The world of healthcare is changing and you need to keep up with these shifts. Urgent care centers are playing an important part by serving as a go-between for your primary care provider and the emergency room.
We do things like handling burns, injuries, breathing problems, perfuming X-rays, treating the fever/flu, and addressing mild asthma attacks. Urgent care centers are in demand and require billing for many different services.
This is challenging as you have to keep up with the latest changes and do everything right. The reality is that three out of every four bills have at least one error. This means that your services are not booked as revenues and you must resubmit everything. This costs you time and money.
Outsourcing your urgent care billing services makes all the difference. Here are some of the ways an urgent care medical billing company can help you.
You don’t have time for your staff to specialize in urgent care billing. Even when they do, there are so many changes in coding and the lack of fail-safes means that mistakes will still occur.
Urgent care billing companies understand all of the latest coding procedures. We have manual and automated tools that look at every bill for accuracy. This means that you see a sharp decline in errors and you get your money faster. Specialization is combined with our experience to give you the best urgent care billing services.
We let your staff focus on practicing medicine and improving the quality of care you are delivering.
One of the challenges an urgent care center faces is the influx of people. The front desk is where they capture the information on first-time visitors and start a profile. The problem is that verifying the benefits is time-consuming. The staff needs to know what is covered before the service is delivered. There is a limited window to contact the insurance company and verify what is covered.
An urgent care billing company handles all of this for you. Our team of experts will contact the insurance company immediately and let you know what is covered. This improves the chances that you will collect the full amount of your fees from the insurance company and patient.
Collections are another challenge facing urgent care centers. You have to stay current on what the insurance company and patient owe. Routine follow-up is necessary to ensure that everyone pays on time.
The challenge is that in-house collections fall behind. They let everyone slide and your fees are not fully booked into your revenues. You can’t keep taking losses like this and need an effective process that makes collections easy.
An urgent care billing company does all of the collections. We monitor who is paying and communicate with others to let them know what they owe. This increases the odds that everyone will pay their portion quickly.
