Medical Coders Day 2022

May 23rd is National Medical Coders Day!

What Is a Medical Coder? Medical coders update patient records with standardized information needed for data management and billing purposes. Every time a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider performs a service, a code needs to be assigned to each diagnosis and procedure. The specific codes assigned determine how the medical office bills the insurance company for the patient’s visit.
