Our coders at ACRMC are all certified through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) or the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and follow the coding guidelines set by the American Hospital Association (AHA), AHIMA, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and National Center for Health Statistics. We pride ourselves in the highest standards of coding ethics.

We code from the documentation provided in the chart, and would never deviate from this standard protocol in any way. During this difficult period of time in our country’s history, we pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity in all things we do within our department. Further, we have not had nor coded any COVID-19 deaths at our facility at this time.
