Physician Documentation Coding Auditor
CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic
800 E. Dawson
Tyler, TX 75701
The Physician Documentation/Coding Auditor will ensure coding and billing compliance through ongoing audits and education of physicians, staff, and clinic sites. Under general supervision, using a combination of regulatory, coding, documentation and billing knowledge, the Physician Documentation/Coding Auditor will complete scheduled audits of assigned providers at designated intervals.
The auditor will also monitor and aid in improving the quality of documentation related to the requirements to bill for services provided. The Physician Documentation/Coding Auditor will compare clinical and financial records to ensure that the documentation provided supports the patient charges listed. The audit will flow to claims and the auditor will ensure that the claim for services was billed to the payer correctly. If the PDCA detects errors, the Auditor will present corrected information to Billing Compliance and/or the affected department(s) as instructed, and work collaboratively to maintain accurate and appropriate coding and billing.
