Nephrology billing is highly complex, requiring very specific CPT codes which must match appropriately to ICD-9 codes and modifiers as necessary. Specific documentation requirements may also vary depending on the payer’s guidelines, whether coverage is provided by CMS or smaller private or commercial healthcare insurers.
Any small error in coding or use of a modifier is enough to result in insurance claim denials and in some cases even audits. However, errors are quite common when coding for nephrology, and claim denial rates are generally higher than in other specialties. The expert billers at Quest National Services can help avoid these headaches and reduce the rate of claim denials for nephrology offices.
Patients that seek the expertise of nephrologists are often dealing with life-threatening diseases and conditions, and cannot afford to spend time or energy discussing insurance complications. Nephrologists take these matters very seriously, but may be stretched thin when it comes to managing the business aspects of a nephrology practice in addition to the crucial medical procedures.
QuestNS helps to relieve this burden for both patients and nephrology offices by handling all facets of billing and coding, evaluating offices to ensure compliance with regulations, and reporting back to office management and staff with any important or requested updates.
