SAIC is looking to hire a Medical Coder II to support our medical coding efforts at Lackland AFB. The primary duties are to review clinical documentation and assign medical codes for ambulatory surgery, observation, and emergency department facility and/or professional services; however, Medical Coder II personnel may be tasked to assign medical codes for facility and/or professional services for outpatient clinic services.
Minimum 5 years of medical coding and experience in 2 or more medical or surgical specialties within the past 10 years, OR 3 years’ APV coding experience within the last 6 years in a military coding environment.
Minimum of one (1) year of performance in the specialty is required to be qualifying. Multiple specialties encompass different medical specialties (i.e. Family Practice, Pediatrics, Gastroenterology, OB/GYN, etc.) that utilize ICD, E&M, CPT, and HCPCS codes. Ancillary specialties (PT/OT, Radiology, Lab, Nutrition, etc.) that usually do NOT use E&M codes do not count as qualifying experience. Additionally, coding, auditing and training exclusively for specialties such as home health, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation care will not be considered as qualifying experience. Coding experience limited to making codes conform to specific payer requirements for the business office (insurance billing, accounts receivable) is not a qualifying factor.
An associate’s degree in Health Information Management
A university certificate in medical coding
At least 30 semester hours’ university/college credit that includes relevant coursework such as anatomy/physiology, medical terminology, health information management, and/or pharmacology
Selected applicant must do the following before starting, based on government requirements:
