Medical Billing Services
Each billing agreement is individually negotiated to meet the client’s specific needs. All agreements include:
Electronic and Paper HCFA billing
Claims are billed electronically, whenever possible, as this is the most efficient process. However, we still bill paper claims, if needed, to recover your monies.
It is vital to properly credit insurance and patient payments to keep your practice in compliance.
Many claims, even when billed properly, can be delayed. We provide follow up on all filed claims that remain unresolved after 60 days.
Although we are not a collection agency, we do make a good faith effort to collect patient balances. The specific terms of this effort will be determined by your practice.
You may also choose to take advantage of the following:
Many of our clients sign on with us with large existing Accounts Receivables. In most cases, large numbers of these claims are still collectible. We will be happy to review your current A/R to negotiate a recovery-billing rate.
It is crucial that the practice and the billing service networks are functional at all times. We can provide software and hardware support, based on your particular needs.
Proper coding is the responsibility of the physician providing services. However, MDBS has certified coders on staff to provide consultation and clarification.
Our Certified Professional Coders can perform random sampling audits of your charts to ensure that your coding is in compliance with federal standards.
We will be happy to assist you with an EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system that is immediately compatible with our billing software.
In addition to initial training for your office staff, we regularly sponsor continuing education opportunities for our billers that are also available to your staff.
