Electronic health data is more important than ever. Today’s health care industry relies on digital systems to record key data for medical services, diagnoses, and medical claims.
As electronic health transactions (which include claims) get more sophisticated, providers and payers will need employees to be able to accurately input, track, and analyze electronic health data.
Billers and coders reduce provider costs. Medical billers work to get providers reimbursed in a timely manner. The sooner a provider is paid for the service, the better they perform.
A medical billing service helps physicians obtain payment from insurance carriers and patients by handling insurance claims, and provide information to help physicians to more effectively manage their practice.
Provide the following services:
- Preparing either electronic or paper claims to insurance companies,
- Entering patient information into the software
- Mailing patients’ statements
- Posting payments
- Following-up on all unpaid insurance claims, as well as appeals and denials
- Conducting "soft" collection on non-paying patients (e.g. making phone calls and sending out past due statements)
- Submitting reports to the doctor (e.g. number of patients per month, etc.)
- Handling all patient billing inquiries
