Top 5 Factors to Consider When Choosing a
Medical Billing Service Provider
  • As a medical practitioner, your top priority is
    to provide your patients with quality care
    service. At the same time, you understand that it
    is not practical to neglect the financial aspect
    of your business. After all, proper management of
    finances is what makes it possible to offer
    quality care. A good medical billing service
    provider can help increase your revenue while
    reducing denials and rejections. However,
    selecting the right medical billing service can
    be a bit overwhelming.
  • Five important considerations for choosing a
    medical billing service provider
  • 1. Services offered
  • This is, perhaps, the most important factor to
    take into consideration when selecting a medical
    billing service. Are you clear on the services
    that the company provides? More importantly, are
    you aware of the services not included in the
    service package? It is also necessary to take
    into account the companys specialization. If the
    company caters to your particular requirements
    you will be gaining benefits that go beyond cost
    and time efficiency.
  • 2. Cost

Another important aspect, this is only
determined after you go through your current
finances and set a specific budget. Certain
services increase the overall cost of the package
being offered. Clarify these charges with the
company in advance to get a clear idea of exactly
which services you will be paying for. 3.
Transparency Your billing service provider must
never make any decisions on your behalf without
intimating you first. This does not mean that you
will be required to micromanage the companys
work. However, you do need to be aware of the
progress made on your claims, or of any delays.
Typically, a reliable billing service will
provide you with regular reports on the work
being done on your behalf. 4. Security Patient
privacy is your utmost concern as a medical
practitioner. Your patients trust you with
personal and sensitive details about their
health. While maintaining this trust is crucial
for your business, another reason to seek out a
trustworthy billing service is to ensure
compliance with government privacy laws, along
with HIPAA regulations.

5. Credentials A glowing referral from a
trusted colleague can be convincing enough to
make you want to hire the same company. However,
it is necessary to verify details for yourself
before making any sure decisions. Find out the
policies and safeguards adopted by the company to
achieve compliance with federal, state, and HIPAA
regulations. Do they self-audit? If so, how
often? What measures have been taken to ensure
the continued education of employees? Is employee
knowledge tested on a regular basis? The medical
billing service provider you hire should be well
equipped to advise you on making the best
financial decisions for your practice, not the
other way around. When you select a medical
billing services provider you are entrusting a
third party with a very important part of your
business. This can impact your reputation in
dramatic ways and is a decision that must be
taken with great care. A good medical billing
service provider is equivalent to a dedicated
business partner who is as interested as you are
in ensuring the success of your medical
practice.   Medical Billers and Coders (MBC) is a
