Top-Notch Medical Billing and Coding for Cincinnati Healthcare Practices
The world of medical billing and coding is far from being one of the simplest parts of healthcare, which is why we bring solutions to the table that are continuously refined and effective when it comes to ensuring all of our clients stay compliant with both government agencies as well as the insurance companies that are dealt with.
Our experienced consultants who used to work for the FBI as investigators, experienced attorneys who we have in-house, and medical billing specialists know what it takes to keep things at their peak. We are continuously refining our knowledge to ensure we stay on top of the modernization of the world of healthcare.
We will get you in compliance while ensuring you stay compliant long-term.
An initial compliance process will be developed specifically for your medical practice to ensure that full compliance is always embraced. Not only will this help boost approvals on your insurance claims, but it will also serve as a preventive measure when it comes to being exposed to fraudulent practices.
Once the initial process is rolled out and being embraced, we will continue to refine it over time to ensure that as the requirements from insurance companies and government agencies change, your processes will adapt to them. This ensures compliance for the long-term as well.
A Complete Offering of Cincinnati Medical Billing and Coding Services
By being a full-service medical billing company, Fortis can provide our clients with a multi-faceted approach when it comes to fulfilling their needs without forcing them to have to enlist the help of another company. Below is a general overview of the services offered by Fortis Medical Billing Services of Cincinnati.
Audits of Your Current Billing State
Are things not adding up? Do you feel that your billing department is falling behind? Want to see whether the medical billing and coding company you partnered with is doing what they promised they would do?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, our in-depth medical audits can help you uncover the answers that you’re seeking. Not to mention, we might even be able to reveal issues that you may not have even known existed within your organization.
Claim Tracking/Denial Response
From responding to denials by correcting any errors that may have been made to tracking insurance claims as they’re filed, we can ensure that you have a straightforward approach to putting your finger on the pulse of things. By embracing this opportunity, your denial rate is sure to be minimal and you’ll be free from a lot of headaches often associated with medical billing.
Patient/Service Eligibility Verification
In order to have true assurance, you need to make sure that the services you provide are actually going to be something that you’ll be compensated for. Insurance companies will try to get out of paying, and the best way that they can do this is when the treatment you provide is deemed as something that’s not eligible.
By implementing a system that ensures the eligibility was verified beforehand will eliminate this risk in its entirety. Not only will you be able to verify that your patients are covered by their insurance company, but you’ll know whether the services provided will be covered as well.
Medical Billing/Coding for Specialized Practices
When you run a practice that has a rather specific specialization, the backend will come with its own unique requirements that aren’t only set forth by the government, but by the insurance companies that you bill as well. Our team has worked with a large number of practices with unique specializations, and we will develop a solution that embraces all of the aspects involved.
Outsourced Billing Services
You can outsource all your billing processes to Fortis Medical Billing of Cincinnati or you can just have us support your in-house billing department. We’re capable of providing comprehensive solutions on all scales. Not to mention, we will make the integration as seamless as possible to make it a good fit for you, your team, and your patients.
Explore Some of the Most Common Issues Among Cincinnati Healthcare Providers
When it comes down to the point of the matter, most issues that Cincinnati healthcare practices face with their revenue directly relates to how they are managing their billings. Below you’ll see some of the top issues that we have helped our clients overcome here at Fortis Medical Billing.
Being at Risk for Fraudulent Insurance Claims
Unbundling, billing for services not rendered, and improper codes are just a few of the top ways that healthcare practices have exposed themselves to fraudulent claims. A lack of training, medical billing technology, and team members that aren’t trained are some of the top causes of this. By implementing a system that ensures that billing is done right when sending a request for reimbursement to insurance companies, you can avoid this in its entirety.
Disorganized Patient Care Records
We’ve helped many clients roll out a more efficient approach to recordkeeping, and this allows them to access their patient records as well as records of treatment easily to see whether or not they have been paid out as well as for reference during future office visits.
Ignoring the Need for Compliant Billing Policies
Compliance is one of the most ignored aspects of medical billing, but it’s not something that’s ignored on purpose. It is simply due to not embracing it when billing policies are introduced which is why we help our clients embrace it when we roll out a system of processes for their billing needs. By doing this, we can minimize the risk of a federal audit and reduce the number of denials that they see.
Not Having Training in Place for Billing
Our training program can help your employees sharpen their billing skills and update them on the latest regulatory changes. If you’re looking to enhance the production of your in-house billing team, this is definitely a route that you’ll want to consider taking.
Stunting Growth Due to Not Harnessing Opportunities to Drive Revenue

Oftentimes, things go without being billed because there weren’t adequate billing policies in place to prevent it.
