What is Medical Billing?
There is a crazy myth that the healthcare system is really designed to reward you for being unhealthy. It is true!
Medical billing is a health system payment practice within the United States where most healthcare providers like your dentists and/or their team, submit and follow up on claims with insurance company providers, in order to receive payment for services rendered. This process can take between four to six weeks to receive payment. So what else is medical billing?
1. Medical billing is the go-between the dentist and insurance company: Medical billing is the process where your healthcare provider sends an invoice (called a claim) detailing the rendered services received to your health insurance provider for payment. Sometimes, your insurance company pays the claim in full and sometimes they pay a portion of it. That is what you call co-paying. If there is one thing insurance companies are proficient at, it is their constant inability to pay the claim in full and then try to lower the cost they have to pay. Don’t allow this to happen to your dentist practice in Oklahoma. Medical billing in Oklahoma can be less stressful allowing Jaquay Enterprise to train your dental staff how to best and most effectively initiate medical billing and be great at being a medical biller.
2. Great medical billers boost the dental practice’s bottom line: The profession of medical billers have always been a staple of healthcare institutions, but they often do more than just file claims for insurance. Knowledgeable medical billers can boost the revenue of your Oklahoma dental practice.
Oklahoma medical billers in dental practices prepare claims for the patients’ insurance companies and try to ensure that the dentist receives full payment for rendered work. Also, the medical biller regularly communicates with the dentist to clarify diagnoses or treatments and to obtain additional information. Did you know that?
With that question, the financial health of your dental practice not only depends on your continued patronage with insurance companies; it also greatly depends on the excellent performance of medical billers.
