MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING SERVICES
Faster claim settlement at reduced costs
Between scheduling a visit and receiving payments for care provided, a lot goes on. Medical coding and billing is one such thing. Medical coding, at its most basic is transforming descriptions of medical diagnoses and procedures into industry-standard codes. Medical billing is submitting claims to insurance companies for reimbursements. It sounds simple enough, but can get complex. Maintaining accuracy and compliance in both of these areas is crucial to avoid claims denials. We at Scribe4Me provide high quality medical coding and billing services to help achieve compliance, prevent denials and stay financially protected. Partner with us and we will help you maximize your revenue and improve your bottom line.
Scribe4Me’s Medical Coding and Billing Process
Client requirement analysis
We believe that determining the exact requirements helps improve client satisfaction through a better coding and billing experience. That is why, we gather client requirements including the specialties covered, desired turnaround times, types of files and formats required and the reports to be generated on a regular basis.
Receive, download and allocate
We receive scanned copies of patient charts and related clinical information from our clients through our secure FTP site. Our coding team then downloads these files and allocates them to the respective coders for review.
Our coders review the patient charts to ensure that adequate details about treatments and diagnoses are included. During this stage of the coding process, our coders will analyze and interpret data from a wide range of sources such as, clinical notes, laboratory results, and radiology reports, in order to identify all services and procedures provided during the patient encounter.
As a next step our medical coders will connect with healthcare providers to discuss any missing details or inconsistencies. This helps to clarify any aspects of the clinical notes and patient records that are unclear in order to ensure accurate coding.
Using a standardized coding system, such as ICD-10 or CPT, our experienced coders assign codes to the diagnoses, procedures, and services provided during the patient encounter. They also make sure that the codes assigned are accurate and in accordance with coding guidelines and policies.
We perform a multi-level quality check to spot and eliminate errors and improve specificity. Our QA team double-checks the quality of the coded charts to ensure that the assigned codes accurately reflect the services provided and comply with all coding regulations and guidelines.
Once the coded charts are quality checked, our medical billing team creates claims while adhering to rules that are specific to payers and locations.
All claims are put through a rigorous, multilevel quality check process. Claims audit ensures completeness and accuracy of information, compliance with the latest industry standards and that the right diagnosis and procedure codes have been assigned.
Transmit and submit claims
The claims are sent to the transmission department along with all necessary information and supporting documents for a final check. The claims are then printed and sent out to the respective insurance providers for final settlement.
