Are you looking to improve the medical billing and claims process of your medical organization? It can be challenging to manage your billing procedures, patient accounts, as well as your practice revenue. Not only is it time-consuming, but it can be rather burdensome. Your front-end employees will often have their hands full which can hurt the efficiency of your practice. If you want happy patients, you want to keep your operations as simple as possible by simplifying your operations. Here are four ways you can improve your medical billing for your patients.
Verify Patient Insurance
It is essential that every patient’s insurance is verified before their scheduled appointment. Ideally, you want to get this done a couple of days before so you have time to reschedule if you are can’t manage to verify their insurance. It is also a good idea to assign an employee who is solely responsible for verifying patient insurance. This can be completed in a few different ways. The traditional method is to through telephone; however, we now have electronic medical records at our disposal as well.
Use Medical Billing Technologies
If you want to enhance your collections process, you should look towards technology. There is a vast variety of tools like the automated revenue management tool that can help your collections and billing process. For example, you can set up automated reminder messages about payments. They can even be connected to your mobile devices.
Don’t Wait On Collections
It is in the best interest of your practice to make collections when patients are in your office. A patient is far less likely to pay once they leave your doors. This includes collected past due balances, copays, deductibles, and coinsurances. It may be a good idea to create a system where before your patients can clear any balances before they walk out of your office.
Ensure Accuracy Of Claims
One of the best ways to avoid disgruntled patients is to verify the accuracy of the information that is being sent out. You want to try your best to keep your claims free of mistakes the first time around through medical billing audits.
