Title: Importance of Medical Billing


1
Medical Billing
2
Medical billing involves is the method of
bringing up and to follow up on claims with
health insurance companies in order to get
payment for the services provided by a healthcare
provider. This operation is also practiced by
most of the insurance companies, private
companies, and government-sponsored programs.
3
So who is a medical biller? Well, a medical
biller is the one who is accountable for all
paperwork associated with the patients records
in clinics, hospitals, and physicians offices,
nursing homes, and other healthcare-related
facilities. A medical biller works in tandem with
the insurance companies to manage medical bills
procured by patients, and they make certain that
the respective health care providers are
compensated for all the services that were
provided.
4
Basically, it can be said that the medical
billing process is an correspondence between the
health care provider and the insurance company,
which is the payer. This process usually takes
from many days to many months to bring to
completion. This needs a lot of interactions
before an actual decision is achieved. The
health care providers are accorded with the
insurance companies to furnish the health care
services.
5
Medical billing was done on paper for a lot many
years. But, with the coming in of medical
practice management software, which is known as
health information systems, the possibility of
efficiently manage large amounts of claims became
a reality. This has caused the propulsion of
hordes of software companies that have sprout up
to build medical billing software to this
money-churning market. Also, there are many
companies that provide portal solutions from
their very own web-interfaces, which nullify the
cost of individually-licensed software packages
that come with a hefty price. Also, the fast
changing requirements put down by the U.S. health
insurance companies, many areas of medical
billing and medical office management have opened
up the need for specified training.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability
Act HIPAABecause of the importance of patient
information protection, in the past decade, the
medical billing sphere has been resisted by the
bringing about of the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act HIPAA.In
order to provide suitable services and to make
sure that there is no breach of confidence and at
the same time to maintain patient records and to
bring about their services suitably and also
mostly importantly to make sure that there is no
breach of assurance and also to maintain patient
records, HIPAA is armed with rules and
regulations which must be followed by hospitals,
healthcare providers, physicians, and health
plans.Medical Billing Training in Hyderabad

The medical providers, since 2005, have been
egged on to send their concerns electronically in
line with HIPAA in order to get their
payment.Medical billing service providers and
insurance companies were affected by HIPAA
regulations. Patients also found that their
insurance companies and health care providers had
to have extra waivers and documents that were in
line with HIPAA regulations. HIPAA importantly
needed for the system to maintain secrecy of
patient's personal and statistic information and
also the provider's details.

The Role of Medical Billing ServiceThe
procedure grew above the capacity of the
companies to handle billing on their own and with
the new rules and regulation it best fitted the
providers to outsource their medical billing
needs to a third-party which is now come to be
known as a medical billing service. A percentage
of a practice's revenues is taken by the medical
billing services as their payment. Bringing down
the weight of paperwork is one of the main aims
of these services and also to get back the
effectiveness which is brought about by workload
saturation.
