We Focus on Reimbursement
Oncology billing processes can be quite cumbersome for physicians and patients. The chemotherapies and radiology treatments all sum up to make a very hefty amount, so many oncologists want the coverage for cancer treatment to be affordable enough to ensure that physicians maintain a healthy financial status. To ensure that you get reimbursed for your services, our billing team can help you:
• Complete treatment notes along with chemo, infusion, and hydration – When billing for a diagnosis, many physicians often leave out negative findings because they consume a lot of time. However, tests and examinations for diagnosing negative findings are part of the services provided. Leaving these out could mean the physician gets paid less. We take the time to make sure all notes are complete to match chemo, infusion, and hydration services.
• List accurate units of drugs – There are many factors involved in listing the number of units relative to drugs. A common billing mistake is documenting drugs with incorrect drug units. We focus on HCPCS specific billing units to assure that you get reimbursed for all drugs used.
• Bill with accurate place of service – The place of service is an important element in the oncology billing process and reimbursement. The place of service provides essential information regarding the types of services given. We make sure that your billing is coded appropriately to cover your place of service.
The oncology billing company you use should increase your reimbursements. Whether you own a private practice or work in a group, we aim to get you a 35 percent claims adjustment rate.
