doctor working on billing

In July of 2017, Medical Economics definitively concluded that, “If you operate a medical practice, you should be outsourcing.” They reported that outsourcing can be implemented to cut internal costs, focus employee time on crucial care delivery, and free up time for patient care management. The vast majority of providers are shown to have a positive feeling about their outsourcing relationships.

Let’s discuss
outsourcing medical billing.

The key benefits of outsourcing your medical billing services versus handling them in-house include:

[1] Lower In-House Operating Costs: Outsourcing eliminates the need for additional layers of office staff inefficiently working the claims process. Office space is freed up, computer and overhead costs are reduced, and oversight roles are reduced.

[2] Faster Claims Processing Leads to Improved Cash Flow: By submitting claims on a more regular basis and eliminating errors, the practice is able to realize an increase in approved claims on the first submission. This increased accuracy results in faster payments. Outsourcing medical billing improves cash flow projection capabilities, and reduces nightmares about cash availability.

[3] Rely on Industry Specialists: There is no need to stay on top of insurance industry changes with outsourcing. The outsourcer is constantly updating the process with insurance companies and is a specialist in submitting claims that get paid. The outsourcer also takes on the responsibility for assuring patient confidentiality.

[4] Lower Per-Patient Costs: An individual practice must spread the cost of billing over the existing patient base, whereas an outsourcing billing company can distribute their investment over a much wider patient base. This results in economies of scale, which are passed on to the individual client practice.

[5] Financial Control: A medical practice is a business which cannot afford to lose control of its financial foundation. It is wasteful to spend too much time on activities that do not generate practice revenue or patient satisfaction. The provider doesn’t have to worry about “mundane” issues like entry errors or reimbursement issues that can end up costing big money if not addressed promptly.

[6] Increase Profits: Partnering with a company to outsource medical billing can provide a significant boost to practice profit. The practice gets paid faster which lowers carrying and borrowing costs, less manpower is required to achieve better results, no advanced training is required, and no technology updates are needed.

[7] Patient Satisfaction: Patient Sat is Where’s it’s At – Patients will enjoy the enhanced ability of you and your team to provide more on patient care than be preoccupied with office responsibilities. Also your patients will be able to worry less about dealing with claims and concentrate fully on getting well.

[8] Less Stress for You! Less stress sounds great, doesn’t it? You will gain peace or mind when this ofter overwhelming task or medical billing is being handled by a trusted team can be a massive source of stress relief for the healthcare provider. There is no longer any stress worrying about billing staff turnover, administrative costs, cash flow “gotchas” because of slow claims payments.
