Many doctors in the field of acupuncture are of the opinion that acupuncture billing is a very difficult type of billing. This is largely because of the constant change in the codes and extensive differentiation in the treatment offered by different doctors.
Since the landscape of acupuncture billing is shifting, a good acupuncturist would be required to gain knowledge on the new codes on a monthly or maybe, weekly basis. But, who has the time? Will the acupuncturist pay attention towards his/her patients or spend time brushing up the changing codes? This is where medical billing service providers come in to offer relief to acupuncturists so that they can concentrate on what’s important – their patients.
Outsourcing medical billing responsibility enables improved patient care
Acupuncture billing can be quite tricky. Most providers accept only pain-related diagnosis while there are others who accept diagnosis including dizziness, pregnancy (like nausea), chronic conditions, asthma, dental procedures and so on. Also, some states consider acupuncture illegal. So, as an acupuncturist, you would have to deal with so many different state-specific rules and regulations, along with HIPAA compliance. The time spent on getting your billing right for streamlining your revenue cycle process is going to cost you valuable time that you could have otherwise spent on taking care of your patients’ needs. Keeping all of this in mind, it is safe to say that hiring an experience and expert third-party billing company is the best option. The billing company will handle everything, from coding to billing and maybe even practice management.
Partnering with third-party medical billing agency is profitable in the long-term
In terms of manpower, time and the potential mistakes that can be made leading to re-filling and appeals, acupuncture billing can be quite time-consuming and also costly. There are a number of acupuncturists who lose thousands of dollars every year trying to do everything on their own and you wouldn’t want to be on that list. By engaging the services of a third-party medical billing company, you will get the precision and experience needed at affordable prices leading to an increase in your overall revenue.
So, get in touch with a medical billing for acupuncture company and off-load your billing headaches.
