Coding and reimbursement

Reliable content for accurate results

Coding and reimbursement are dynamic processes. Complex payment systems and regulatory changes—including the ICD-10 transition, HIPAA, Medicare audits and state payment reform—have increased the need for coding accuracy and compliance. At the same time, disruptive technologies—such as natural language processing (NLP), speech recognition and optical character recognition (OCR)—are rapidly changing how coders and other medical records professionals do their work.

Built on 30 years of coding experience

3M combines a deep understanding of industry regulations with innovative technologies to help organizations streamline their coding and reimbursement processes. 3M solutions support defensible documentation and accurate coding to help providers bill for prompt payment.

Trust the ICD-10 leader

As you prepare for ICD-10 coding, you can leverage the know-how of more than 100 credentialed 3M coding experts, plus more than a decade of ICD-10 experience in five countries and with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Who better to trust for your ICD-10 content?
