It has become a growing concern that instead of caring for and ensuring the well-being of their patients, some doctors spend more time filling out forms and processing transactions for their bills. This is the problem that medical billing companies address; They give space to their clients, who are doctors and medical institutions, to focus more on their core businesses. But this is not the only benefit that billing companies offer to those in the medical field. In fact, it can be said that there is much more to medical billing than this.

It is imperative that medical billing companies have a streamlined process that enables them to support their clients. Having received a high volume of transactions as more doctors and medical institutions realize the benefits of delegating their billing work to a medical billing company, medical billing companies are now turning to a third-party solution provider to assist them. to establish a process that will further improve your service. In addition to payment accounting, there are other tasks that are incorporated into the medical billing process, and these tasks are completed with a number of benefits attached.

Time: primary concern of doctors

With a solution provider, a bill issuer can serve an average of 5 customers per day. A fast response time is one of the key benefits of outsourcing your medical billing transactions to a solution provider, but with a 5: 1 ratio of customers to billers, one might think that a fast response time is impossible. In fact, it is not, as it has become a trend for most outsourcing companies to exceed the response time suggested by billing companies with that type of index mentioned.

In addition to having technology assistance such as medical software and claims systems, outsourcing companies also implement efficiency methods to speed up transaction processing. Following the development of a streamlined process and efficiency methods, solution providers can now meet the metrics set by their customers.

Cost: where less can bring more

One of the concerns of outsourcing companies is being able to reduce their costs but still maintain, if not improve, the quality of the service they are currently providing. Internal medical billing is gaining popularity today as it has a fair amount of benefits over medical billing companies that have the opportunity to verify their employees and evaluate their performance. However, there are cases where internal medical billing companies, on average, have a larger number of billers serving a single customer, resulting in higher costs for the company, while a solution provider can provide a 5: 1 ratio of customers to billers. This comparison reflects a noticeable difference in a company's budget between internal medical billing and turning to a third-party solution provider.

Data: accuracy rates that exceed expectations

According to a survey conducted by the Medical Billing Association, there is only a minimum percentage of its respondents who review and verify each of the explanations of benefits (EOB). With this minimum rate, it helps if a solution provider can produce accuracy rates that exceed the expectations of their customers.

Solution providers can help a billing company deliver one hundred percent accuracy rates throughout the medical billing process, especially if they can design a process that can guarantee the quality of service provided. According to a previously published article, 8 out of 10 invoices contain errors, but there are a number of steps a company can take to reduce errors, or better yet, to provide a 100% error-free transaction. Quality assurance processes may include the implementation of thorough data reviews and weekly call reviews.

The key benefits of seeking the assistance of a third-party solution provider may be the same for all industries that fall within the outsourcing group, but what separates medical billing outsourcing is that it can directly and instantly improve the revenue cycle. of a company.
