For example, it is anticipated to add several CPT numbers to the AMA's. Luckily, software updates help prevent billing errors when new codes are added.

STARTEK Health; Oracle Corporation; Verisk Analytics; Aviacode, Inc.; Parexel International Corporation; Maximum Health Information Services; nThrive, Inc. and Medical Record Associates LLC are some of the main businesses offering tools for coders to participate with healthcare suppliers and insurance suppliers.
