In the last and final stage of the billing process, the billing company will see to it that the bills are paid and reimbursed. The billers are the one who will create and file the claims before the insurer, while making sure that such claim is accurate and free from errors. Not only that, they must make follow ups with the patients, so they can immediately make actions for delinquent bills. Once the bill is paid, it is automatically reflected in their software.
However, it is possible that the patient can be delinquent or cannot pay for the entire amount. It is left to the medical billing company to make sure that the medical provider is paid out for its services. This can be achieved by sending in follow-up bills. Keep in mind that each medical provider possesses its own set of guidelines and timelines in regard to the payment of bills and collection of claims.
