Orthopedic billing is a crucial process to keep a smooth system, minimizing claim denials, and cash flow problems. It’s essentially the financial backbone of the practice. Without it, everything would fall apart. So, what are the most important aspects to keep in mind when billing? Double check patient information, verify insurance coverage, and file claims quickly. Continue reading to learn more about how to streamline the process.
How Do Orthopedic Billing Services Work?
Orthopedic billing begins with proper documentation before, during, and after a patient visit. Special attention must be paid to ensure maximum reimbursement and an accurate end-of-year service cost analysis. Simpler errors like missing or incorrect patient information– even a name or date of birth– could result in a rejected claim. In addition to limiting error, knowing insurer preferences and deadlines can also really help in billing management.
Of course, failure to comply with payers is less detrimental than compliance with HIPAA and state regulation. Properly training your team can help avoid severe fees and penalties. If you have no time to train or find that your billing process is too complex, you can reduce your stress and increase reimbursement with Billing Advantage.
