The medical billing process begins with the pre-registration of patients. It’s time to collect personal information, insurance, and medical information about prospective patients. It is very important that this information is captured and incorporated into the computer system accurately for future contacts with patients and for successful claims payments.
The use of the registration checklist is very helpful. The income cycle and success of the practice depend on the accuracy of this information. You can get a consultation from the certified bulk billing doctor online via https://epfamilyclinic.com.au/home/bulk-billing/.
By gathering patient insurance information, we can establish financial responsibility for the visit. This is the second step in the medical billing process. Information such as Insurance Company Name, Insured Name (not always patient), type of policy, ID number, and telephone number for insurance companies is vital information for successful payment of claims.
It is important for the front-end staff to find out which insurance companies participate in practice and which you don’t follow. Many practices participate with one specific plan in insurance companies but not others. For many practices, claims and insurance payments are mostly income cycles.
This is the blood of your practice life. Collecting every dollar that your practice has the right to is very important for your financial health. Obtain insurance information before your patient arrives to appoint the first meeting they allow for feasibility and benefits verification, obtain required references and authorization, information that can be reduced. This information must be accurate. Inaccuracy will lead to rejection or rejection and will cost your practice money.
