Go into simple procedures
Whether a gastroenterology practice is in a hospital or ambulatory surgery center, there are many parts that go into even simple procedures. All of those parts must be accounted for in the codes that are submitted for billing, and anything that is missing or inconsistent will cause a claim to be rejected.
Physicians spending more time on paperwork
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 revenue cycle management (RCM) can be outsourced to professionals like Medcare MSO who do nothing but manage that aspect of the medical field.
Why Do Gastroenterology Medical Billing Services Need Specialists?
Medical billers and coders should always be trained, but it is especially important for a specializations such as gastroenterology, which uses a unique set of codes but also has several conditions making billing more complex, such as:
Gastroenterology procedures are performed at varying facilities and with differing teams: Coding 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, requiring coders and billers to be familiar with the procedures and knowledgeable about the various combinations that change 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.
