    Have you started looking at HCC codes, so your insurer can get paid more by Medicare Advantage?  Yet another layer of arcana.

    What I love most about coding is that if you code correctly, you fall "out of the curve" of national norms, where docs customarily undercode.  If you undercode like most docs, you run the risk of being charged with Medicare fraud for coding incorrectly.

    It is up to us now. RIP, Teddy.
