Urology is the field of medicine that refers to the treatment of the male reproductive system. Due to the codes and terminologies used for urology billing, it can be very complicated. Urology billing requires prior knowledge and experience and can only be handled by a urology billing expert. Urology can also overlap with some other specialties like gastroenterology, gynecology, pediatrics, oncology, and andrology which makes it more challenging.
Due to the complexity of the disease Urologists concentrate more on providing excellent level medical care. Due to this reason, they may lose track of the revenue cycle. Underpayment or non-payment for urology services impact the practice significantly because urology procedures cost very high. However, it would be better to have an in-house billing team but it can cause many denials due to the lack of expertise.
You can have better control over denials and collections to healthcare organizations by outsourcing an experienced urology billing service provider such as MedStar Billing Services.
