Coding Resources

The Minnesota Administrative Uniformity Committee (MN AUC) has established coding specifications per Minnesota Statutes Section 62J.536 and related rules, and published the Minnesota Uniform Companion Guides. AUC Best Practices are community standards intended to reduce variation and encourage further administrative simplification in the healthcare industry. Medica follows these MN AUC guidelines. Minnesota Uniform Companion Guides and related Best Practices are available at the MN AUC website.
