Saturday Q and A

Dr. Beth asks:

 

When is it appropriate to do testing to find risk codes? My boss is asking me to do routine Cxrs to find atherosclerosis of the Aorta.

 

Beth

It’s never appropriate to do testing to find risk codes.

Ever.

If you can, find a new employer.  Yours is going to get you into trouble.

No telling what other corners they’re going to cut.
