General Surgery Billing
General surgery billing is anything but “basic,” considering the complications involved in diagnosis, procedures, treatment and follow up visits. If your medical facility already bills for general surgery, chances are that you are losing money in mistakes and errors. It’s crucial to minimize this loss.
How Does General Surgery Billing Work?
General surgery billing covers a wide range of procedures which all fall under the same overarching category, and billing for these procedures begins with proper documentation for services provided before, during and after each procedure.
In order for a general surgery practice to be financially successful, special attention must be paid to a number of factors, especially patient information and services. Provider payments are largely determined by these categories, so it is imperative that all information is entered correctly by the billing personnel.
If you’d rather not deal with hiring and training a specialist, you may elect to hire a third-party billing agency such as Billing Advantage. Billing Advantage is responsible for billing insurance providers and patients, as well as everything required in the collections process. This way, you can save valuable time you’d otherwise spend on follow-ups while also providing patients with the topmost level of data security.
General surgery billing with Billing Advantage is a key step in maximizing profit, maintaining facility organization and analyzing charges for the services you render, all the while being HIPAA compliant.
