Medical coding is a key step in healthcare revenue cycle management. Medical coders abstract the information from the physician documentation, assign appropriate codes, and create a claim to be paid either by the patient or by the insurers.
In order to accomplish this, the coder checks a variety of sources within the patient’s medical record, (i.e. the transcription of the doctor’s notes, ordered laboratory tests, requested imaging studies and other sources) to verify the work that was done. Then the coder must assign CPT® codes for procedures, ICD-10 codes for diagnosis and HCPCS codes for prosthetics (drugs, cotton, gauze, syringe etc.).
Medical coding is the fastest expanding segment in healthcare revenue cycle with a promising career to look forward to for well-trained coding career aspirants. With recent change from ICD-9 to ICD-10, this is a very opportune time to begin a career in medical coding. US healthcare is poised to cover more people than ever before and medical coding is expected to see robust growth in the forthcoming years.

Opportunity knocks twice!
Ten years back, I joined the Acusis medical transcription training team. Over the years, I have managed performance and created online courses to help both our associates and employees learn and sharpen their skills. When Acusis ventured into medical coding, I was given the responsibility of getting trained and certified, this I completed successfully. I now lead the coding training team that has a 100% success rate and manage a team of in-house coders. Opportunity has knocked twice indeed! I am looking forward to my second decade at Acusis, it promises to be more exciting than the first one!

Supervisor – Medical Coding
I was in sales … and then Acusis happened!
Until a year ago, I was working as an office staff in the sales department. I had very little knowledge of medical coding or opportunities in healthcare. One year down the line, I have successfully completed the Acusis medical coding training and am working at Acusis as a Medical Coder Trainee! At Acusis, I got the chance to practice what I learnt and invaluable exposure to different sections like Emergency department(ED), same day surgery (SDC), office visits, inpatient visits (IP) and ITS charge entry. I am well on my way to be a certified medical coder and am charting my future with Acusis with the certain knowledge that I learn and work with the best in the industry!
Medical Coder – Trainee
Transcriptionist to coder, an easy jump!
After working as a medical transcriptionist for 14 years, I was looking to add to my skillsets and medical coding presented a great opportunity. I chose Acusis and had a smooth sail from then on. The study materials were top notch, with weekly assessments, Q&A webinars and on-the-phone assistance. Trainers guided me all the way through. Thanks to Acusis training, I was able to clear the CPC exam and become a certified coder, truly a dream come true for me! I now work with Acusis and will be going home based soon. A perfect work-life balance! The fact that my husband too works at Acusis is the icing on the cake!
