About Us

CodingAnswers.com got its start as the Coding Answer Book, which for more than 20 years served the bookshelf go-to reference for savvy coders and billers. Now, in its easier-to-reference online format, our mission remains the same:

  1. To make it easier for medical office revenue staff to stay on top of code changes by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the American Medical Association, and the World Health Organization;
  2. improve claims filing productivity by providing a single-source for hundreds of different rules source documents scattered across various federal and private payer organizations; and
  3. offer easy-to-understand interpretation of coding coverage rules and intent to lessen a providers risk of inappropriately applying codes in a variety of billing scenarios.

Our team of healthcare journalists and monitor coding activity daily. When a new coding convention, code description, code number, or coding/billing rule takes effect, the respective CodingAnswers topical library gets an instant update. You NEVER RISK being out of date, nor do CodingAnswers.com subscribers have to take a single action to ensure they’ve got the latest information on hand, at the ready.

At DecisionHealth, the only person we work for is you, the provider. We are not affiliated with any special interest groups, nor owned by any entity with a conflicting stake in the healthcare industry. Since 1986, we’ve been independently watching out for the financial health of healthcare providers, and we’ll be there for you and your peers for the next 25 years.
