The consequences of having an inadequate billing process in place can be detrimental, regardless of what kind of medical practice that you might be running. Here at Fortis Medical Billing, we help our clients understand the requirements that are set forth for them to follow as well as how they can modernize their billing practices for the best results possible. This prevents any legal liabilities while ensuring that your incoming reimbursements are at their peak.
A Premier Provider of Virginia Medical Billing Services
Anyone can say that they’re a leading provider of medical billing services, but very few can prove it. We are the kind of people that believes our track record says it all. From retaining 99% of our clients over the years to seeing to it that 95% of outstanding accounts are collected on, it’s safe to say that we have been able to produce results that only the best companies are able to produce.
Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without a team that consists of attorneys, former investigators, and experts in the field of medical billing who have been involved in complex situations involving compliance. We know that there are many companies out there for you to choose from, but we continue to be focused on delivering the ultimate solution to your front door.
Every Solution is Unique, Just Like the Clients We Serve
We understand that every type of medical specialty is different, and with that comes different ways that billing must be done. In order to make sure that our clients stay in full compliance and implement billing processes that work for them, we take into account federal regulations as well as the requirements set forth by the insurance companies for the services that they provide.
On top of embracing complete personalization, we ensure that our clients stay updated in this changing world. Doing so allows us to ensure that new regulations are embraced as they’re rolled out to ensure that there is no chance that they fall out of compliance.
A Look into Our Medical Billing Company Offerings in Virginia
This industry isn’t easy to make a name in, but it didn’t stop us from developing an expansive service offering to be our clients’ one-stop-shop for all of their medical billing and coding needs. Here are some of the services that are commonly needed by those who have come to Fortis over the years.
Accounts Receivable Management
A properly ran healthcare practice is one that does everything that it can in order to ensure that its accounts receivable is not left outstanding. Therefore, we provide our clients with complete accounts receivable management that embraces more collections to ensure that they’re properly reimbursed for the services that they have provided
Insurance Eligibility Verification
From start to finish, we will help you implement systems so that your employees can verify insurance eligibility immediately for both patients and the services that you provide them. This added step provides you with the opportunity to mitigate the risk of not being reimbursed due to a lack of eligibility.
Medical Audits for Healthcare Providers
Whether you want to ensure that you’re not going to have a negative experience if a federal audit is done on your medical billing practices, or you just want to expose the weaknesses that are holding you back, an in-depth audit can provide the insight that you need. Here at Fortis Medical Billing of Virginia, we have expert auditors standing by to dig in deep to the financials of your practice to ensure that medical billing and coding is done just the way that it should be.
Outsourced Medical Billing and Coding
Do things seem to be overwhelming when it comes to handling all the billing tasks within your facility or office? An outsourced medical billing and coding solution may provide you with the support that you need to make things a little bit more manageable. We will bring all the duties into our office to ensure that your can staff can focus on all of the other tasks that come with managing your medical practice efficiently.
Tracking Insurance Claims from Start to Finish
Knowing when your claims are filed and the status of being paid out is essential to knowing how your practice stands financially. We have processes that are implemented to allow for an easier way to track insurance claims and document any payouts received when your requests for reimbursement are sent to the insurance company.
Our focus stays on our client, not charging exorbitant rates.
We know that our success wouldn’t have ever been possible without doing what is right for our clients and this is something that won’t ever be forgotten. Even though we could do like many other companies have done and charge high rates from day one, we prefer to do things a little differently.
The onboarding process is seen as an opportunity to build a solid foundation to work from. One that produces the best results possible for each client that we work with. There is no sense in charging for this, so expect onboarding here at Fortis to come at no cost to you.
Protecting your revenue is exactly what we’re here to do.
Did you know that healthcare providers usually only receive 70%-90% of reimbursements for insurance claims that they file? It’s unfortunate, but it’s the harsh reality.
Here at Fortis Medical Billing of Virginia, we have refined the way that we do things to bring our average to 95% of insurance claims for our clients being paid out. Many medical billing and coding companies can’t even boast this high of an average.
We use the best technology, hire the best employees, and have some of the best processes to ever exist in the world of medical billing and coding. This is the real secret behind our success, and we want to pass the fruits of our labor onto you.
Here’s How We Have Simplified Revenue Cycle Management For Many
While we may have proven our point when it comes to providing elite revenue cycle management solutions for healthcare providers in the last section, we’re not done yet. Here’s a look from the top-down of the processes that contribute to this level of success that we continue to embrace daily.
Eligibility Is The First Step To Ensuring A Successful Collection
Don’t be the one stumbling when things kick-off. Take control of the situation right out of the gate by making sure that you have an eligibility verification system in place that will not only make sure your patients have current coverage but that the services provided are covered by their insurance company as well so that claims have zero chance of being denied due to a lack of eligibility. We can provide you with a solution to immediately verify eligibility that completely eliminates the need to do the verification manually (which we all know takes up too much time).
Documenting Charges Properly Gives Evidence That The Balance Is Owed
One of the biggest mistakes with medical billing is that charges aren’t captured the way they should be and at times they’re not captured at all. Throughout the course of treatment, we can put a system to work for you so that these charges are captured immediately and billed out as soon as they occur. Leaving you no room to let charges slip by you without being noticed.
Patient Registration Doesn’t Have To Be Complex, So We Simplify It
From collecting basic information to documenting everything else, patient registration is a straightforward process that serves as the concrete that’s used for the foundation. By implementing a system that keeps things direct you can easily access all the information that is needed throughout the billing process to contribute to running a more efficient practice.
Posting Payments On Patient Accounts Immediately Enhances Efficiency
Whether it’s a payment from a patient directly or a payment made by their insurance company, you should always make sure that it’s posted to their account immediately. This will ensure that accounts receivable isn’t lagging and that you know what needs to be collected on. We will implement a system to make this happen in the easiest manner possible.
We Keep Things Flowing In Real-Time And Take On All The Work Ourselves
Your practice works in real-time, and your billing department should be doing the same. It is the only way that you can ensure that things are running smoothly. Instead of being overworked, you can trust our team to use the most advanced technology in the world of medical billing to handle every aspect of billing for you.
