As a dedicated medical billing company, Medcare MSO stays up to date with the new codes and reporting requirements as they are released. The latest billing challenges for practitioners have been around how to get reimbursed for COVID-19 vaccine administration, but our clients don’t have to worry at all.

Successfully Maximizing Reimbursements for Coronavirus Services

Medcare MSO’s expertise is revenue cycle management and we don’t shy away from a challenge. Our experienced medical billers do what it takes to track down the new codes and procedures to get our clients paid.

Reimbursement for Free Vaccination

Initial doses are being supplied by the government at no charge, so providers must be sure not to charge for the vaccine itself, but to use the separate codes for administration of the vaccine. When pharmaceutical companies begin to charge for vaccines, billing for vaccines that were free to the provider could result in a fraud investigation, so billing should be handled by professionals.

Roster Billing

Providers enrolled as mass immunizers and some others must use roster billing. Multiple patients must be on the same roster, but multiple immunizations given to an individual at the same time must be kept on separate rosters. Medcare MSO’s COVID vaccine billing services keep it all straight, so you don’t have to worry about it.

State Requirements

Each state has its own processes in addition to Medicare requirements. Medcare MSO’s medical billing team accommodates each one to make sure that all requirements are met, and our clients receive the reimbursements they deserve.

Uninsured Patients

Reimbursement is available for the vaccine and its administration for patients who are uninsured through the Provider Relief Fund. (Medicare rates are used for most reimbursement according the fund’s web page at HHS.gov.) We submit the necessary documentation, so our clients get paid for giving the vaccine to uninsured patients.

Revenue Cycle Management

Complete Revenue Cycle Management (RCM)

Medcare MSO provides support for all aspects of the medical revenue cycle from payer credentialing to patient billing. Our clients often start with one service, such as handling old AR accounts, and are so happy with the increased revenue they receive that they request additional services. Interacting with insurers and government payers is time consuming and can be stressful for practitioners, but we are happy to take care of all of it for our clients.

We Have the Experience Needed to Clarify Coronavirus Lab Billing

In order to encourage more people to get tested for SARS-CoV-2, testing is supposed to be performed at no cost to the patient. In reality, depending on the state, the type of facility where testing is done may determine who pays. Additionally, because some facilities have in-house labs, but others collect swab specimens and send them out to be processed, place of service coding errors are resulting in claim rejections.

We have extensive experience with lab billing, so our billers are familiar with the various scenarios that arise and know what to include in claims to make sure they are accepted.

Outsourcing

Streamline Your Business by Outsourcing to a Professional Medical Billing Company

The pandemic not only affects patients, but it is wreaking havoc on medical practices too. Putting off non-emergency care has resulted in far fewer patient visits for many facilities, making it more important than ever to get reimbursed the maximum possible amount for every claim. Our system tracks each claim until it is paid, so none fall through the cracks or get written off as being too much work to appeal.

In-house billing is also affected by staff absences, which are likely to increase due to illness, both from office staff becoming ill and taking time off to care for family members. Our staff is large enough to provide a buffer against absences slowing down your billing.
