How Outsourcing Medical Billing Can Improve Patient Services

The responsibilities and daily requirements for the operation of a busy plastic surgery practice or clinic are many. Keeping up with the day-to-day tasks that are necessary to provide professional plastic surgery patient services can be next to impossible, especially for new or expanding offices. Shortages of qualified medical staff and patient growth can all impact the way that you process claims or provide effective billing and coding services. MD Pro Solutions offers a wide range of services as an experienced plastic surgery healthcare consultant. In addition to training, education, and support, annual billing reviews and reporting, fast and accurate credentialing, and other administrative services, we can also offer outsourcing for medical billing services.

Why Outsourcing is Better

For many busy practices, the billing department is a source of angst, concern, and frantic disorganization. Recent changes to the healthcare industry, including government-imposed regulations and requirements regarding coding and billing services, have made it a veritable nightmare to stay on top of everything that needs to be done. Rejected, denied, and reduced payments for claims can make it challenging to stay in business and continue providing quality care to patients. There are other benefits associated with outsourcing medical billing services, including reducing costs, eliminating coding and claims submission errors, and improving cash flow, and boosting revenue. However, did you know that outsourcing can also improve customer service and satisfaction for plastic surgery patient services?

When you work with an experienced and reputable provider of plastic surgery medical billing services, you gain other advantages as well. At MD Pro Solutions, we offer a wide range of options that can be used to improve your practice or clinic management. Outsourcing ensures better compliance, allows you to spend more time with patients to increase satisfaction rates, and helps your medical practice collection goals to be realized. Reporting and benchmarking, fast and accurate credentialing for providers, and reduced work for Human Resources (HR) departments due to eliminated coverage issues for billing staff, are all other benefits of outsourcing medical billing services. Lower overhead costs, including employee salaries, holiday and vacation coverage, insurance, and benefits, as well as workstation costs for desks, computers, software, and office space, can be realized as well.

Built-in Oversight Benefits

One of the most overlooked advantages associated with outsourcing medical billing services is that it has a built-in level of audit oversight due to the separation of duties. While regular audits are still highly recommended, performed by an off-site Certified Public Accountant (CPA), this removal of billing and coding services from your busy Plastic Surgery practice can be highly beneficial. Because claims submission is all the outsourcing service does, you can enjoy better compliance and a significant reduction in rejected or denied claims. You work with a team of highly trained and experienced medical billing coding and claims submission experts, so if someone calls out sick or takes a well-earned vacation, your billing services will continue as usual.

Determining whether outsourcing would benefit your practice can be a challenge, which is why we offer a free billing review at MD Pro Solutions. This helps our clients to determine whether their current practices are aligned with their goals and see the different ways that we can help them to get everything back on track. Sometimes education and training are all that is needed to provide the support that your billing department needs. However, if you are interested in exploring the idea of outsourcing medical billing services, we can answer all of your questions, provide information about the fixed costs associated with outsourced services, and go over the step-by-step process to ensure you know what to expect. A review of your collection rate, provision of various reports, review of your fee schedule, and tracking of your no-show rates can help you to get a more accurate picture of how your practice is doing.
