Kelly was a new coder who had never held an HIM job before. She had just graduated from college and passed her RHIT when she was hired by a local clinic and she was excited to start working. A few weeks later, her manager asked to meet with her. The manager closed the door and told Kelly that she wanted to code the health record for a particular procedure using two codes instead of one so the reimbursement would be higher. The manager then proceeded to divulge information that the clinic was struggling financially so anything extra would help. Kelly got the impression that if she did not comply, they would let her go. She really needed the job and since it was her boss asking, she felt obligated to do as she was told.
