Advantages to Outsourcing Medical Billing and Coding
With hospitals continuing to acquire physician practices at a rapid pace, it becomes essential to implement strategies that optimize practice billing and collections. For practices in this position, partnering with an outsourced medical billing and coding service to manage the professional revenue cycle during such a transition is a smart first step toward assimilation.
With limited revenue cycle staff, it’s easy to focus on higher dollar facility billing. Due to the high volume and low value nature of professional billing, an accurate and efficient billing workflow is critical to success.
Without the right specialists and infrastructure in house, you can run the risk of leaving money on the table or spending too much to collect professional fees. Our specialized coders provide quick turnaround and electronically post all physician queries for rapid follow up, keeping delays to a minimum. The system tracks all requests for clarification by physician. Coders use this data to identify specific documentation deficiencies and provide physicians with regular in-service training. Complete and specific documentation not only improves care, it increases your opportunity to collect accurately for services rendered and reduces your liability risk.
