Medcare MSO’s Medical Billing for Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery is a highly specialized field of medicine, with neurosurgeons being some
of the most educated and trained doctors—so it is a real loss when any of them stop
practicing because of job dissatisfaction. One of the major causes of this happening is
the load of paperwork that doctors are now saddled with.
We relieves doctors from responsibility
Medcare MSO relieves doctors of a tremendous amount of administrative responsibility by taking over revenue cycle management (RCM), with customizable services to allow you to decide exactly what you want. All our employees are trained in HIPPA best practices, so you never have to worry about patient privacy, and we have coders and billers who are both certified and experienced in medical billing for neurosurgery.
Medical Billing Challenges for Urology Practices
Rarely used codes—Medical billers who enter the same codes every day become quite familiar with them, but highly specialized procedures are not performed very often, so the coding may not be well understood, resulting in errors.
Once a procedure has been performed and a claim submitted, payers often deny coverage of that item, but often the claim is legitimate and a coding error has been included that does not correctly indicate what was done. One common reason for this is that the coding for the tests that demonstrated that the procedure was medically necessary are missing. It doesn’t matter if the rest of the documentation makes it obvious that it was necessary, the coding requirements must be followed, literally, to the letter.
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, which 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, some of whom may be employed by a different entity. It is easy to miss the 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.
