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.

General Surgery Billing Software

General surgery billing software can handle a number of processes that help your practice and the revenue cycle run more smoothly, including scheduling, organization and – yes – billing. However, a program doesn’t always account for errors, which causes stress and could lose revenue.

Billing Advantage uses a software program called Kareo, one of the top ranked billing software programs for security and reliability. From day one, data exchange is secure and specific to your needs. Kareo offers 24/7 access, and you can submit your patient information to us in whichever manner is most convenient to you. A software program in itself is just a tool, but Billing Advantage specialists understand how to use the Kareo tool to its fullest and are there to answer your questions.

How Much Does General Surgery Billing Service Cost?

Having a third party billing agency can actually increase net revenue. Just be sure that the company you hire understands all facets that go into the general surgery specialty. With Billing Advantage, you can be assured that the agents working for you have ample experience to maintain professional, knowledgeable payer interaction while getting you every dollar you deserve!
