By utilizing an experienced team of medical billers and coders who are knowledgeable in various specialty medical codes and trends, you can rest assured that things are being handled properly behind the scenes while you and your medical team can take care of patients upfront.
Chances are what first brought you into the healthcare industry was wanting to help others. You wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and give them more quality years. However, as you started your own private medical practice, you probably saw it was filled practice management tasks leaving you with less time with patients and more time behind a desk dealing with insurance and other revenue cycle demands.
Be More Proactive in Your Medical Billing and Coding
According to Healthcare Business & Technology, more than 80% of medical bills contain errors. Medical billing errors are the biggest reason for the disruption of cash flow in a physician practice.
Fortunately, by making sure everyone on your team is on the same page when it comes to documentation (as well as having a strong medical billing and coding team), you can greatly reduce these errors so that cash flow in your medical practice continues to move in the right direction.
No Errors Allowed!
As you well know, most medical billing errors are due to:
- Incorrect patient information, which includes insurance provider information
- Duplicate billing
- Poor documentation
- Unclear claim numbers
- Wrong codes being used
However, by putting the proper training in place and outsourcing your medical billing and coding services, you can ensure that a majority of your claims will not be denied.
When these medical billing and coding errors take place, claims come back denied. Resubmitting a fixed claim denial with the correct information can take weeks for review and approval on the other end. In addition, this puts a delay in not only payment from insurance but also slows down the payment received from the patient.
Medical billing errors add up quickly. Before you know it, your medical practice is starting to lose money rather than gain. However, by utilizing an experienced team of specialized medical billers and coders who are knowledgeable in various medical codes and trends, you can rest assured that things are being handled properly behind the scenes while you and your medical team can take care of patients upfront.
