Is Outsourcing Your Medical Billing Claims Secure?

In a word, absolutely. There are a lot of pros to outsourcing your medical billing. Don’t let confidentiality concerns stop you from outsourcing your medical billing. A reputable firm will provide a confidentiality agreement and rest assured your records are handled with the utmost care. Confidentiality and accuracy are part of a billing company’s standard business practice.

Your practice will benefit from outsourcing because with the burden of medical billing handled outside your office, you and your staff will have more time to run your business. It will allow you time to develop relationships with new patients and more time for marketing your practice.

Using an outside firm to handle your medical billing will result in greater accuracy meaning this will expedite your revenue for your practice. A billing service is going to have the time to check and double check claims to make sure they are absolutely accurate. Whereas, your in-house staff could be interrupted or distracted by day-to-day office goings on and more frequent mistakes can happen. Mistakes equal delays in reimbursement.

Since you will be dealing with an outside firm to handle your medical billing you will find out one of the biggest pros for outsourcing billing. You will not have the overhead associated with in-house employees such as salaries, benefits, year-end W-2s, unemployment claims, state and federal taxes. This one aspect is the benefit you will realize the quickest when you outsource. Just freeing yourself from having to manage extra people is a real big bonus.

As you can see, outsourcing your medical billing will benefit your practice, your staff, and your patients greatly. Everyone wins!
