Radiation Oncology Billing Services Utah, UT

Components & challenges of Radiation-Oncology billing

Cancer being among the most common ailments in the US, radiation oncology is one of the most used medical services in the US with care providers of all types (independent practitioners to hospitals) involved in it. This means a sizable amount of medical resources (money and medical effort) spent on healthcare in the US is claimed by radiation oncology. Alas, most part of it goes unrealized given the demanding nature of insurance procedures.

The radiation oncology insurance procedure involves patient registering, charge entry, claim generation and transmission, payment posting, making appeals for denials and incorrect claims and collection management – and electronic submission of claims to be HIPPA compliant.

Unfortunately, successful reimbursement of a radiation oncology episode requires more than careful adherence to policies, accurate handling of details and ability to transfer data electronically, it also needs:

  • Thorough understanding of how much coverage Medicare plan entitles you to (there are three of them Plan A, B and C)
  • Establishing whether the oncology treatment was medically necessary and recommended by a licensed physician

Our Utah medical billers and coders use their experience and professional expertise to make your practice receive its rightful payments. They are bent on maximizing your practice’s reimbursement and are dedicated to stay ahead of the constantly changing healthcare insurance industry.

  • Electronic as well as paper claims filing

  • Generating Monthly financial report

Outsourcing to MBC:

MBC’s billers and coders possess a comprehensive knowledge of radiation oncology billing and coding procedures. Our years of experience in handling intricacies of radiation therapy billing and coding procedures translates into a very sophisticated level of understanding of the diseases involved in radiation therapy versus the insurance procedures applicable to them.

We have been able to bring down claim denial rates for care providers across all the state of the US through accurate handling of data and rigorous follow-ups done in a methodical manner. Our quality consciousness is responsible for reduction in claim denials. Both during and after preparation of claims, we put them through various cycles of quality checks to make sure that they are completely error free when submitted.

Our service models are flexible, so that you can choose a model that perfectly fits your needs and setup. We offer two types of models:

  • RCM consulting
  • Outsourcing

Our consulting model involves a thorough study of your revenue management system to help identify areas of revenue leakage, outdated software applications and training needs. By helping you address these areas our RCM service will ensure a smooth revenue management process capable of handling the dynamics of radiation therapy insurance requirements and reduced rejected claims.

However, if you don’t have an in-house billing and coding team, you can ship out your entire billing and coding responsibilities to MBC. Our outsourcing model includes the entire range of billing and coding activities starting from identifying insurance eligibility of the patient to submission of claims and post submission follow-ups.

We provide services across all phases of claim preparation and submission:

  • Charge Entry : Our Charge Entry (CE) services ensure error free claim submission through verification of patient demographics, medical codes, DOS, POS, provider information, units, modifiers as also submission of claims to clearing houses and more. CE also involves random quality checks as part of audits.
  • Payment Posting : Our billers and coders can work on the most advanced electronic remittance scenarios, including denials, underpayments, overpayments, multiple adjustments, automatic cross-over, secondary remittance, reversals, etc.
  • Account Receivable : We reduce your claim rejection rates and ensure a timely payment of your services by following up with insurance officials ensuring that you enjoy improved revenues.

Medicalbillersandcoders.com is a national network with our team spread across all states of the US with each state represented by billers and coders familiar with state-specific exceptions. This helps us to account for the fact that the rules applicable across the US are not uniform.
