Our Medical Billing Services for Nephrology Practices and Practitioners
Managing the billings of your nephrology practice requires time, expertise, effort, and time. Reducing your A/R collection period and denial rate begins at the coding phase and ensuring that you correctly code your billings requires an extensive understanding of the varying facility, expert, risk adjustment factor, and other coding needs and rules that apply. We give our customers the expertise they require to efficiently and effectively bill with services such as:
Revenue Cycle Management
A practical revenue cycle management requires an extensive understanding of your practice’s unique features. Answers to revenue cycle management will not provide a similar degree of outcomes as a custom-made program to your nephrology practice. At Fortis Medical Billing, we work with our customers so we can deeply understand their challenges and develop creative and targeted ways to overcome them.
Coding and Billing
We help nephrology practices across the nation to set-up compliant coding and billing policies and procedures. We also help our customers in integrating these policies and procedures into their patient care and management practices. This is for purposes of streamlining the medical billing process. Coding and billing are essential to running a successful practice and should, therefore, work in the background seamlessly. We provide both ongoing and first consulting services created to ensure that our customer’s billing programs are assets rather than liabilities.
We offer two different nephrology auditing services. First, if you wish to move to another billing firm, we can audit your new billing policies and procedures to determine where and how they are lacking. We also review the outstanding and current billings of your firm. This is to find out the reasons behind the denial of the claims and why it is taking longer for your practice to receive reimbursements. Second, as the provider of your nephrology billing services, we can audit the results of our operations. This is to ensure that your practice’s billing efforts are running efficiently, maintain accountability, and identify shortcomings in the internal billings of your staff’ practices.

Nephrology is a complex specialty when it comes to correct billing and coding for services. Renal patients, who might be in different renal disease phases, often need several interventional treatments and services such as kidney transplants, dialysis, and ultrasound. Detailed, precise records, billing and coding, are crucial to submitting a clean renal claim that will receive the reimbursement without worry about denial. Due to our ever-existing changes in the practice, you require a nephrology medical billing service that understands insurance and government regulations. Problems such as billing for hemodialysis and peritoneal as well as the right utilization of conditioner in attaching procedures are too crucial and complicated to the billing process to be handed over to inexperienced nephrology billing firms. We believe that your nephrology practice deserves to have a team of billing and coding experts who are experienced in the field of nephrology practices. While ICD-10 codes eliminate most of the guesswork from correctly coding procedures, treatments, and diagnoses, they only become effective if the individual using them have many years of experience and are trained. Our certified coders are assigned every account so your claims are attended in detail. This results in a more complete and faster reimbursement to your nephrology practice.
