With growing concern of fraud, abuse and the constraints of managed care, you need to seek the help of a healthcare professional who can:

  • Reduce and eliminate billing problems
  • Improve Coding efficiency
  • Evaluate your practice for continued growth

Medical Billing/ and Documentation Audit Services

A billing/compliance audit is an in-depth analysis of a medical practice’s billing, coding, and documentation procedures. It is done to determine if the medical practice is following the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services and other payer’s guidelines for appropriate, medically necessary, billing.

This educational review will address any deficit or weakness within the billing area that may expose the practice to problems with government and other payers. The review addresses coding accuracy and can help determine under-coding as well as over coding. Verbal and/or written reports are provided. These reviews are entirely educational and confidential.

Medical Billing Review Services

A billing review is an in-depth analysis of a medical practice’s billing, coding, and follow- up, collection and accounts receivable procedures. Most all reviews result in not only enhanced reimbursements to the practice, but new efficiencies from procedure modification. Work flow of the billing staff and an assessment of the positions, job tasks, and functions of the billing staff is a major component of the billing review. Want to learn more?

Work Flow and Medical Practice Operations Consultation

A work flow consultation is a review of relevant data to assess practice operations including:

  • Patient volume statistics
  • Practice production
  • Collections
  • Overhead expenses
  • Non-physician staffing
  • Employee salaries
  • Financial and operational reporting .

Physician Practice Evaluations

A practice evaluation is an operational and financial study of an existing medical practice. This study will provide the physicians or the hospital with information vital to the growth and productivity of the practice.

This evaluation also provides a comparative analysis of the practice to other practices of the same specialty nationally. Encounter or case data is reviewed and compared as well as financial ratios. Staffing efficiency and work-flow is a major component of a practice evaluation, as is review of the reimbursement area.

A practice evaluation will allow a practice to realize operating and billing efficiencies that will have a positive impact on the bottom line. A practice evaluation includes the following components .

Fee Schedule Consulting and Analysis
