Frequently asked questions about outsourced billing to Healthcare Billing Services, inc.
 



Why should I outsource my billing to Healthcare Billing Services?

The answer is simple, it makes good financial sense. Medical practices are faced with the same rising costs that every other business must contend with taxes, benefits, absenteeism, vacation, sick leave and interrupted production. Healthcare Billing Services handles all your billing operations, allowing you to not only cut costs and improve productivity but, more importantly, to allow you to do what you have spent your life studying to do: focus your attention on caring for your patients instead of worrying if your charges are going out. Healthcare Billing Services takes on that worry so you donít have to.

How does Healthcare Billing Services handle follow up on my accounts receivable?

Healthcare Billing Services takes a proactive and multi-faceted approach addressing your outstanding accounts receivable. We know that sometimes even clean claims will be denied by payers for a variety of reasons. Healthcare Billing Services will review all outgoing claims for accuracy of patient demographics, insurance information, and CPT and ICD-9 codes. We review electronic batch reports daily for accepted batches and individual claim acceptance reports. Healthcare Billing Services will work denials as soon as they come in for faster responses from payers. Healthcare Billing Services will run monthly aging reports for primary, secondary, and tertiary claims still outstanding to make sure that your revenue is at its highest level possible. Healthcare Billing Services will make sure that your money is in your bank account and not sitting on a report.
