Coding & Billing
A medical practice’s Billing Department is similar to the human heart; if it’s not pumping, the organism will die. Many physicians and other practitioners provide outstanding patient care, but their survival is threatened by inadequate, inefficient, and incorrect billing practices. Moreover, as long as revenue is being received by the practice, in our experience, there is not always a focus on accuracy and correct reimbursement.
Billing companies process third party reimbursement claims as instructed by the practitioner. Most billing companies don’t question the level or accuracy of the billing; they simply transmit and process what they receive and follow up on outstanding payments.
At Coleman Consulting Group, we go the extra step. Because we employ certified coders, our role is to review the practitioner’s documentation and ensure the proper coding for procedures and diagnoses. This always involves education to the provider of specific coding guidelines and conventions to assure compliance with ethical standards and Conditions of Participation.
Whether you continue to process your billing in-house, or outsource it completely, CCG is your partner for accurate billing practices that can stand the scrutiny of today’s compliance environment.
