Improving Your Allergy Physician Practice’s Revenue Cycle and Bill with Confidence
A physician managing a successful allergy practice presents several unique challenges. In particular, for many allergists, immunologists, and allergy practice administrators, one of the most daunting challenges involves effectively and efficiently managing private insurance and Medicaid billings in order to maintain a consistent cash flow and build a stable and profitable practice. In particular, many Allergy and Immunology practices find themselves frustrated with the number of claims being denied and the length of time it takes for payment to be received when claims are accepted. Many Allergy and Immunology Specialists can find themselves disheartened by the time and effort billings requires from their team. Likewise, many allergy practice professionals are unsure of how to begin easing these frustrations.
Whether you are in the midst of starting a new allergy and immunology practice or your practice has been operating for years, there are steps you can – and should be – taking in order to manage your private insurance and Medicaid billings the correct way. At Fortis Medical Billing, we have the knowledge, insight, and experience you need in order to successfully manage your billings.
About Fortis Allergy and Immunology Billing Company
Who would you prefer taking care of your allergy practice? Would you like your practice’s coding duties handed over to an entry-level employee who has little or no education or work experience in the allergy and immunology field? Or, would you prefer to have a team of seasoned professionals in your corner? Each of whom can bring decades of pertinent medical billing experience to the table?
At Fortis Allergy and Immunology Billing Services, we offer the latter. Our medical billing company is composed of doctors, medical specialists, auditors, and former FBI agents who have devoted their working lift to understanding and working with the medical billing industry as well as the myriad of complex laws and regulations that apply to it. For example, Dr. Stephen Taylor is a member of our staff, he is both a registered nurse and a physician. He has been working in the industry of federal medical billing compliance for over 25 years. Each member of staff at Fortis Medical Billing has an extensive understanding of the crucial information you need to keep in mind when making decisions that impact your allergy practice’s finances and risk. We take pride in working as a team to deliver efficient, effective, and custom-tailored medical billing solutions to each and every one of our clients ensuring that our clients are paid in a timely manner and that their time and energy is used efficiently when it comes to medical billing.
Our Medical Billing Services for Allergy Practices and Practitioners
Managing your allergy practice’s billings takes time, effort, and experience-based knowledge. To reduce your denial rate and A/R collection time one must first examine the coding stage. Ensuring that you code your billings accurately requires a in-depth understanding of the coding rules and requirements that apply including, but not limited to, professional, facility, and risk adjustment factor (RAF) coding regulations. We share with our clients the critical knowledge they need to manage their billings efficiently and effectively with services including:
Billing & Coding – At Fortis Medical Billing, we help allergy practices across the country establish compliant billing and coding practices and policies. In addition to this, we assist our clients with integrating these procedures into their patient care and management practices so that the medical billing process is as economical as possible. While both billing and coding are important steps involved in running a successful allergy practice, they should ideally be operating seamlessly in the background, with minimal time and effort from your already busy employees. We provide both initial and continual consulting services with the aim of ensuring that our clients’ billing programs are efficient assets as opposed to liabilities.
Auditing – Fortis Medical Billing offers two different types of allergy and immunology billing audit services. Foremost, if you are contemplating changing billing companies, we can examine your current billing practices in order to discern where and in what ways they can be improved. We can also audit your company’s recent and outstanding private insurance and Medicaid billings to resolve why claims are being denied, as well as why it is taking so long for your practice to receive payment. Second, as your allergy billing services provider, we are more than happy to thoroughly audit the results of our own work in order to maintain transparency and accountability as well as to determine shortcomings within your internal billing personnel’s procedures, and ensure that your allergy and immunology practice’s billing efforts are operating with maximum efficiency.
Revenue Cycle Management – Effective revenue cycle management, otherwise known as RCM, requires experience and expertise in regards to aspects of your individual practice. One size fits all RCM “solutions” cannot possibly offer the same quality or quantity of results as a system that is custom-tailored to your specific allergy and immunology practice. At Fortis Medical Billing, we work side y side with our clients to understand the specific challenges their practice is facing and to create innovative and targeted strategies explicitly designed to overcome these challenges.
