Revenue Cycle Coding Strategies has provided specialty medical coding, revenue cycle, and compliance consulting services, as well as educational and training materials to radiation and medical oncology professionals and others in the healthcare industry for over 20 years. RCCS’ key to excellence lies in our extensive team of specialty trained consultants with experience in all aspects of oncology from direct patient care to operational management. Our experts create customized solutions and provide our clients the assistance they need to thrive in the complex and ever-changing healthcare industry.
Our goal is to build a trusted connection with our clients. We strive for long-term client relationships where we can provide not only auditing services and feedback on a recurring basis (quarterly, annually, etc.) but also day-to-day support for providers, clinicians, and/or coders involved in the coding, charge capture, and documentation process. We have many offerings that build out a comprehensive oncology consulting package:
The industry experts at RCCS can ensure radiation and medical oncology charges are accurately captured and compliant with payer guidelines. Our team will work alongside your organization to help reduce denials and maximize reimbursement.
Working with our experts for remote oncology charge capture services allows you to amplify the capabilities of your organization with customized solutions specific to your needs. All services can be provided on a long-term or short-term basis.
Charge capture is the practice of documenting and recording the services provided to the patient and submitting those charges for reimbursement. It is important to ensure charges are captured accurately, as a single error can cost your organization in time and revenue.
Each year the experts at RCCS gather to share their knowledge regarding upcoming coding, regulatory, and compliance guideline updates. The three-day seminar includes a collection of sessions addressing changes in radiation and medical oncology, interventional and diagnostic radiology, and cardiology coding and compliance.
RCCS created several Navigator® Coding Guides to help physician practices, cancer centers, and hospitals submit correct claims for oncology procedures and services. The first section of each Navigator provides background information about:
The remainder of the manuals cover coding guidelines and billing/reimbursement guidelines for procedures that oncologists, nurses, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, physicists, and other qualified health professionals commonly perform. Oncology Navigators include:
Coding for oncology services requires the ability to apply coding concepts to day-to-day procedures. These resources provide clinical examples and scenarios to help apply the coding guidelines to your practice.
We also created the Navigator® for Evaluation and Management for Oncology to assist with understanding the 2021 and 2023 E/M coding changes and updates for outpatient, inpatient, and telehealth services. The first part of this book discusses the types of E/M services for each setting. The second part of the book explains how to select the E/M code that best describes the service and how to ensure the documentation meets the requirements for that code. This book will help the reader understand the complex requirements for E/M coding and documentation.
Our ICD-10-CM Oncology Job Aid is a set of “cheat sheets” that contains relevant neoplasm codes as well as codes for other conditions that often occur in conjunction with that neoplasm for common cancer types including breast, male and female genitalia, brain, lung, and more.
In today’s rapidly changing healthcare environment, the ability to provide your teams with the training they need in a time and place that fits their schedule is priceless! With the online library of courses from Revenue Cycle Coding Strategies®, the industry’s most trusted source of medical specialty coding and compliance education for over two decades, you can easily prepare your team to code any service with confidence and ensure timely reimbursements.
Each course includes lay explanations of clinical terms, code selection and sequencing guidelines, and documentation requirements using real-world scenarios and hands-on exercises to improve comprehension and retention. At the completion of the course, a scored assessment evaluates the learner’s comprehension of the material and allows them to earn CEUs.
The ICD-10-CM for Oncology Curriculum is a collection of four online courses that cover all aspects of diagnosis coding for oncology for coders working in a physician practice or hospital outpatient setting. Participants can hone their skills by coding actual procedure notes and receiving immediate feedback on their code selections. The curriculum also includes printable study guides with anatomic diagrams to assist in the coding process. Courses included are:
RCCS also offers a Radiation Oncology Curriculum which contains:
Each of these oncology courses is also available to be purchased individually, allowing you to customize your education plan based on the needs of your team.
Outside of these curricula, RCCS also offers a standalone course INF1: Infusions and Injections. It is designed to prepare you to assign procedure codes for drugs and drug administration services.
With our Client Resource Center (CRC), you will always have access to the answers you need for complicated coding questions. The CRC platform puts you in direct contact with an industry expert to quickly answer your important questions—usually by the next business day—via the Q&A portal.
You can also access the specific payer policies for your facility’s requirements and geographic location at any time.
The CRC is a subscription-based service where interventional radiologists, practice staff, and coders can ask questions regarding coding, billing, and compliance for interventional radiology procedures and receive real-time responses from our team of experts.
