Is YOUR Practice Making a Huge Mistake?

Posted on December 30th, 2019 / Under Uncategorized / With No Comments

One of the costliest issues for a medical practice is that of claim denials. They cost the practice revenue by delaying payments. They slow the work efficiency, by forcing you and your staff to resubmit old claims in lieu of working on current claims. In general, they add frustration to the already hectic workday.

Even the most scrupulous medical billing departments receive claim denials, but by avoiding the most common mistakes, your practice can reduce the denial rate significantly.

Here are some of the top medical billing errors:
1. Coding is not correct
2. Coding is not specific enough
3. Patient information is missing
4. Patient information is incorrect
5. Claim information is missing
6. Claim not filed in time

How do you avoid these mistakes? One answer is this: You pour over claims with a fine-toothed comb prior to submission and become a coding expert in your spare time.

If that does not sound appealing to you, try using a medical billing company staffed by experts in the field to take the burden off of your staff and to streamline the process for your practice. This is a proven method to reduce the number of submissions of incomplete and inaccurate claims that could result in denials, in turn increasing the number of payments you receive.

Harnessing the experience of dedicated medical billing professionals will accelerate the speed with which your practice receives payments and decrease your rate of denials, improving your practice’s bottom line and saving your sanity along the way. Additionally, it will allow your practice to focus solely on what really matters: the patients.

One Source Medical Billing has the experience and expertise to reduce claim denials to reduce redundancy on the part of you and your staff. Learn more about how your practice will benefit by completing a FREE comprehensive audit with our staff.

Why Your Practice Needs Our Free Third-Party Medical Billing Audit

Why Your Practice Needs Our Free Third-Party Medical Billing Audit

Are you getting optimal billing results in your practice? Are your claims getting a high number of denials? One Source Medical Billing (OSMB) offers auditing of your claims to find any issues you may be having, either on the front end or the back end of the claims process. By pinpointing specific issues, OSMB can improve claims management and boost reimbursements.

OSMB will review the full revenue cycle of your practice for the past year to locate the billing improvements needed to boost your overall payment success. These are a few examples that can delay clearing your insurance Accounts Receivable (A/R):

• Denied claims with no follow-up: Some claims in the active A/R may have been denied, but the denial was never received or have been posted but the cause of the denial was not resolved. Insurance companies can deny reconsideration if not resubmitted on time and can result in lost revenue.
• Incorrect Payment Posting: Erroneous payments and adjustments leave the A/R with false balances and can delay the collection of proper reimbursements from secondary insurances or private payments.
• Delayed Payment Postings: Untimely insurance payment postings will provide false A/R turnaround values.
• Missing Payments: Missing EFTs or payments mailed to the wrong address can be found with simple claim follow-ups.
• No Active Insurance Coverage: Lack of proper insurance verification of all patients can lead to denials based on “no active participant found” or “no active coverage at the time of service.”
• No Claims on File: A common delay in claims processing is simply that the insurance company did not receive the claim. Whether lost in transmission or stalled in a clearinghouse, these claims need to be resent promptly.

The OSMB audit will break down all practice claims results into categories for a specific review of areas needing improvement in your revenue cycle, as well as show you where your billing cycle is working as it should. This audit report can help improve your bottom line and increase our revenue by showing if some minor adjustments are needed, or additional training might be required. Can you afford NOT to have our free audit? Call us today 888-624-5563

One Source Medical Billing and Covid-19

One Source Medical Billing and Covid-19

You can’t watch a single news broadcast that doesn’t talk about Covid-19, but as a medical provider, you don’t have to watch the news to be reminded of how Covid-19 is impacting your practice. You are dealing with Covid-19 on a daily basis, perhaps with a decreased patient schedule or possibly an increased patient schedule now that things are opening up again.

In-office visits take longer with social distancing requirements, checking temperatures, and extra sanitizing between patients. Unavoidable staff reductions have made this process more difficult.

Worse yet, maybe some of your staff has contracted Covid-19. No matter what the cause, if your staff decrease is in the billing department, your billing process has been disrupted. Billing disruption means a decline in your bottom line. One Source Medical Billing can help you get back on track.

Maybe you are conducting a lot of telemedicine visits. Telemedicine is being used to address most of the non-urgent health issues with three main telehealth options.

• Telehealth Visits: Phone or video conference via a telecommunication device.
• Virtual Check-Ins: Contact by phone (or another secure communication portal) to determine if an office visit or other intervention is needed.
• E-Visits: Patient and provider communication through a secure online portal.

The increase in telemedicine visits requires new filing procedures that your billing department has never encountered. The transition to telemedicine has been difficult for many healthcare practices due to the frequent changes for payment requirements and new codes being established for visits related to the coronavirus.

Is your current billing solution on top of timely billing and diligent follow-up on your claims?

One Source Medical Billing is offering a free comprehensive audit to determine the health of your current billing cycle and reimbursement percentages.

A One Source Medical Billing audit can show if you are receiving the maximum reimbursement due to your practice or where improvements can be made. Call us today 888-624-5563

Telehealth / Telemedicine

Posted on December 7th, 2020 / Under Uncategorized / With No Comments

COVID-19 has not only changed the manner in which patients receive medical care but has also caused an upheaval in billing procedures. Early in 2020, CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) moved quickly to implement coding changes for telemedicine care. With the wide variety of virtual services available for Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance patients, billing is now more complicated than ever.

Has your office kept up with the many pages of new virtual care regulations? Has your staff been downsized to the point that it is difficult for them to receive the training needed? Your office may not be realizing all the full compensation your services are entitled to receive.

Are you aware of the many different services available via telemedicine now? Virtual routine healthcare such as wellness visits are the biggest benefit in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, but nutrition and mental health counseling, skin care, and medication consultations are also encouraged.

If your office has not started using telehealth yet, it is something every doctor’s office needs to be taking advantage of. A virtual visit requires 2-way communication technology which is readily available on many secure platforms. Video streaming is typically used, but some virtual visits can be done with voice communication alone. Although some services require in-person visits, telemedicine can generate up to $600 annually for patients needing chronic health management.

Our team of experts at One Source Medical Billing will take the confusion out of the billing process and increase your bottom line while freeing the rest of your staff to provide the best possible care for your patients. We are a full-service billing service, handling the initial claim, resubmissions, dispute billings, and payment posting, as well as balance billing to the patient.

Virtual healthcare does not have to be complicated. Let One Source Medical Billing make it easy for you while increasing billable revenues. Call us today for a consultation 888-624-5563
