Surgeons work long and tirelessly to master their specialization, and none of them went to such lengths to spend hours every day dealing with general surgery billing issues. Doctors can spend up to 25% of their time on paperwork, which is an unfortunate trend. Many surgical practices have found that outsourcing medical billing and coding has been a huge relief.
Outsourcing to professional coders and billers increases revenue while releasing the headache of dealing with general surgery medical billing issues daily. Rejected and denied claims can take hours to resolve when the medical staff attempting to resolve them are inexperienced medical billers. In addition to the time spent, the claims may not be resolved, resulting in additional revenue loss.
Medical billing and coding are intricate tasks that are known to cause major headaches in many medical offices. These are just a few of the factors that contribute to the complexity of general surgery billing.
Visiting a doctor and getting a diagnosis is sometimes considered separate from the surgery, but it is sometimes considered part of it for billing purposes. Medical billers must receive training and experience to correctly denote which applies in any given situation.
In general, global surgery packages simplify medical billing by eliminating the requirement to include a comprehensive code for each part of surgery and its related care; moreover, understanding the various packages and their associated coding can be difficult; and because the package covers everything involved in a surgery, denied claims represent large sums of money that will not be paid to the practitioner unless the denial is successfully appealed.
Because there are so many components and participants in surgery, it is common for something to be missed from the bill, resulting in cumulative revenue losses that add up to a significant sum over a year. Underbilling occurs when a practitioner fails to bill for all services rendered, and it is a violation of the law as well as a loss of revenue.
Unlike the staff in a busy medical practice, Medical Coder’s employees only deal with revenue cycle management (RCM), not patient care. This means we can keep up with the latest coding changes and payer billing requirements. Our billers and coders are trained and certified in general surgery billing and coding, as well as a variety of other specialties.
Rapidly filing claims and handling rejections and denials is critical to optimizing your income, and Medical Coder’s services extend far beyond that, to include the full range of RCM, from payer-credentialing through the entire patient cycle, all the way up to bill collection at the end. We also handle annual payback and compliance audits. Our innovative solution to general surgery medical billing and coding includes our custom software, which makes the process easier for your staff while also keeping all coding information in the system up to date.
