As an OB/GYN Practice, you have unique billing issues, whether it is how to bill appropriately for ultrasound services or the correct codes for urodynamics in the office.
At Strategic, we monitor changes in your specialty area that result from CPT-4 changes, new coding edits, or even areas of focus from the Office of the Inspector General.
We communicate with Practices through our one-on-one meetings and through our Billing Alerts to ensure you understand the ever-changing payer rules.
Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the more complex billing areas and has been faced with several challenges over the last few years:
- Billing for preventive and sick care in one visit. Each payer has its unique set of rules for these combined visit types. We understand these rules and work with you to implement processes to optimize reimbursement.
- Thorough denial review process. At times, an insurance company's internal edits result in an inappropriate denial. All denials are reviewed by our certified coders and appealed when needed. Nothing is adjusted off unless the denial is valid, so you can be assured you are getting paid the money you deserve.
- Surgical Procedures. We understand the complex guidelines for surgical procedures including bundling rules, decision for surgery requirements, modifiers, and global periods. By providing the right documentation at the time of claims submission, we improve your cashflow. By understanding the payer's internal edits, we improve your collections.
- Protection of Patient Privacy to prevent reportable breaches. Our billing staff is routinely trained on HIPAA, which is particularly important with some of the sensitive conditions experienced by your patients. You can be confident that we are continuously working to protect patient privacy.
