Home health care services document the specific services health care professionals provide during a patient’s visit. Medical coders and billers identify and translate health care providers’ documentation, apply the correct industry codes, and formulate and submit a claim. Agencies can hire in-house coders and billers, or outsource these services to a billing and coding company. The latter, however, offers several distinct advantages.
First and foremost, you will start noticing a significant improvement in your cash flow. With fewer errors, you will start enjoying lesser denials and rejections – and hence, quicker reimbursements.
Secondly, you can save yourself the trouble of having to make tedious follow-ups for account receivables and training your personnel to keep them updated about the latest requirements of insurance companies and government mandates.
The simple truth is, if a home healthcare agency lacks trained, experienced and knowledgeable coders, inevitable errors can cost your agency thousands of dollars. Trying to juggle responsibilities of patient care and running a successful home health agency can cause a coder to develop routine habits and rely on memorized codes rather than assigning more precise codes. In-house coders might take shortcuts when asked to meet demanding productivity goals, resulting in inaccurate codes.
Home healthcare services outsourcing, on the other hand, gives your agency both speed and accuracy to decrease turnaround time and increase reimbursement.
