When it comes to Sacramento medical billing services, you may have a lot of options but this doesn’t mean that they’re the best options. At Fortis Medical Billing Company, we were founded by an attorney who specializes in federal compliance and medical billing practices.
We’ve refined our processes to directly benefit anyone who comes our way seeking the best medical billing service in California to keep our clients in full compliance with the laws and regulations governing the industry. Not only do we ensure compliance, but we also aim to deliver a positive impact by driving even more revenue from accounts receivable.
Outsourced US Based Medical Billing Services for Sacramento
Many companies refuse to keep things local, but here at Fortis, we are proud to help enrich the communities that we serve. This is why starting from Dallas and working our way across the United States, we have continued to employ an American-based team.
Not to mention, it gives us immediate insight into anything that has an impact on the world of medical billing. This has also given us the opportunity to enlist the help of some of the best in the business (from our team of in-house lawyers to consultants that specialize in compliance). With this advantage, we have quickly grown to become a leading provider of medical billing and coding services in Sacramento.
Our Approach Starts with a Custom-Tailored Solution
No clinic, hospital, or physician is exactly the same. Everyone comes with their own set of strengths and weaknesses, which we harness to design the most effective processes possible. That’s why our first step is getting to know our client and their operations individually.
We will be able to dig deep into the inner workings of your billing department, evaluate your current processes, and show you exactly how things can be improved by working with us. All while keeping you compliant with all applicable federal and local regulations that govern the world of medical billing.
The Most Comprehensive Portfolio of Sacramento Medical Billing Solutions
We pride ourselves on being able to adapt our services to the smallest and biggest needs of medical providers today. Our team is multi-faceted to ensure that we will fit seamlessly into the workings of your medical practice. Some of the most popular medical billing services offered in Sacramento include:
ARM (Accounts Receivable Management)
From collection processes designed to have your patients pay on their outstanding balances to make sure everything gets billed out as it should be, we offer all-around accounts receivable management solutions. It can be integrated with your current billing practices or it could be managed entirely within our offices to make sure you don’t have to deal with it.
Complete Billing Audits
If things don’t seem to be quite like they should be, you may want to consider having a complete medical billing audit done. This will detail where your bottom line is taking a hit, why insurance companies aren’t paying as they should be, and much more.
Usually when we onboard clients for a completely outsourced medical billing and coding solution, this is one of the first things we do. However, if you’re working with another medical billing and coding company in Sacramento, we’ll happily let you know if they’re doing everything that can be done to ensure that the revenue of your practice is being collected properly.
Any time that we uncover something during our audits, we present you with a proposed solution that you can have implemented yourself or you can have us take care of. A lot of the time we also uncover where medical billing departments are overlooking standard practices.
Full-Service Medical Billing Solutions
Running your billing department in-house can be tedious and expensive. That is why many of the leading healthcare providers in the US have chosen Fortis Medical Billing Services in Sacramento to handle all of their billing needs.
We simply implement a solution that will fit in with the patient care process and handle all of the technicalities of billing. You simply worry about providing the best level of care possible to your patients and we’ll take care of getting you compensated for the services provided.
Solutions for Specific Types of Specialties
Dentists, heart doctors, plastic surgeons, and many other types of medical professionals all have one thing in common, the billing side for each is completely different from one another. This means that no specialty is alike, and the billing for each one is different as well.
By working with a large variety of doctors and medical facilities, we have refined the way that we do things by adapting to specialty-specific services. This means that we will do whatever it takes to enhance your billing practices while embracing the way things are supposed to be done when billing for services within your area of specialty.
Verifying Patient and Service Eligibility
Sometimes insurance companies may stop paying for certain types of services, and other times a patient may no longer be covered. This is why we take the time to do the homework for you beforehand, so you don’t end up performing treatment that you might not be compensated for.
From implementing solutions that will help with the check-in process to staying on top of the coverage terms for services that you offer, we ensure that ineligibility is no longer a concern.
Our Onboarding Process Will Cost You Nothing (Only Pay for Results)
We know that there are medical billing companies all over the country that love requiring retainers or charging outrageous fees, but we refuse to be one of them. This is why we charge only for the results that we produce for our clients. Not only are you taking a risk by trusting us enough to hand all of your medical billing and coding needs, but we’re taking a risk because we must produce results before we even get paid a dime. How is that for a guarantee?
Eliminate the Headaches Associated with Medical Billing and Coding
Many times, a healthcare practice suffers and the cause (as well as impact) of it goes unnoticed because of a lack of attention to detail when it comes to the billing department. From collecting unpaid balances from your patients to understanding the cause of your denial rate, a lot of headaches can be eliminated by having a rock-solid billing process in place backed with the resources needed to make it happen.
We have noticed some of the top issues with medical billing and coding and listed them for you below alongside an in-depth explanation of each problem.
Disorganized Storage of Patient Records
This is the main part of your foundation, as it not only details the information about each patient but the treatment(s) that they have received as well. We can work with you and your team to ensure that a process is put into place that adds better organization of patient records while upholding the privacy requirements set forth by the federal government.
Fraudulent Insurance Claims Being Made
A lot of the time your practice could be filing fraudulent claims without you even knowing that it was an issue. Insurance companies tend to change up their procedures and requirements on a regular basis, posing more of a risk to your practice filing claims fraudulently. Our in-house medical billing specialists know how to bill and what to bill for, eliminating fraudulent claims.
Inadequate Training for Employees on Medical Billing
While medical billing may not be everyone’s favorite subject, it is one that directly affects the bottom line of your practice. By making sure your employees are trained on billing procedures properly, we can ensure that your team can deliver added value to the practice, time, and time again. We have worked with many clinics and hospitals across the country to provide the most beneficial training programs possible for their employees.
Non-Compliance with Regulations and Requirements
A lack of compliance with regulations set by the State of California and the US Government has led many down the road to paying some rather extensive penalties. This is why we don’t take the legal side of medical billing and coding lightly.
Our team is comprised of in-house attorneys who have dedicated their careers to understanding medical billing regulations, expert coders who ensure everything is done right, and top medical consultants to make sure we stay on top of everything we can to continue embracing success.
Overlooking Opportunities to Minimize Revenue Loss
Claims being filed improperly could lead to a high number of denials for reimbursement, and this is never a good thing regardless of how big your practice may be. This is why we dig deep into denials to uncover the reason that they were denied and resubmit the claims properly to increase the chances of being paid out on it by the insurance company responsible.
