How Can OMG Medical Billing Benefit Your Practice?

Medical billing is a complicated process, that if not done correctly, can lead to a loss of revenue and underpayment. Outsourcing medical billing can help eliminate some of these losses. There are several benefits to using a medical billing company.

It has been said that 30% of all medical services are never reimbursed to the health care provider. This is due to poor follow-up to insurance companies and to patients themselves for medical practices. Too often, medical office personnel are stretched to their limits. They are responsible for medical billing, advertising, scheduling, and customer service. Medical billing companies can alleviate some of this stress by taking the responsibility of billing away from the office so they can focus more on the customers themselves.

Another benefit to using a medical billing company is accuracy of claims. By outsourcing medical billing, it means that professionals who specifically specialize in medical billing will handle claims. Errors tend to be made when a person is required to do multiple tasks. Many medical billing companies even electronically run the claims through a system that checks for errors. This prevents many billing headaches.

By outsourcing medical billing there may be room for you to cut back on employee salaries and expenditures. Less total man-hours will be needed to do the same workload. This means, you either cut back on each employee’s hours or eliminate workers all together. Either way, outsourcing medical billing will save your practice money. This will also cause less cost for employee health insurance and workers compensation coverage as well as sick/vacation days.

Make sure your company is not getting reimbursed for only 70% of services rendered. In order to financially utilize your in-house employees more efficiently and effectively outsourcing medical billing is the answer for you.
