with government regulations.

An on-site summary conference discussing the findings with staff following submission of the report is conducted. This conference includes education relating to any issues identified in the audit.
