Medical Billing Codes

Medical codes are assigned to diagnoses and procedures which help in financial settlement from insurance companies.

Types of Medical Procedure Codes

  • Diagnosis Codes (ICD-9: International Classification of Diseases)
  • Procedure Codes (CPT-4: Current Procedural Terminology)
  • Coding for Inpatient Services (ICD-9)
  • Dental Procedure Codes (CDT: Current Dental Terminology)
  • Other Procedure Codes (HCPCS: Healthcare Procedure Coding System)

Superbill / Patient Encounter Form

Procedural and diagnostic codes, and any modifier codes that may be needed to better describe the medical problem and its treatment, are placed on a patient encounter form or superbill. The patient's chart is then re-filed and the encounter form/superbill is given to a medical billing team.

Use of ICD and CPT Codes

For billing purposes, the use of the ICD codes, when placed with CPT codes, tells the payer the following:

  • Type of service provided
  • Diagnosis
  • Symptoms
  • Complaint
  • Condition or reason for performing the service

This information is essential for accurate, timely and optimized third-party reimbursement.
