Customized Medical Billing Services for Oncologists
Did you know that Medicare pays for chemotherapy administration only if the oncologist gives the patient a cancer diagnosis?
Oncology practices face reimbursement reductions, frequent coding changes, evolving compliance rules and payor ignorance regarding the latest technology. Unprofitable chemo & non-chemo drug reimbursement, negative payment margin on drug purchases and complex coding and billing requirements seriously erode practice revenue. Coding and medical billing errors such as the misuse of modifiers to identify services, treatment or improper documentation frequently lead to denied and misadjudicated claims.
Oncology billing is complex and requires a high level of experience and knowledge for appropriate coding, modifier application and payor-specific medical billing procedures. Medical billing specifics regarding multiple chemotherapy administrations, therapeutic infusion and injection reporting, code bundling, etc., require ever increasing levels of expertise and efficiency.
