How to Choose a Good Medical Billing Company

By Sasha Ann

A medical billing company provides invaluable support to medical professionals caught up in a hectic work schedule, but making the right choice can be quite challenging. With healthcare providers increasingly opting for medical billing services, the number of medical billing companies has increased. When outsourcing, you should always ensure that the company you choose can meet your specific requirements.

Not only must the medical billing service provider handle claim submissions and financial management, but also ensure that reimbursements are obtained in a timely manner. Various billing services are offered by these companies. A professional medical billing company would provide services such as patient invoicing, generation and submission of claims, making reports, carrier follow-up and analyzing the reports. Many companies also take care of medical coding, credentialing and transcription.

Medical Billing Services — Factors to Consider

  • Always check whether the company is HIPAA compliant.
  • Ask the company how they safeguard the security of patient information entrusted to them.
  • Ask them about the number of years they have been in this field.
  • Always make sure to understand their business strategy.
  • Know about the number of clients for whom they work. This is important because there are possibilities of your work being hampered due to other clients.
  • Always have a proper awareness of the benefits that the company would offer.
  • Evaluate the benefits that are provided.
  • Make sure that the company can complete the task entrusted within your required turnaround time.
  • Know about the software that they use for medical billing.
  • Ask them whether they are flexible in the use of software.
  • Ask them about the percentage of accuracy that they will offer in their work. Sometimes, if there are errors, it may lead to claim denials or delays in payments.
  • Complete analysis of the cost should be done. There should not be any hidden costs later.
  • Always, the basic information of employees should be noted down such as number of employees and also their certification.
  • Check whether the company uses the latest technology for performing the function.
  • Also make sure to check their business plan in case there are epidemic diseases, disasters or emergencies.

A reputable medical billing company usually offers a free trial of its services to help clients evaluate them. Make use of any such offer and find out more about the way they work, whether they are true to their commitments and so on. Ideally, you should receive cost savings of 30 – 40%. If you are satisfied with their offerings, go ahead and sign a contract.
