Front Office Medical Assistants: Billing and Coding

4 Valuable Time Management Tips for Medical Assistants | Charter College

First of all, most medical offices consist of two distinct workplace areas: the front office and the back office. Front office medical assistants perform administrative and clerical duties. They tend to carry out tasks related to reception, medical records, files, insurance billing, computerized accounting, answering telephones and emails, and appointment scheduling, among the array of duties and responsibilities. Back office medical assistants perform hands-on patient care.

Front office medical assistants specifically work in the front office section of the clinic or medical office. They are often entrusted with the responsibility of doing medical billing and coding. The medical bill is generated based on the diagnoses and procedures that had been rendered during the patient’s visit to the clinic, doctors office, hospital or other type of healthcare agency. If the patient is insured, a claim is sent to the patient’s medical insurance company for reimbursement.

Each medical diagnosis has an ICD code. ICD stands for the International Classification of Diseases. ICD-10 is a clinical system that went into effect in late 2015 to replace the ICD-9. The difference between the ICD-9 and the ICD-10 is the reality that ICD-10 codes offer substantially more classification options when compared with those found in the ICD-9. Without further ado, some common ICD-10 codes and the corresponding diagnoses are listed below:

  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus without complications: E11.9
  • Alzheimer’s disease, unspecified: G30.9
  • Benign essential hypertension: I10
  • Urinary tract infection, site not specified: N39.0
  • Pregnancy care for patient with recurrent pregnancy loss: O26.2
  • Morbid (severe) obesity due to excess calories: E66.01
  • Underweight: R63.6
  • Major depressive disorder, recurrent, mild: F33.0
  • Other specified anxiety disorders: F41.8 
  • Encounter for routine child health examination: Z00.12
  • Encounter for routine gynecological examination: Z01.41

CNA/Nursing Assistant Scope of Practice

Screenshot 2020-12-17 at 10.30.07 AM

Nursing assistants must possess a firm understanding of their scope of practice to deliver the safest care. In the simplest terms, scope of practice means staying in one’s lane without deviation, or sticking to the tasks one is permitted to do. In more official phrasing, scope of practice dictates the tasks and workplace duties that a trained healthcare worker is deemed competent to perform and allowed to engage in, under the terms of his or her professional license and/or certification.

Why is the concept of scope of practice something that nursing assistants must know about? Scope of practice legally determines what types of procedures nursing assistants can and cannot do. Scope of practice is the fine line between what nursing assistants are permitted to do versus the tasks that are not legally permissible for them to do. Each state’s nurse aide certification registry and/or board of nursing has documentation with activities that fall into the scope of practice for nursing assistants. 

Therefore, nursing assistants who complete tasks that are not included on the documented range of acceptable activities may be held liable for poor outcomes to patients and/or lose their state-issued certifications. This is because they did not follow the predetermined scope of practice for the state in which they work. In other words, nursing assistants who do not stay in their lane and work outside their scope may suffer the consequences of their decisions.

A nursing assistant helps the nursing team within a limited scope of care duties and responsibilities under a licensed nurse’s supervision (PracticalNursing.Org, 2020). As a multifaceted allied healthcare worker, a nursing assistant is allowed to perform a variety of tasks and duties. Most nursing assistants secure employment in positions that involve direct care tasks at the patient’s bedside. A nursing assistant’s workplace responsibilities may include (PracticalNursing.Org):

  • Answering patient call lights
  • Serving and feeding patient meals
  • Transporting patients
  • Making beds
  • Cleaning up patient rooms
  • Reporting changes in condition to nursing staff
  • Assisting with elimination, also known as toileting
  • Turning and positioning patients
  • Assisting with ambulation (walking)
  • Measuring and recording vital signs
  • Activities of daily living such as bathing and dressing
  • Following the patient’s predetermined care plan
  • Performing personal care such as foot care and back rubs

International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking: June 26th

Screenshot 2019-06-23 at 5.26.09 PM

The International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, a global observance that takes place on the 26th day of June during each year, was started back in 1987. The overall goal of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is to increase awareness regarding the societal ills and other problems that often arise due to the use, trafficking and sales of illegal substances.

According to the International Narcotics Control Board (2018), the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is an annual reminder of the significance of worldwide efforts to prevent and alleviate suffering caused by drug abuse and  trafficking as well as the importance of assuring access to controlled substances for medical and scientific use.

Drug abuse and trafficking can be terribly destructive to individuals, families, schools, communities and societies as a whole. Drug use disorders are a major public health problem. Drug addiction is a dreadful disease process that destroys peoples’ health statuses, destabilizes families, places enormous burdens on the healthcare system and causes undue strains on the limited resources of various social services agencies.

Moreover, drug abuse and trafficking can be extremely detrimental to the safety and security of people, including those who become innocent victims that get caught in the crossfire. Drug trafficking, once seen primarily as a social and criminal issue, has been transformed in recent years into a massive threat to the health and safety of people and regions (United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe, 2019).

Allied healthcare workers can have a beneficial influence on children and young people by providing education on the risks of illegal drug use, identifying risk factors, noticing risky behaviors and intervening in a timely manner to help prevent and/or treat substance abuse issues before they burgeon into more serious problems. Thus, people who work in the healthcare system are integral to the fight against illicit drugs.
