Cone Health has utilized Lexicode for many years assisting us with coder vacancies and backlogs in coding. We have been very pleased with the responsiveness of the staff and the quality of the coding staff assigned to our accounts.

I have been doing business with Lexicode for 8 plus years for contracted coding services. They have top quality coders and work hard with the client to ensure the consultant is a fit for the organization. They stand behind their services and if there is ever a problem they do what it takes to ensure you are satisfied and the issue is resolved quickly. I will continue to do business with them as the industry moves towards ICD-10 and am confident they will be able to provide me with whatever support I need.
