Seven Common Billing Mistakes
In our business, we see a lot of the same mistakes being made over and over. They might seem like no big deal, but over time it’s costing your practice money.
Some of the most common are:
- Failing to photocopy the insurance ID card.
- Missing the claim filing limit.
- Misreading an EOB.
- Ignoring clearinghouse reports.
- Incorrect code usage.
- Lack of reporting.
- And most importantly: Failing to make your billing the most important job in the office.
Your medical billing requires full attention and dedicated time in order to focus on billing tasks and to avoid these common and easily corrected issues.
We at Help My Biller encourage all offices to:
Utilize clearinghouse and aging reports.
Stay web savvy and make use of online resources.
Track actions with notes; names, dates, and reference numbers.
And above all stay educated!
