Medical Billing Challenges for Neurosurgery and Neurology Practices
Medical billing is complicated in general, but the more specialized a field is, the more detailed the coding becomes. Turning over neurosurgery billing to a company that focuses specifically on medical billing has proven to be a valuable solution for many practices. The following are just a few of the aspects that make neurology and neurosurgery billing especially complicated:
It is rare for a patient’s medical journey to begin with neurosurgery. In most cases there will be many practitioners involved in diagnosis and treatment, in addition to the team performing surgery. There may be oncologists, neurologists, infectious disease specialists, etc., depending on the patient’s condition. Medical billers must understand who does what, and how billing is handled for each.
Global Surgery Packages
The idea behind global surgery packages is to simplify medical billing by eliminating the need to add a detailed code for each part of a surgery and any related care. However, not every surgery fits the package and billers must recognize anything that is not included and bill for it appropriately. This process usually includes modifiers to demonstrate medical necessity. A single surgery claim can be for a very large amount, so it is important that every single claim is properly reimbursed.
Underbilling Due to Omitting Services
Surgery is complicated and requires the participation of many people who may be employed by different entities. It is easy to overlook the coding for services provided by one or more of them, which can result in large amounts of lost revenue. Over time, the cumulative effect can be significant enough to threaten the solvency of the practice. Our neurology billing and coding services include confirming that all services are correctly billed.
