Questions To Ask A Medical Billing Company Before Hiring Them
Outsourcing medical billing needs makes sense for many medical practices because of the several benefits that come with it. However, finding the right billing service can be time consuming. Here are questions you might want to ask your potential medical billing company.
How long have you been working in this field and how many years of experience do your billers have? Although a great coder can be successful with any specialty, if you can find a company with billers experienced in your specialty, it should weigh heavily in your decision.
How HIPAA compliant are you? No physician wants claims and patient data being handled by a novice. Ask specific questions about the company’s business associate agreements, email security, fax security, data security, document destruction, and equipment destruction.
What types of reports will I receive? Find out everything you can about the types of reports you’ll be getting and their frequency. Ask to see a sample of daily, monthly and quarterly reports to determine if they’ll work for your operation.
