Dialysis Medical Billing Services
Specialty Billing Solutions for Dialysis Clinics
Billing and coding for dialysis treatment can be challenging due to frequent changes in CMS regulations. The nature of dialysis as a service that is often offered within a hospital or office setting may also add challenges in coding to receive proper payment amounts. Our billing specialists at Quest National Services are continuously updating their knowledge on the newest regulations and coding specifications to ensure the fastest and most efficient claims processing.
Dialysis Billing Services
Accuracy in billing is crucial for patients that depend on dialysis. A single mistake can mean that a patient is not able to receive the care that is necessary. For a small practice, loosing patients over errors and denials can threaten the reputation and health of the business. For a large practice or hospital, billing errors can add up to serious losses. Our billing specialists can help prevent these types of losses while increasing patient satisfaction and retention.
Handling Denied Claims
QuestNS’ billing specialists will assist in the process of identifying the correct CPT and IDC-9 codes to use working with your individual practice. However, if payer error or other mistakes result in a denied or underpaid dialysis claim, QuestNS will file an appeal and work diligently to retrieve the rightfully owed compensation. Our team will communicate with your office and go line by line through the EOB if necessary to ensure that all information is accurate and that the proper amount is paid for services.
Temporary or Transient Patients
Our experts will pay special attention to the location where dialysis was performed in regards to the patient’s regular medical services. Many dialysis patients are transient or temporary patients, and claims may be denied because the patient has Medicaid coverage in another state. We understand that this is a common problem, and dialysis patients need treatment when traveling or relocating. We will work closely with patients’ case managers to take the steps necessary to obtain payment for services provided and to pave the way for future patients by streamlining the process.
