ICD-9 Updates Coming October 1, 2007
ICD-9 Updates Coming October 1, 2007Are you ready for the updates coming on October 1? There are a number of changes that will affect that way Medicare reimburses your practice for the services rendered as well as adding and retiring other codings. All of these changes will be effective for service dates after October 1.
You can avoid a lot of paperwork hassles and denials by making the jump to outsourcing your medical billing. Your third party partner will keep up with the ICD-9 coding changes, rules and regulations and if you choose, can even do an audit of your current medical billing methods and show you how you can realize a better reimbursement rate on your services rendered. Many physicians are shocked to learn they've been basically giving away nearly 25% of their reimbursable income through faulty medical billing filing practices.
If you're ready to leave the paper chase behind and free your staff up to service patients instead of figure out what items on your medical billing got reimbursed, it's time to outsource your medical billing and you'll never have to sweat another CMS update again.
