"Code" blog

Technorati is showing another blog linking to me... with a reference to coding in the title.. but it's not CodeBlog or CodeBlueBlog or CodetheWebSocket. It's "Medical Billing and Medical Coding Outsourcing Industry News."

My first (almost heretical) thought: Blogging has gone too far.

My second thought: Actually, kind of interesting. Even to lay readers.

As a student, I know next to nothing about proper coding and billing. I seem to recall that if I don't review 5 of 9 systems, my preceptor can't bill for a Level 4 visit. Something like that. I think in the Emergency Department it's even more stringent, but exactly how is a mystery. I hope they teach us this in residency; in the meantime, I plan to stop by this new blog, now and then.
