We hear a lot about outsourcing billing ENT services, especially with all of the changes that have happened to medical billing and coding in recent years. Many practices and clinics have opted to hire a healthcare consulting firm, such as MD Pro Solutions, to take a look at their current policies and procedures to determine whether or not outsourcing billing and ENT services might be beneficial. While some physicians are concerned about jumping into outsourced services, perhaps for fear that they won’t be able to go back to in-house billing, the truth is that outsourced services can be temporary, short-term or long-term, depending on your needs.
Overcoming Technology Issues
In recent years, practices and clinics have had to update outdated computer operating systems, computers and servers, in order to stay compliant with federal guidelines and regulations. Software programs have also been changed to reflect other updates to medical billing and coding. Entire billing departments have had to go back to school to learn how to use these new programs and to gain insight into medical terminology to improve their otolaryngology billing and coding overall.
As new technologies continue to make their way into the medical field, you and your staff will need to remain on top of any changes to medical billing and coding. Financial limitations and time constraints being what they are, many practices are choosing to outsource their otolaryngology billing and coding services to a third-party rather than have to deal with all of the training, support, technology and update issues on a regular basis. So whether you just want part-time outsourcing of billing and ENT services or if you want something long-term, MD Pro Solutions can help.
Saving Time and Money
When you think about it, there are two things that are saved when you decide to outsource your medical billing and coding to a professional healthcare consulting firm like MD Pro Solutions: time and money. You save time in that you and your staff can keep your focus where it belongs, on the patient. You won’t have to waste time working with computers and programs to submit billing, instead you can just let the outsourced services take care of all that otolaryngology billing and coding on your behalf.
Because you are just sending everything off for billing, it is very important that you choose a healthcare consulting firm that specializes in ENT practices and clinics, and that has many years of experience and training in the applicable areas of medical billing and coding. MD Pro Solutions only works with otolaryngology practices and clinics – we do not serve any other medical field. Our team is made up of professionals who have all the skills necessary to turn your billing and coding department around and increase your cash flow to a steady pace.
You also save money when you are outsourcing billing and ENT services, because you are no longer responsible for hiring people specifically to take care of otolaryngology billing and coding. No more costs associated with hiring new billing employees, purchasing computers and software, updating systems and sending staff out for training and support. It actually costs more to keep a medical billing department running than it does for outsourcing billing and ENT services for your otolaryngology practice.
Who Uses Outsourced Billing and Coding?
Now that you have learned a little bit more about these services, does outsourcing billing and ENT services sound right for you and your practice or clinic? Outsourcing medical billing and coding is often a good idea for practices that are busy and don’t have time to spend managing and supporting an administrative and billing team. Our healthcare consulting firm handles all of your billing functions off-site, meaning that you now have more space at your office to see patients, store supplies or put up another physician in an office.
Even small practices can benefit from outsourced otolaryngology billing and coding, as they simply do not have the staff to keep up with the day-to-day hassle of medical billing and coding on top of all the duties required to take care of the patients. When you outsource these services to a healthcare consulting firm like MD Pro Solutions, your claims are submitted accurately and efficiently, which ultimately increases the time frame for receiving payment.
