Outsource Medical Billing
Outsourcing for Better Business Management:
Every medical practice or office faces the decision of in-house vs. outsourced medical billing and coding. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these options that must be carefully considered. Therefore, each business will be different in terms of which billing and coding method best complements the company and maximizes time, resources, and revenue. At Quest National Services, we can help business with their billing and coding processes, regardless of whether they would like to set up in-house systems or outsource the process entirely.
In-House vs. Outsourced Billing
Choosing between in-house medical billing and outsourced medical billing requires considering factors such as the time, resources, and finances of the practice. Some practices may prefer in-house medical billing, but may find themselves lacking the resources to properly work accounts receivable, denials, and high patient balances. QuestNS can help offices and practices that may not have the ideal factors in place for exceptional in-house medical billing and coding.
Improved Patient Care
When medical facilities and practices outsource medical billing, they have more time and resources to focus on what really matters: the health and wellbeing of patients. This is especially true for smaller medical businesses with fewer staff members. Medical billing and coding requires extensive knowledge and constant updates on changes in industry regulations and compliance requirements. Managing the medical billing process requires careful attention to detail that many practices may simply not have time to commit.
Outsourced medical billing can improve a business’s bottom line by saving money and improving cash flow. In many cases, outsourced medical billing saves costs by decreasing annual salaries, benefits, and other costs that would otherwise be paid to in-house medical billing and coding staff members.
Additionally, companies that outsource medical billing and coding can rely on steady, interruption-free service. This means that billing and coding is performed in a timely manner, thus reducing delays in reimbursement. Most clients of QuestNS realize a NET increase between 5-10% within the first 6 months of starting their relationship with QuestNS!
Medical Billing Compliance
One of the most critical issues in medical billing and coding is maintaining compliance in all aspects of the process, such as managing claims with Medicare, Medicaid, and third party payers. With virtually constant changes in requirements and regulations, compliance remains a critical issue for medical offices and practices.
Ensuring that medical providers are following each payer’s protocol can be extremely time-consuming and complex. Compliance can help businesses benefit from decreased delays and denials, ultimately resulting in more revenue. With QuestNS’s services, medical providers that outsource medical billing and coding can rest assured knowing that their practice will stay compliant and their businesses will reap the benefits.
