A Perfect Charge Description Master Isn't Enough

First few Article Sentences

What happens when you cross a perfect Charge Description Master (CDM) with imperfect charging processes in your clinical departments?

You lose money. Often lots of it. Conversely, you may get paid too much and run the risk of having to self-report overpayments or even deal with the OIG. Or, you simply are charging for services you shouldn't even if no additional payment is received from Medicare, which can result in an overstatement of charging.
