Accurate coding is incredibly important to get paid for the work you do. We know that it can be confusing to accurately code especially as codes have been changing with ICD-10 updates and new billing guidelines. The nephrology coding team here at NPS has created multiple resources including code downloads, tips and videos to help you navigate the world of nephrology coding.
