Billing accounts missing revenue codes

Are your coders responsible for entering revenue codes to correspond with CPT codes?

Thank you.

    No charge master referrals are sent back to the ancillary dept. for
    correction.

    Who's responsible for communicating back to the department? Does the HIM coder have to provide any additional information to the Business Office or CDM staff?

    We just hired a chargemaster coordinator to take care of these problems.

    That is not a coding function as rev code should be consistently assigned in the chargemaster

    Thanks,

    That's what I thought. Appreciate the input.
