Medical Billing: Why Is There A Need to Bill

Visiting your physician may seem simple upfront, but in reality, such is recorded as part of a bigger and more complex system of medical billing. Your insurance company is also tangled up in this system, wherein the coverage of your policy is assessed. Also, there are different parties to this, such as the patient, the medical care provider and the insurer. Thus, it can be said that the patient visit alone can cause different interactions among the other parties.

Now that the interactions have taken place, it is the medical biller’s responsibility to arrange for the reimbursement claims among the three parties. The medical billing company will be the one to make sure that the medical care provider is paid for the services rendered, including the items used for any treatments or procedures. Failure to properly create a bill and file the claim can cause delays in the payment of these services.
