Healthcare is complicated and what adds up to more complexity is the billing and coding processes. This is because of the regulations that constantly add additional layers. Behavioral/Mental practitioners end up spending more time and resources organizing bills, codes, and get distracted from their primary task of providing quality patient care. Using a qualified, outsourced behavioral billing company can serve you well while reducing your workload, experiencing less disruption, and increasing profitability.
Unify Healthcare Services is one such medical billing company that will assist you with its expert Behavioral/Mental Billing Services.
You can consider the following points to improve the efficiency of Behavioral/Mental Billing Practice
Ensure that patient’s information is true
It won’t hurt to look over something twice just to make sure everything is in the right place. Being a mental healthcare professional, it is always important to ensure that patient information stays correct at every point. In fact, it is important to endorse double-checking in the billing process to avoid any chance of error.
Submit Claims Properly
You can work hard on submitting claims and take proper care in the entire process. But all your work will be in vain if there is any error in the billing process. For any service rendered, it is indisputable to receive reimbursement, but if the practice doesn’t properly focus on the proper billing and coding, the process can become quite frustrating for healthcare providers.
Know Your CPT Codes
Ensuring proper CPT codes will bring in reimbursements as per the coverage of given mental health service. The codes might often be time-based and associated with time taken for the session or presence of the patient in family therapy. For example, CPT 90832 is used to denote 30 minutes of patient-centered psychotherapy, family or couple therapy of 50 minutes with the patient present is coded as 90847, while group therapy other than a family group is coded as 90853.
