Improving Your Burn Trauma Practice’s Revenue Cycle and Billing with Confidence
Managing a successful burn or trauma practice involves several distinct challenges. Quite often critical care, burn, or trauma team members and practice administrators can find the management of private insurance and Medicaid billings to be one of these challenges. This, in turn, affects their ability to maintain regular cash flow and build a secure and lucrative practice. More specifically, many burn, trauma, and critical care practices find themselves struggling with the number of insurance claims that are denied. As well as, when the claims are accepted, the length of time it takes to receive the payment. Many burn and trauma specialists can find themselves frustrated by the amount of time and effort billings requires from their team. Likewise, many Burn, Trauma, and Critical Care specialists are not certain how to begin tackling these challenges.
Whether you are in the process of opening a new burn, trauma, or critical care practice or your practice has been caring for patients for years, there are steps that you should be taking to ensure that you are managing your private insurance and Medicaid billings correctly. At Fortis Medical Billing, we have the knowledge, insight, and experience you need to successfully manage your billings.
About Fortis Burn and Trauma Billing Services
Whom would you like to have caring for your burn or trauma practice? Would you like your business’ coding duties to be the responsibility of an entry-level employee who has little experience with burn, trauma, or critical care? Or, would you prefer to have a team of accomplished and expert professionals working with years of relevant medical billing experience handling the coding duties of your operation?

Our medical billing company is made up of physicians, surgeons, medical specialists, nurses, auditors, and former FBI agents who have devoted years towards comprehending and working within the medical billing industry as well as understanding the multitude of complicated laws and regulations that apply to it.

Our Medical Billing Services for Burn/Trauma Practices and Practitioners
Managing your burn, trauma, or critical care practice’s billings takes energy, time, and expertise. To minimize your denial rate and A/R collection time, the coding stage needs to be examined. Coding your billings accurately requires a detailed understanding of the coding regulations and requirements that apply including professional, facility, and risk adjustment factor (RAF) coding rules. At Fortis Medical Billing, we offer our clients the critical knowledge they need to manage their private insurance and Medicaid billings with services including:
Billing & Coding– At Fortis Medical Billing, we help burn and trauma practices across America create compliant billing procedures. Moreover, we assist our clientele with the integration of these procedures into their pre-existing patient care and management practices so that the medical billing process is as straightforward and time-efficient as possible. Both billing and coding are important steps involved in running a successful burn, trauma, or critical care practice. This being said, the procedures required to maintain billing and coding practices should ideally be optimized in such a way that they require minimal employee time and effort. We provide both initial and continual consulting services focused on ensuring that our clients’ billing programs are positively contributing to their business.
Auditing– Fortis Medical Billing offers two separate types of burn, trauma, or critical care billing audit services depending on your practice’s needs. First, if you are considering changing your billing company, we can audit your current billing procedures to determine where they can be improved upon and in what ways. We are also able to audit your company’s recent and outstanding private insurance and Medicaid billings to determine why claims are being denied, as well as what can be done to increase the speed at which payments are approved and received. Second, as your burn or trauma billing services provider, we are eager to thoroughly audit our own work to ensure transparency and accountability as well as to determine areas with space for improvement within your internal billing procedures.
Revenue Cycle Management– Effective revenue cycle management or RCM, requires an awareness of your individual practice. Universally applicable RCM “solutions” simply cannot offer the same standard of results that a custom-tailored system can. At Fortis Medical Billing, we work alongside our clients to gain an understanding of the specific challenges their practice is facing and to develop creative and targeted strategies to help clients overcome these challenges.
