What is the difference between outpatient and inpatient Coding ?
9 Answer: Outpatient coders focus on assigning CPT , HCPCS Level II, and ICD-10-CM codes. They work in provider offices, outpatient clinics and facility outpatient departments. Outpatient facility coders also work with ambulatory payment classifications (APCs). Inpatient hospital Coding focuses on a different subset of skills, where coders work with ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS. These coders also assign Medicare severity-diagnosis related groups (MS-DRGs) for reimbursement. Outpatient coders usually have more interaction throughout the day and must communicate well with providers; inpatient coders tend to have less interaction throughout the day.
10 3. What is a mid-level provider? Answer: Mid-level providers include physician assistants (PA) and nurse practitioners (NP). Mid-level providers are known also as physician extenders because they extend the work of a physician. 4. Discuss the different parts of Medicare and what each program covers. Answer: ll Medicare Part A helps to cover inpatient hospital care, as well as care provided in skilled nursing facilities, hospice care, and home healthcare. ll Medicare Part B covers two types of services: 1) Medically necessary provider services that are needed to diagnose or treat a Medical condition and that meet accepted standards of Medical practice; and 2) preventive services to prevent illness or detect it at an early stage.
