If the billing and coding management at your ENT practice isn’t quite as effective as you would like it to be, hiring a medical billing system service like MD Pro Solutions could be the answer. From basic Otolaryngology billing and coding, account management and even training regarding code changes for the upcoming ICD-10 deadline, outsourcing medical billing services can help your practice to stay ahead of the requirements imposed by the CMS and streamline your operations.
Some of the changes that are being made to the payout structure of healthcare insurance due to the Affordable Healthcare Act will mean that more patients will be increasing their out-of-pocket responsibility and have larger co-pay, deductibles and other costs associated with co-insurance policies. Making sure that your office is prepared to collect these payments and that your billing and coding management is able to take on the increased paperwork is just part of the struggle facing Ear Nose and Throat practices today.
Hiring a Pro: Outsourcing Medical Billing Services
Another reason to outsource your Otolaryngology billing and coding is to free up your staff to focus on collecting payments at the front desk. The more payments that you can collect up-front at the time of service, the less you will have to collect from the patient after the services have been performed. Through improvements made to your medical billing system and a greater understanding of the coding changes implemented in the 2015 ICD-10 deadline, you will be able to be better prepared to collect what is due.
When you choose to outsource your billing and coding management to a professional services like MD Pro Solutions, you gain the opportunity to maximize your earning potential, while protecting your practice from billing inaccuracies and fraud. Our team will work with you and your staff to optimize your coding system to ensure that you are getting properly paid for the services you provide to your patient. There are many benefits associated with outsourcing medical billing services for your ENT practice to a company like MD Pro Solutions.
Recent studies have revealed that the percentage of fees that will need to be collected by your ENT practice direct from the patient in the office will rise by approximately eight percent each year, possibly rising even more, as employers continue to offer high-deductible healthcare plans to their employees in an attempt to reduce benefit costs. In fact, another study revealed that as much as 50 percent of all workers in America could be switched to a high-deductible healthcare plan within the next ten years.
