Medical billing services cover a wide range of activities but the main goal of any medical biller is to process physician super-bills (treatment description) and file claims with insurance companies to ensure that their clients are paid the proper amount in a timely fashion.
A typical medical billing business, working independently from a hospital or clinic, uses medical billing software to input clients’ new billing data and send it to the appropriate insurer, while also adhering to all the appropriate laws and standards. Medical billing services also include answering patient and insurance company questions and concerns, and follow-up in the case of overdue payments.
Using the medical billing software at their disposal, medical billing companies often generate reports for their clients so they can see a cash flow analysis and discover what insurance contracts are making them money and which ones are not.
Medical billing services combine the skills of interpersonal communication, bookkeeping, office and computer skills, with basic medical knowledge to provide clients with an accurate and efficient method to be reimbursed for their services.
Other medical billing services can be to provide information to a client on how to more effectively manage their practice. Physicians and hospital/clinic staff often find themselves at odds with one another over billing issues, especially when it comes to how to process billing information. Medical billing businesses sometimes offer training to teach hospital and clinic employees how to more efficiently and correctly process claims and follow-up on collections.
