Medical billing and coding is complicated and despite some attempt to simplify coding, it has still become largely responsible for the stress associated with running a medical practice. Hematology billing services can help to increase revenue and greatly reduce that stress.
Outsourcing the entire revenue cycle management (RCM) process is becoming the norm for busy practices and, at the very least, hiring a professional medical billing and coding company like Medcare MSO to manage filing and resolving claims is necessary to assure maximum revenue.
The Need for Professional Billers for Hematology
No field of medicine would be called simple when it comes to medical billing, but hematology is a specialization that especially benefits from outsourcing. These are just a few of the reasons practices thrive better when billing and coding is in the hands of outside professionals.
Combinations of malignant and non-malignant diseases: Sometimes a hematologist will treat a patient for anemia with no other medical complications, but in many cases, the patient also has a malignant condition like leukemia. This makes billing complex, and treatments and even office visits must be carefully documented to avoid claims being rejected.
Complex treatments: Hematologists are often oncologists, but two separate physicians in these specializations may treat the patient. Treatments often involve a series or procedures or medications and coding is complex to notate all the details of who did what, whether it relates to a new or previously treated condition, etc.
High-ticket claim items: As a specialization dealing with many serious diseases and being involved with developing treatments, many items that are billed are expensive, which means that losing the income from even one claim can be a substantial loss of revenue.
