Our Pediatric Billing Services Are Widespread

Advances made in pediatric in recent years have increased the success of treatment but have also resulted in new and more complex pediatric medical coding and billing requirements.

How Medcare MSO Can Help in Pediatric Billing Services

Pediatric offices need their staff to be especially attentive to patients so outsourcing pediatric billing services can be particularly beneficial. Not only are there unique challenges to dealing with children, but there are also often siblings present and since children are so vulnerable to contagious diseases, extra precautions and short wait times are necessary, all of which require the attention of in-office staff.

Outsourcing pediatric medical coding and billing is especially helpful in a busy office where the staff has to be on their toes to ensure patients are treated as efficiently as possible. They have enough on their minds without having to be figuring out payer changes on the fly.

Medical Billing And Coding Is a Challenge for Pediatric Practices

Whether you are in independent pediatric practice or part of a hospital or other larger institution, here are aspects of the field which make pediatric healthcare billing difficult.

Managing Seasonal Services

Vaccinations are required more in pediatrics than any other specialization and careful pediatric billing codes to assure accurate record-keeping is essential. Keeping track of which vaccines have been administered and which are required for school versus which are recommended for health purposes and helping parents stay informed—are also important services of pediatric practices.

Compliance with Government Requirements for Offers and Incentives

The US government is typically more sensitive to assuring medical care is received by children and youth than adults, so more programs are available and recommended for pediatric populations. It is extremely difficult for busy office staff to keep up with making sure all the requirements are followed to document participation so that the office can receive any remuneration it deserves from these programs.

Age Documentation Changes at Age 18

As youth become adults, they will be transitioning to adult care, but many families will keep their children with their pediatrician through high school so coding and billing staff must be aware of CPT codes changing for everything when the patient turns 18, even though nothing else has changed in the patient’s life.

Handling Denials and Rejections

Payers reject claims for the slightest errors or mismatched information. With families moving from place to place and changing pediatricians, it can be difficult to make sure the patient’s chart is fully up to date, but any mismatched information will trigger a rejection. Outsourcing the management of claims to a dedicated team of certified specialists is by far the best way to let the medical professionals focus on patient care while the billers make sure the practice is paid for the services it performs.
