Paperwork Demands on Physicians Are High

There is a lot of detail involved, contributing to physicians spending more and more time on paperwork and having less time and energy for patient care. The good news is that almost all of the administrative work related to gastroenterology practice billing can be outsourced to professional billing companies like Medcare MSO, who do nothing but manage that aspect of the medical field.

Why Do Gastroenterology Billing Services Need Specialists?

Medical billers and coders should always be trained, but it is especially important for specializations such as gastroenterology billing, which uses a unique set of codes but also has several conditions making billing service more complex, including the following examples:

Complicated Coding

Gastroenterology procedures are performed at varying facilities and with different teams: gastroenterology billing codes must reflect both who was involved and what kind of facility was used as well as what was done. Each physician and attending medical professional must be indicated, but not necessarily separately, as some procedures are bundled.

Moderate Sedation Complexities

Coding for sedation varies, depending on how long the patient was affected as well as whether there was a separate physician present for anesthesiology. This requires coders and billers to be familiar with the procedures and knowledgeable about the various combinations that require modification to the codes.

Follow-Up Exams Require History Details to Get Full Reimbursement

After a patient has been diagnosed and treated, future screenings are coded as high risk, and coding must also indicate the history, again, requiring experience in the specialization for coders and billers.
