Outsourcing Your Medical Billing In Georgia

You have a busy medical practice in Georgia and your staff is pushed the limit just servicing the phones and the patients. Forget about submitting your medical billing claims in a timely manner, and when your claims get rejected from time to time because your staff doesn’t have time to keep up with all the coding changes that happen…well you get the idea.

So, now you’re thinking about outsourcing your medical billing to an outside source. That’s a big decision if you’ve never done it before. You may have even heard horror stories from other physicians who have outsourced their medical billing with not so positive results. Part of that disappointment is not knowing what to expect. If you know going in what to expect from your medical billing company that your outsource your billing to, you will be pleased with the level of service they provide you.

First of all, see how much billing your office actually produces; ask your potential medical billing partner if they can handle the amount of billing your office generates. If you are a physician that regularly uses one diagnosis code on your billing but renders multiple services; your staff may be used to deciphering your coding, but to be fair, make sure your medical billing partner knows this so they can service you accurately and get your claims completely instead of partially paid.

Ask your potential medical billing partner if they will handle the occasional claim rejection, if they will handle you A/R, and will they handle credentialing of your practice to other insurances? Are they aware of special regulations Georgia has for medical billing? Once you find out exactly what your medical billing outsourcing partner can do for you, you’ll wonder why you didn’t outsource your billing sooner.
