The process of Orthopedics billing needs proper documentation before and after the visit of a patient. The billing team of a practice needs to document carefully and then charge for the services offered by the practice. Incase of errors such as incomplete patient demographics entry can also result in a rejected claim or denial.
Orthopedic billing is more complex as compared to other specialities due to which it requires a deep understanding of providing orthopedics services. Almost 30% to 35% of the orthopedic surgery claims are not correct and out of them 25% of the medical claims get rejected. Such kind of high denial rates can also lead to the bankruptcy of your practice.
Hiring an in-house orthopedic billing team and providing proper training to your team will help you to avoid serious penalties but the process of orthopedic billing is very complicated and difficult to sustain by an in-house team.
However, the best way to reduce your stress from your start and increase revenue is outsourcing your billing requirements to an empowered billing company like MedStar Billing Services.
