Clinic Billing...Do you do your own?

Putting a code into software is not billing

Many physicians feel that billing their clinic is easy and it is not worth the cost to have someone else bill it for them, but is that true? It may only take a moment to enter that code into your software, but have you thought about what you might be missing? Sherritt Services Inc. is not a data entry company, we take pride in knowing the billing rules in all the provinces where we offer our services. Billing rules in Alberta lay out when services can be billed together and what your options are for billing when you have two (or more) services that you cannot bill together. It is impossible to maximize your billing within these rules without having a full understanding where to find each rule and how these rules work together.  We have often encountered physicians or clinic staff that have been billing for many years and do not understand how category codes affect your clinic billing, where to find them or even the fact that category codes exist. There is frequently a “greater benefit” rule when billing in clinic, but are you taking the time to calculate each time this situation arises? You may be coding your visits automatically out of habit because that is what you have always done, but are you always considering all your billing options? Do you know all possible options? Are you staying on top of all the rule changes as they come into effect?  There are many advantages to working with a team whose entire area of expertise is to know the rules for billing and how those rules work together. You may even find that the money you thought you were saving by coding your own billing was not a savings after all.
