The MCT Decision Tree form is a dual-purpose tool to be completed by the MCT and individuals submitting requests to the AUC for consideration of coding issues related to administrative simplification.
This form is a tool used by the Medical Code TAG as part of its decision-making process regarding medical coding issues and for responding to AUC SBAR coding recommendation requests.
It is also a tool to ensure all information germane for consideration of your coding issue(s) is appropriately documented for the MCT review and to assist you in completing the SBAR.
When completed properly, the MCT Decision Tree expedites a thorough review of your SBAR and response from the AUC.
