Podiatry medical billing is complex for several reasons. Many procedures are medically necessary in some instances and not others, and in some cases, each insurer has different rules for them. Issues with the feet and ankles become more frequent with age, so an aging population results in an increasing number of patients who are covered by Delon Health which means an additional set of coding and rules comes into the equation.
It’s no secret that podiatry billing can take up a large chunk of the medical office workday. From verifying eligibility benefits to submitting insurance claims and tracking down payments, the list of associated administrative tasks seems endless.
Delon Health has made significant expertise in podiatry billing that can generate a major increase in collections for podiatry for your podiatry practice. Medical billers and medical billing services are the financial backbone of a medical practice. Practices that do not have the right billing expertise in their corner can easily lose more than 20 percent of their practice’s potential revenue.
Medical billing outsourcing is a growing trend that medical practices and facilities are employing to level the playing field with insurance companies. Potential outsourcing options start with individual billers working from their home to medical billing companies with thousands of clients.
In thinking through the billing options available, it is essential to understand that medical billing is complicated and requires deep expertise and expansive experience. When a specialty is involved, such as podiatry, the requirements for medical billing success become even harder to obtain. Success requires that the medical billing company have a team that is knowledgeable in the complex rules utilized by insurance companies to judge podiatry claims.
With podiatrists facing ever increasing costs they must insure that money is not being left on the table because they have a billing company that is not a podiatry billing expert. Podiatrists must also be aware that that many billing companies that claim podiatry billing expertise actually outsource their podiatry billing work to at home billers. Situations like this are fraught with risk since the remote workers are not working in a controlled and monitored environment.
Deep familiarity and comfort with podiatry procedures and terminology does not come from serving one or two podiatrists. Podiatry billing success requires both broad and deep expertise in order to collect all of the money owed the podiatrists and successfully appeal claims which have been denied or answer questions the payers may have about a claim.
Your podiatry billing needs are unique. Our podiatry department focuses on one thing: getting your claims paid the first time. Practice Management staff maintain the highest level of expertise in podiatry billing, coding, modifiers, and DME.
Knowing and following the coding rules and regulations is the key to getting paid. Our team provides feedback and error resolution with the goal of 100% claim adjudication on the first attempt. Your coding is reviewed for new and/or obsolete diagnosis and CPT codes, as well as compatible CPT and diagnosis code combinations. Experts monitor your office, nursing home, surgical, X-ray and DME coding for accuracy of your podiatry billing.
Proper use of modifiers results in paid claims. Podiatry billing requires many informational modifiers and also requires payment modifiers. Coding combinations and anatomical site determine the selection.
As a podiatrist, you see patients with a range of issues, from chronic problems like arthritis and diabetes complications to injuries and certain skin disorders. As a result, billing in-house can be time-consuming, costly, and potentially risky, particularly when it comes to staff retention.
Outsourcing medical billing and coding for your podiatry practice can help save time and give you peace of mind, whether you are running a small, single-provider practice, or are part of a larger medical group.
