Medical payments sometimes create havoc and become burdensome to citizens due to Medical billing miscalculations. Thousands of dollars are unlawfully added in the last charge due to these miscalculations.
Medical Billing Miscalculations are very common across the healthcare industry. Over the years several measures were taken by the Medical Billing Service Providers to eliminate these miscalculations during billing but were not 100 percent successful.
Very Common Medical Billing Miscalculations:
Promantra's Medical Billing Service experts have analysed few commonly repeated errors after attaining the analysed bill and EOB affirmation.
Identical bills: Avoid charging the same person twice for one single service or operation. Such identical billing errors must be eliminated by analyzed charging.
Wrong patient data: One of the most recurring errors in medical billing is due to incorrect use of the patient data. A simple mistake; for example designation spelling or even strategy number error have enough potential to create ruckus in medical billing. A claim is rejected even if the insurance identification number is incorrect.
Mistaken amount: Any customer would not like being charged for product or services he was not involved with. We can lose a customer if he is charged more than what he is expected to pay. Similarly in medical billing, you can expect a claim denial due to irregular pricing, if any patient is charged more than what he is supposed to pay.
Operating room and anaesthesia time: The anaesthesia time in an operating room can also be a factor for billing miscalculations in healthcare. Study briefly the time under anaesthesia and the time in operating room before coming to conclusions. Miscalculations sum up rapidly even for a time period of as small as 15 minutes.
Postponed examination or operations: The review of documented medical payments must be precise just to make sure postponed examinations or operations are not charged. Pull out and analyze every possible information you can get from the medical bill just to ensure the patient is not charged anything extra unlawfully.
By understanding these common mistakes made while billing we can save time and money and also gain trust of all the people associated with that claim.
