ENT Medical Billing Services
Increase your revenue by 7.5% & decrease your time in A/R with medical billing services tailored to ENT practitioners, like you. We help practices of all shapes & sizes nationwide serve patients more profitably with first-in-class medical billing services.
ENT offices offer a wide variety of services to patients that have persistent or acute ear, nose, and throat problems. The variety of conditions that are presented at an ENT office each day requires physicians and staff to be continually educated on the treatment methods and surgeries that are required to properly care for patients of all ages. Worrying about collections, billing, and updating medical coding can be time consuming and can make it difficult for an office to generate the customer base needed to expand. Quest National Services offer ENT offices the opportunity to outsource medical billing to trusted professionals, which can save space, time, and money.
One of the largest concerns that ENT and otolaryngology practices face is receiving proper revenue for all services rendered. If the wrong code or modifier is used to bill for a service, the claim may be denied or underpaid. This can be devastating to smaller offices and can cause larger offices to hemorrhage revenues as errors crop up repeatedly. QuestNS professionals specialize in ENT billing and will help to educate and inform office staff so that the correct CPT and IDC-9 codes are used to bill for diagnosis and treatment.
We’re experts in billing and coding procedures for ENT services such as, but not limited to:
- Endocrine Surgery
- Surgical oncology
- Cleft palate and lip surgery
- Treatment for sleep apnea and snoring
- Allergy treatment and medications
- Sinusitis treatment and surgery
- Treatment for vascular malformations
- Treatment for hearing loss or auditory complications
We pay special attention to critical changes in the industry that will inevitably affect the billing and coding process. It’s critical to have consistent knowledge of treatment changes such as in-office imaging, Doppler and other echo services, and implanted devices’ follow-up procedures.
In many cases, it is required that ENT offices perform surgery and other medical care within the same day. When this is the case, it is imperative that the appropriate modifiers are used when billing or that the codes are bundled in the correct way to receive payment from providers. The team of billing and coding professionals at QuestNS are well acclimated with the CCI list for CMS and will follow the proper procedures to make sure that only appropriate services are bundled, reducing the number of claim denials and putting more money to the bottom line.
Follow Up Collections Services
Follow up is critical to receiving payment for ENT services rendered. In many cases, patient balances are higher for ENT services than for many other medical services. Our staff is proficient when it comes to going through complicated EOBs with patients so that all ENT billing is understood. Our staff will only address patients in the most courteous manner, and will work with patients individually to ensure the highest rate of revenue collection for ENT offices and the highest degree of patient satisfaction.
