Many practices outsource their medical billing to relieve pressure on their internal team. A medical billing company will help code procedures, prepare claims, and coordinate with insurance companies. We’ve previously written about the benefits of outsourcing your medical billing [link to article], but in this post, we’d like to highlight 3 little-known services a medical billing company can (and should) provide to your practice.
Maybe you didn’t know a medical billing company could adapt to your current billing software, deliver patient statements, or consult on your practice’s rates. If these services are important to you, use this criteria to narrow the search as you research the best fit for your practice.
In the same vein, medical billing companies will often answer patients’ questions or concerns about a particular claim. This takes the burden off your internal team, who may not have the answers the patient seeks, especially if they’re unable to explain the insurance company’s reasoning.
When you outsource billing, your medical billing company should be a resource to you in more ways than one. This is why we’ve highlighted these lesser-known services that GMB is more than happy to provide to our clients. Do your research and be sure to ask whether the biller will adapt to your systems, deliver patient statements, or offer guidance when it comes to determining rates.
