There have been numerous changes in laws and regulations providers have to adhere to on a regular basis. From ICD-10s, Meaningful Use, Compliance, Audits, and now MIPS and MACRA on the horizon, a medical practice needs to ensure that their revenue is handled in an efficient and accurate manner. Not to mention that on October 1, 2016, ICD-10s will need more specificity and granularity.
Consolidated MD’s expert medical billers and coders work to alleviate some of the burden on doctors who are already inundated on a daily basis. We have AAPC Certified Coders and Auditors on staff to help process your claims quickly, and we can offer guidance to help ensure your claims meet medical necessity. Let’s face it: Audits and Take Backs are not something any provider wants to encounter.
Consolidated MD believes that if a physician already has a practice management system, they should not have to change it just because they want to outsource their billing or change billing companies. Many times the change in system will create unforeseen costs, from system computer requirements to time your staff needs to learn the new billing system. Our expert staff have been trained and work in numerous systems like Athena, eClinical, Kareo, Allscripts, Greenway, and many more.
We also believe that each medical practice should have the same dedicated, experienced medical billers working their claims from start to finish. With this philosophy, we truly become an extension of your office. The expert biller that scrubbed and processed the claim is the same person who speaks to your valued patients when they have questions about their statements. This provides continuity and confidence in answers, and keeps your patients happy.
The best place to start with medical practices is to assess what contracts the doctors have in place, and to ensure that we obtain every dollar the practice is contractually entitled to. When necessary, we appeal and fight for every dime. Not writing off these amounts can directly impact the revenue coming into your office without changing anything.
Finally, we make the transition easy and painless with NO Startup cost or long term contracts. Call us today to find out how we can help your practice.

MEDICAL CODING SERVICE
Accurate and complete coding is fundamentally important to maximizing reimbursements in today’s medical practices. Without the proper knowledge of medical coding and reimbursement rules, which sometimes seem to change on a day to day basis, physician practices rarely receive the reimbursements to which they are entitled.
An external billing audit can help ensure appropriate payment and compliance with applicable laws.
