Medical billing is hard in any discipline, but allergy and immunology medical billing services must deal with specific elements that are more intricate than in most specialties. As a result, outsourcing billing and coding to specialists who specialize in revenue cycle management (RCM) has become a popular solution.
Thousands of doctors have retired early or left private practice to join a large institution because medical billing paperwork became such a strain on their resources that staying in business became impractical. Medical Coder is pleased to provide the needed assistance while also increasing revenue for our clients.
Doctors and medical personnel are not only more successful but also happier when they are not required to file claims or deal with denials and rejections. It is far preferable to let them focus on patient care while leaving billing and coding to a business like Medical Coder. Outsourcing has benefited practises in numerous sectors, but it is especially advantageous in allergy and immunology.
Payers have cut costs in immunology and allergy by reducing reimbursement amounts, but physicians are dealing with rising costs for supplies and medications. Because of the low-profit margins, it is critical that every service be reimbursed, which necessitates error-free claims.
Each insurer has different policies regarding what it covers and how much it will pay, and Medicare operates under a different set of rules than private insurers. Because there are so many variables, it is difficult for medical office staff to properly bill. Furthermore, reimbursement differs for allergy testing and shots, as well as build-up and maintenance dosages, so billers must understand the distinction and know how to correctly code for each.
Immunology/allergy treatments frequently necessitate follow-up visits with the physician on the same day, which must be carefully coded with modifiers to indicate this, or the insurer will probably consider it a copy bill and only pay one of them. Most claim items are assigned a time limit, but treatments such as rush immunotherapy and drug desensitization may be billed on an hourly basis. Only expert billers are most likely to be aware of and properly document this exception.
We understand the revenue cycle from start to finish and will tailor our services to your specific requirements. Our billers are medical billing certified and trained in HIPPA best practices, so you can rest assured that your patient data is secure. Furthermore, they have prior experience with allergy and immunology billing and know what to look for to ensure that claims are complete and correct.
