Medical billing involves all work done to receive payment for provider services. A medical biller reviews practitioner’s exam notes to assign proper codes for procedures, diagnosis, and treatments. Biller submits these information to insurances or bills patients directly. Billing is complete for each encounter when provider receives all due payments.
Account Receivable is the money outstanding for services provided by practitioners. Managing account receivable is extremely important for a viable business. The biller’s job is to bring in money for rendered services as quickly as possible and to ensure accuracy of theses payments.
Medical coding involves reviewing medical provider’s encounter notes and assigning proper codes for services and diagnosis. Biller prepares claims and invoices with these codes to submit them to insurances and/or patients for payments.
Account Receivable represents lost income. Best business policy is to keep AR as low as possible. To do that, payments must be brought in as close to the service date as possible. Any action that can be taken presently to avoid income loss, should not be put off till the next day.
Biller is the bridge between physicians and insurance companies. The biller loads pages of documents into few numbers and codes to let insurances know all they need to about an encounter. To convert words into codes, a proficient coder in invaluable to the medical practice.
Billing actually starts at the time of making appointments. If any demographics or insurance information is incorrect, claim will not get processed. Thorough verification is needed before patients come to see the doctor. Referrals cannot be generated after patient’s visit, so if referral is needed, office has to receive it before the visit. Claims will not get paid otherwise. Before any procedures, biller has to contact insurance to be certain if pre-authorization is required. This also cannot be done after the fact.
Speaking directly with prospective billers is a must. Also, have them review any part of your billing and suggest improvements/efficiencies in the process.
