Codes, Codes And More Codes
When you go to the grocery store and make a purchase, the receipt you receive at the end of your visit is fairly self-explanatory. Two dozen eggs, a carton of milk, three pounds of bananas — each with an itemized cost and totaled up at the bottom. It’s relatively easy to spot an error, such as seeing two cartons of milk on your bill when there is only one carton in your bag.
Compare this to a medical bill you might receive from a doctor or a hospital. A quick glance reveals a document of byzantine complexity resplendent with “test codes” and “CPT codes.” Spotting an error is very different.
