If you spend most of your days dealing with visions of compound fractures, third trimester pregnancies and rotator cuff injuries, all while in the solitude of darkened room, then you are privileged to be in the radiology profession. Radiologists are fundamental to the practice of medicine, in that their findings will aid in determining the best course of medical action for a patient. Without them, referring physicians such as cardiologists, oncologists and orthopedic surgeons would be functioning in the dark.
As many physicians know, radiology medical billing services (whether on- or off-site) are a specialty that is rife with modifiers, professional components, technical components and bundling issues. In order to properly process these radiology medical billing claims in a way that allows for a fully processed claim the first time around, you need a billing service with extensive and long-standing expertise in this area of medical billing. Whether your radiology claim is for a chest x-ray with a diagnosis of bronchitis, a pelvic ultrasound with a diagnosis of polycystic ovarian disease or a head MRI with a diagnosis of transient ischemic attack, our service is well equipped to manage your claims.
Further, we can work with radiology medical billing claims from an IDTF or Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility and will always be certain to use a correct place of service for these claims. Further, because many radiologists rarely have patient contact we will work with the hospital or referring physician for complete and up-to-date demographic information on your patient. This will include a correct name, date of birth, insurance carrier, ID number, group number and responsible party. If there is a secondary policy, especially for Medicare primary patients or for children insured via both parents, we will be certain to collect that information as well. The more we can do for you, the more time you can devote to the practice of Radiology.
Our radiology medical billing software and state of the art systems work well with nearly all hospital systems and radiologist’s EMR (Electronic Medical Record) systems. This makes submission of radiology claims to the proper payer quick and efficient. Naturally, this translates to consistent, robust revenue for your practice and allows you to grow at a consistent and steady rate. Additionally, you need not be troubled with claims pick-up, paper cluttering your offices and slow claims payment.
We will also fully educate ourselves on any contracts that your radiology practice has signed. This includes the claims address, denial appeal process, claims reimbursement rate, capitation rate (if applicable) and any additional details that may lead to additional revenue for your business. We are radiology claims appeal experts and will take the time to appeal any claim that is not processed per the terms of your contract.
Our radiology medical billing services will be an extension of your practice and you can depend on us for consistent, professional and timely claims processing. This includes providing routine reports for your review and the availability to discuss your radiology business at your convenience.
