Tax code

In Reply to: Tax question for all you ICs - hypertyper

In Ohio, since there is no actual code that reflects transcription, we use 99999. Worked for me with no problems.

Used to code

Coding is a game where the rules constantly change and they won't tell you what they are - but will gladly penalize you and your employer because you "should have known" all the rules they won't tell you.  They actually have codes that are "blacked out" - in other words, they know what the right code is that will cause them to pay for a procedure, but its a secret beknownst only to them.  "They" being the federal government - they say "ignorance of the rules is no excuse" but won't tell the rules.  You fly by the seat of your pants.  You can attend seminars all year long but still not know if you're doing it right.  You live in constant fear of a Medicare audit where they will find the wrong code and accuse you and your employer of fraud, fine/jail the both of you, and pull the doctor's license. In transcription - the blame for errors ultimately goes to the doctor.  In coding - the blame gets spread around.  If that sounds like fun, go ahead.


Where do you put the code?

code key
The code key that goes with the software is probably triggered to tell it that it's already been installed once.  It's an anit-piracy device.  What you may need to do is call the software support line for the software and explain the situation.  They may be able to give you a new code key for the installation.
Code of Conduct
This thing is REALLY for the ones that got all the lawsuits started, now WE have to suffer. At least we get paid for probably the most boring hour on earth!!
Also, see what diagnosis code
they used to bill.  Might have been billed as a screening and that's sometimes a no-no as far as getting things paid.  Obviously, you can't lie, but see if she had any symptoms at all that might justify the test.

Anyone know what this is? 


JUMP code
I need to insert a "code" so I can jump from one place to another in document. using WORD 2002 XP. I had a macro set up for this and lost it and have tried to make another one, but when I try to do any macro Microsoft Visual Basics pops up. It will not allow me to assign anything to the keyboard...ANYONE? TIA

MT or Code question
I am an experienced MT/now quality auditor---I've taken coding courses and am considering going for certification but for now it's on the back burner.  The experience I have as an MT is invaluable as a coder---if you don't know medical terminology, you will learn it in a legitimate coding course but it sure was a benefit to me in the coding course I took to have the MT background.  Coding is harder to get into than transcribing (my experience anyway) because you need to apprentice (in order to get your certification) and then usually start at a entry level even not as a coder at a low rate of pay when you are first working as a coder.  I know the earning potential is enormous as a coder though.  This is not to say all coding jobs start out this way, just what I've found.  I have a couple of friends from my class who are coding, but it is really hard and takes a lot of knowlege but I imagine would be rewarding once you get established.

I used to code in house
I wasn't cut out to be a coder, but I did fine at the coding itself.  I coded and billed radiology.  I had a problem dealing with the people end of the business - dealing with patients who called screaming that their insurance didn't pay because I didn't do "my job" right; dealing with ordering physicians who gave routinely unpayable reasons for tests and thought "radiologists make enough as it is because they don't have to see the patient's personally".  I couldn't handle being caught in the middle, and the stress wasn't worth it.  I find transcribing much less stressful because I no longer hear screaming patients or have to beg for a payable ordering diagnosis.
ESL is not code for bigotry. It is used in my SM
community of SoFla. There are ESOL classes in school and English classes for ESL adults. These are listed as ESL! There are references to ESL all over and there is nothing bigotted about it. It is not a "code" for bigotry, at least in SoFla. I don't know about the rest of the US.

I have already stated, I don't mind ESL doctors. As someone else pointed out, they know they have an accent and tend to speak very clearly.

If you want to see the jump code, turn on the

C-phone access code ?? sm - HELP!
I bought a C-phone from E-bay.  When dialing a number, I get a message telling me I must use the "access code."  I am sure this is something that was put in there by the previous owner(s).  Can someone tell me how to "erase" this directive or clear the machine?

Try #*11. That's the code I've used with every company. sm

That was # * 11, pound, star, 11 just in case you couldn't see it.


Good luck!

C-phone program code
Does anyone know if there is a code used that will allow you to save your already programmed keys whereas you do not have to re-program the keys every time you unplug your Dictaphone
You probably need your company's permission/log-in code, etc. to do this. nm

Time Code Stamps
Hello All,

For any of you who have had to time code transcripts:

Would it be helpful to have an MS Word application that prints an automated time code stamp? I ask because a programmer friend of mine and I have discussed writing a program to do this, and I'm wondering how useful it would be to you all.

This is how we envision it working: First, you complete the transcript. Then you open the Time Code Stamper in Word, and start going through the audio again. Suppose you want to put a stamp every 15 seconds. When you press a certain keystroke combination (ctrl-shift-f1, for instance), the program inserts a time code stamp in the format you specify. Then you fast-forward the audio to the next 30-second increment. When you find the correct place in the transcript for the next time stamp, you put you cursor on the spot and execute the Time Code Stamper program again. It will automatically increment the time by 30 seconds (or whatever increment you specify) and print the stamp. If you make a mistake, you can click on the menu and manually set the correct time.

I tested this out once with a very simple version of the program, placing time codes in a transcript every 15 seconds, and I was able to complete the whole document in about a quarter of the audio time (e.g., 5 minutes to complete 20 minutes of audio). The few errors I made I was able to fix very quickly and move on.

Like I said, we havenít actually built a full version of this program yet, I just wanted to get some feedback from the people who could actually be using it. Weíre thinking of selling it for $29 or so. What do you think?

If this particular program would not be helpful for you, do you all have any requests for Word formatting programs that would help you? Weíre trying to think of different widgets that would be of use to transcriptionists.

Thanks,

Dan Edge

C-Phone Security Code??

I purchased a C-phone from someone and now I cannot program any keys because it is asking for "security number"  before allowing you to program any keys. Anyone have any idea if there is a universal unlock code?

Authentication code to post your message.
Due to the influx of bot spammers posting on the MTStars website, we have now added a module to the discussion forums that requires a 1-4 character authentication code before a message can be posted.

 

Because this code must be humanly entered, bots cannot post spam as they cannot get past the code entry requirement. 

 

We apologize for any inconvenience, but we believe this will help to make the MTStars site less apt to a large of amount of spam.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email.

Jump code used in Word 2000
I'm hoping someone can help ~ I just started a new job where I'm working in Word 2000. My question is this ~ There are a lot of normals that I'm using for doctors and I need to figure out how to jump around the report (sets of ??) without having to use the mouse constantly. I've worked in a few different programs before, but never Word. Chartscript used, I believe, Ctr J to jump around. Anyway, I do think there is a way I can do this, macro maybe? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
I have a doc who dictates the entire address, but not the zip code. SM
or the referring physician (throughout a three state area), and says, "Dr. Smith" and then gives the address. I still have to go online to find the doctors first name. Very annoying.
You might have a "bold" code in your document at that point sm

That you are not aware of. That's one of my pet peeves about Word - their "reveal formatting" is not nearly as thorough or precise as the one in WordPerfect. In WordPerfect, you would be able to see the bold code and eliminate it easily.


Next time you start a numbered list, look at the document before you start the list and see if there might be any bold codes that you will run into while you're doing the list. If you can figure out where it is, you might eliminate the problem entirely.


802.11 refers to IEEE code section.
These are the people who write the specs for how wireless works. 802.11a is the first generation, 802.11b, second, etc. The latest, I believe, is now 802.11g. While speed is important, and improved in the newer generations, it's also important to know what protocol the router uses as some types are not compatible. Your best bet would be to read up on the subject online by trying a site like www.howstuffworks.com. Do a search for wireless networking.
that's pretty funny considering we don't even have our own identity code with IRS! nm

Here is the code. Just copy and paste it into your shorthand. (sm)
{@KEY BkSp}-year-old

I use "yo" for that. Also have "mo" for month-old since I do pediatrics.

The @KEY specifies ShortHand to make that keystroke within the code. It basically tells Shorthand to do a backspace after you use that shortcut.

Another example is bold.

{@KEY Ctrl+B}{@NOSPACE}

My shortcut for bold is "bo" and then I just continue typing. That way I don't lose my rhythm.

WORD 2007 HELP WITH "JUMP CODE" - sm
I have researched on this board for help with inserting a "jump code" in a template, but all the examples do not seem to work or I cannot find the sections needed in Word to set this up in Word 2007...this is not a trial version.  Any computer savvy person out there to help?  I have tried with the Ctl +F9, but although the brackets show up in the document, hitting F11 doesn't move the cursor back up to the place of insertion.  The other tip I found suggested going to View - toolbar - check forms, etc, but I cannot even find that in 2007 - I found View, but that's it.  Nothing near close to what the rest of the tip says.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have lots of normals that I would like to have this "jump code" in.....TIA.
If memory serves, the code for the headset key is *11. So... SM

you would press the program button twice (there are 3 buttons directly beneath the LED screen on your phone and the program button is the one at the far right, I believe) and then you would press the button you want to repogram (the headset button) and then press *11 and enter.


Now, don't give me a hard time if I'm wrong.   It has been years since I've had to reprogram a C-phone, but I used to have to do regularly when I worked in the hospital as a supervisor.

What is the code to unlock "Program Locked" C-phone from Dictaphone

Setting up macro in Word for jump code...inside
(you can actually use any key on the keyboard, I actually use F3 because it doesn't seem to interfere with anyting.)

I call it a "jumpcode" and what you need to do is create a Word macro for it. For example, I use (Alt + /) to insert blanks in a document. Now if I want to jump to the blanks I use (Alt + >). In reading your question, it sounds as if the symbol you want to "jump" to is already in the document, so you would just have to define the jumpcode for that prompt.

So, first create your macro.
1. Tools - Macro - Record New Macro.
2. Name your macro (ex. Jumpcode) or use the default Macro name
3. Assign macro to Keyboard.
4. Pick what keys to assign the keyboard macro - Example Alt + J (NOTE - SOME KEYS ARE ALREADY DEFAULT ASSIGNED BY WORD. SYSTEM WILL ALERT YOU TO THIS FACT! YOU WOULD THEN PICK ANOTHER KEY OR THE DEFAULT WORD KEY WILL BE OVERWRITTEN)
5. Select Assign - Close
6. You will then notice the "record macro function" come on (symbol of a little tape cassette will appear on screen). All key strokes from this point will be recorded until you turn off record macro function.
7. Recording your macro. Since the jumpcode you want to jump to is the >" you should set it up this way:
A. Ctrl + F (the find function). This will pull up the "Find and Replace" box.
B. Type in the prompt you want to find which would be >"
C. Hit "Find Next"
D. Then close "Find and Replace" box.
E. Stop recording. (Hit the square in the record macro icon)

Now when you hit "Alt + J" system should jump to the >" prompt in your document
