Gastroenterology

We know your Gastroenterology specialty, let us help you build your business.

Medical billing and coding for gastroenterology services can be challenging and requires extensive knowledge and gastroenterology-specific billing expertise. 

There are numerous CPT codes and conditions to deal with in order to correctly submit your claims. Depending on your practice, you may need to bill for office services as well as ASC procedures and hospital visits and procedures.

 

Our team of certified coders have the kind of experience necessary to ensure your GI practice will maintain consistent cash flow while increasing collection rates. All of our coders are certified either through the AAPC or AHIMA and uphold the ethics and standards of the profession. Additionally, our billers and coders work directly with your staff to learn the nuances of your practice so as to be aware of known issues. They will provide feedback on coding scenarios that need attention and possible correction.

What we know…

Within the insurance industry, the regulations put forth by the Affordable Care Act provide Screening Colonoscopies at no charge to the patient once every 10 years. Proper coding of these services will help to minimize confusion for your patients as well as allow for correct payments for your services.

Various office services provided, ie: Capsules, Bravo Tests, H-Pylori testing, along with your regular office visits and consults combine to provide effective patient treatment for gastric problems. Correct coding and billing for all of these services is key.

Practicing GI providers perform multiple procedures and treatments, which will generate an abundance of claims, involve multiple payors and can result in a myriad of claims issues. Having an experienced medical billing team, with visibility into performance, is vital to your practice’s financial health.

Here are some of the complications that are affecting GI revenue collection procedure:

  • GI providers who treat patients within hospital services are at risk for missing billings due to difficulties in tracking services. We have established mechanism for ensuring the capture of your charges

  • Incorrectly bundled payments

  • Not collecting the proper co-pays at the time of service

  • ICD10 codes that are not covered under the LCD’s for your area

  • Billing screening colonoscopies instead of a diagnostic and vice versa

On October 1, 2016 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will no longer accept unspecified codes in most cases. 

Starting in October, CMS requires greater specificity for claims filed in ICD-10-CM/PCS. The 12-month grace period originally introduced in 2015 said they would not deny claims for lack of ICD-10 specificity. That all changes on October 1, 2016. Payors will most likely follow suit if they haven't already.
