How to Increase Dermatology Practice Collections
Nov 14, 2022
Increasing your dermatology practice’s collections is the best way to keep everything running smoothly. Follow these tips to not only improve your medical billing but also to free up more of your time for additional patients.
Make Time for More Patients
The best way to make more money is to see more patients. The more patients and the more patient visits you have, the more claims you can process. However, there’s only so much time in a day. If you’re having to process your all claims yourself, then it can be difficult to actually make time for more patients. However, if you combine this tip with one of the following two, you’ll be able to increase your collections.
Streamline Your In-House Medical Billing
If you’re wanting to handle the entire billing process within your own practice, it’s a good idea to streamline the process. Assign claims processing to one employee, who can become an expert in the correct CPT codes and modifiers as well as stay up-to-date on billing rules. Having just one person submit claims can also mean that they’re done more quickly because that employee can prioritize them over other tasks.
Hire a Medical Billing Service
Alternatively, you could outsource your medical billing to a professional billing service like Quest National Services. This can be the best solution if you don’t have enough staff or would prefer to hire fewer staff members. You won’t have to worry about freeing up time for processing claims. Instead, professional billers will handle that for you so that you and your staff can focus more on patients.
