6 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Medical Billing Partner

6 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Medical Billing Partner

With ICD-10 coming in October, choosing a medical billing firm that you can trust to know the new system is something providers have to consider now more than ever. “6 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Medical Billing Partner” is an article by Physicians Practice discussing 6 important factors in determining whether a billing company is right for your practice…


“1. What qualifications and credentials should I look for?

The billing firm must have policies and procedures that maximize the efficiencies of practice work flow and minimize the time it takes to get paid. In the wake of the HIPAA Omnibus Rule, billing companies also must have a rigorous compliance program that ensures the privacy, security and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI).

Billing company leaders who orient their staff assiduously and support continuous education, keep their firm and your practice on the cutting edge of industry developments. For instance, billing professionals who have achieved certification in the Certified Healthcare Billing and Management Executive (CHBME) program, offered through the Healthcare Billing & Management Association (HBMA), demonstrate a biller’s commitment to further their education.”
