Why You Should Outsource Your Medical Billing in Dermatology

Dermatology is all about “the skin you’re in,” and helping clients to love, care and manage their skin care health. Chances are, you’re an expert in the field. That means unique and specialized medical billing services catered to your exact requirements. Why is OUTsourcing your billing a great use of your IN-house resources? Simply put – it allows you the opportunity to focus on what you do best, while we do what we do best. Outsourcing works well because we work well for you!

The Top 5 Benefits of Outsourcing Medical Billing:

Outsourcing medical billing for healthcare organizations makes good business sense because it ensures:

1. Lower Admin Costs

Your nursing staff signed up to help care for patients. Even your Office Admin team probably plays a central role in greeting and assisting patients while managing medical supplies, ordering equipment, scheduling patients and other related office duties. Outsourcing medical billing means your staff aren’t chasing down bad debt from former patients or filling out mountains of paperwork before an insurance company will either pay your invoice or deny it. If you have to appeal a denied payment that’s even more costly time and resources dedicated to something other than patient care.

In turn, this will lead to:

2. Improved Customer Service and Patient Care

Your patients are looking to you and your team to address their health care concerns. A patient worried that a mole has turned cancerous needs care, calm and focussed attention. When you’re busy billing – it’s actually a distraction. Focus on your patient’s health and we’ll focus on getting you paid.

Outsourcing billing automatically results in:

3. Improved Cash Flow & Improved Process Efficiencies

You are a dedicated skin care professional, a licensed medical doctor, not a collections agency. Medical billing isn’t easy. There are constantly changing codes, new insurance requirements, different companies with different deductibles and billing submissions processes. At DCBC – billing is all we do. We know the codes, we know the requirements and the insurance companies and their specific expectations. Our staff receives 40 hours of updated training annually and are always learning on the job. We’ll get you paid – on time.

Confidentiality is assured with:

4. Compliancy and Safety

Outsourcing medical billing ensures compliancy is guaranteed. Trained billing professionals are the experts; they have the upgraded computer equipment and software, and are mandated to meet all regulatory requirements. They are HIPPA compliant and have strict safeguards in place to protect patient data. You have other responsibilities to your patients and need to focus your care and attention on their wellbeing.

Finally, it’s important that by outsourcing your medical billing you know exactly how it benefits you and why your practice needs dedicated billing specialists. A company like Derm Care Billing Consultants can answer those questions with our focus on:

5. “Triple R Service” – Reporting, Receivables and Recovery

We won’t just fill out forms for you. We provide reporting services that will keep you up to date on the financial “big picture;” helping you forecast future costs, stay on top of fee schedules and by analyzing unpaid claims to see how you can recover funds. Whether you need daily, monthly, quarterly or annual reporting we can provide it. We’ll manage receivables for you and recover old accounts receivables when you just don’t have the in-house time or resources to commit to this sometimes lengthy and arduous process.

Medical billing can be complicated but it doesn’t have to be. Outsourcing medical billing for healthcare organizations like yours, a busy and demanding dermatology practice, just makes good business sense and allows for the success of your practice. Focus more on your patients and less on the paperwork yet STILL enjoy improved cash flow, safeguarded patient information and improved customer service. It is possible with outsourcing medical billing – a great idea and an excellent use of your current resources!
