Job Description for Outpatient Surgical Coder

Outpatient surgical coders are primarily responsible for reviewing statements and assigning codes using classification systems to ensure that insurance companies are billed correctly for services issued by medical providers. They help facilitate a smooth billing process by checking doctors' notes, tests, images, and patients' medical records, and then assigning codes which represent every step of the patient's experience with the physician to confirm what services were provided. This coding must be completed with a great deal of precision to ensure that the medical provider is reimbursed for all services rendered, and outpatient surgical coders typically process many cases per day in an indoor office setting.
