Rehab Billing Services California, CA
Components & challenges of Rehab Billing:
Although rehab is among the most commonly used line of care in the US, there is no separate insurance plan available for rehab billing which makes way for several ambiguities and challenges both for care providers and patients.
Not being covered by any exclusive insurance plan, rehab billing forms a part of an insurance plan and one that insurance providers prefer to be a little vague about concerning the amount of coverage the insured is entitled to for rehab treatment. What further adds to uncertainty about coverage is that states are not very specific about how much coverage is compulsory for insurance providers to give drug detox.
Partial coverage and ambiguity of insurance plans on rehab treatment – together leave care seekers as well as providers confounded, perhaps setting them up to start the process of preparing insurance claims for rehab treatments on a wrong note, which means inaccurately identifying the coverage of a patient eventually leading to waste of the time spent on preparing such claims and mounting account receivables.
However, even after entitlement or coverage has been identified accurately, a care provider post identification (accurate or otherwise) needs to follow a series of procedural activities, including documenting and applying appropriate codes, where a single miss-step can again revive the specter of eventual claim rejection.
