Medical Documentation and Coding for Nephrology Centers
Nephrology medical billing is incredibly complicated. Medical billers have to handle dialysis management, document requirements, and capitated payer agreements, meaning that a vast understanding of the process is necessary. With years of experience in medical billing for peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, kidney biopsies, and more, we are the company of choice for nephrology practices around the nation.
Streamlined Medical Billing
We have streamlined the nephrology medical billing process to speed up the turnaround for payments while reducing claim denials. We don’t send out bills and wait for the money to come in. Our dedicated medical billing team follows each bill to ensure a prompt payment. That might include contacting the insurance company or the patient to inquire about the payment.
This is where Emerald Health really shines. Our nephrology medical billing team understands the terms associated with the various procedures and can explain them to patients in laymen’s terms. Patients are often confused about what they’re being billed for, so they don’t pay. Once our team explains the procedure to them, they understand that they owe the money and remit payment promptly. This cuts down on the wait time between payments and helps our clients receive a steady stream of income they can count on month after month.
Regulations Impact Nephrology Medical Billing
The nephrology field is constantly changing, and those changes often mean new insurance and government regulations. For instance, the attending doctor must now be on hand during a dialysis session. Our team understands all of the regulations and complies with them to ensure you receive prompt payment.
The team also uses the correct modifiers and stays up-to-date on any coding changes. This is the only way to efficiently run a medical billing team. By keeping up with the latest trends and changes, our team keeps the money coming into the practice.
We Reduce Claim Denials
Our system takes human error out of the equation, allowing us to reduce claim denials. Our first-pass claim rate is exceptional, and at the same time, we specialize in denial claim processing.
