Hourly Coding Assistance

Engage KZA and code with confidence!

Need help coding that complex surgical case?

Looking for the citation for a coding and documentation rule?

KZA’s nationally recognized coding experts can answer individual coding questions, provide clarity about rules, or review your case coding prior to claim submission.

Your practice establishes an account with KZA and submits questions by email or fax. A consultant provides written answers, scheduling phone time if needed to address or clarify issues. Your team has contact with the consultant for ongoing questions.

From financial systems, management reports, and billing processes, to human resources policies and the use of automation, the Practice Evaluation is the right service for physicians and practice leaders who want an objective assessment and comprehensive set of recommendations for overall practice improvement.

This service is straightforward. You send your questions. One of our coding experts reviews them and schedules a phone consultation to discuss the answers and any related coding and reimbursement issues.

KZA’s Hourly Coding Guidance is the right service for those seeking answers to a few, specific coding and documentation questions. We provide this guidance for the following specialties:
