Medical Billing Outsourcing – Great Financial Relief

Medical billing outsourcing improves your cash flow. As per a recent survey that appeared in the Medical Group Management Journal, the average expenditure for in-house internal billing was 11 percent of the amount the practice earned. Outsourcing of this important back office process doesn’t just ensure economic benefits (reduction in overhead costs). It also saves time, which can be devoted to patient care.

Companies offering cost-effective medical billing outsourcing look after the following and other facets of the medical billing process: demographic entry; charge entry; payment posting; claims submission; denial analysis; reporting; insurance verifications; cash posting; code analysis and checking; AR follow up, collections; billing of accounts; insurance authorizations; and insurance collection. Three ways how medical billing outsourcing improves your cash flow are:

  • You no longer need to recruit and train staff to get your billing done; you don’t have to worry about their salary, healthcare, or insurance.
  • Experts at the job are handling your medical billing so there would be fewer or zero errors, and fewer rejected claims. That means less money lost.
  • The service providers may use the low-cost manpower available in countries such as India.

Choosing the Ideal Provider

There are different factors you can keep in mind when choosing between different medical billing outsourcing companies – HIPAA compliance, qualification and experience of medical billing professionals, work reports, support for your preferred medical insurance, turnaround, quality, superior track record, whether they would be willing to use your present medical billing software, and so on.
