Job Description for Medical Records Coder

A medical records coder is the person working at a clinic or hospital who utilizes various medical charts and documentation from health care professionals to generate billing codes to be invoiced to patients and insurance companies. While it may sound fairly straightforward, skilled medical coders are a sought-after employee. Coding can be an intricate and difficult thing to do; any inaccuracies may result in an insurer refusing payment or reimbursing too little for what should be received. Coders provide the basic foundation that helps create efficiency in the system to allow medical care providers the financial stability they need to continue operations.
