Ever felt drained managing medical billing yourself for your facilities? No one can deny Medical billing errors can have a significant impact on your reimbursements. Complexity in generating and collecting revenue is ever-increasing as you scale. Your doctors would be already super busy with patients. What else could be your potential fleet for managing your billing needs?
The one-stop solution would be finding a fleet of niche medical billers. But, how can one arrive at such a standpoint? Medical billers are the ones who process and follow up on timely claims sent to health insurance companies for reimbursement of services rendered by a healthcare provider. The Medical Coder and medical biller may be the same person or may work with each other to ensure invoices are paid properly. To help promote a smooth coding and billing process, the coder checks the patient’s medical record (i.e., the transcription of the doctor’s notes, ordered laboratory tests, requested imaging studies, and other sources) to verify the work that was done. Their main job would be coordinating together to avoid insurance payment denials.
