Doctor Billing Services:

Initial Consultation & Initial Training

Our first step is to determine if we're a good fit for your needs. Not all billing services are suited for every practice. We aim to assist you effectively, so we'll begin by understanding why you're seeking our services and what your priorities are.

Once you decide to proceed, we collaborate with your staff to ensure timely and accurate information exchange. We aim to get things right from the start to secure the highest reimbursement in the shortest time. We have systems in place to facilitate efficient information exchange and will train your staff to work seamlessly as a team.

Controlling Critical Information

Accurate and timely information is vital for healthcare facilities and medical professionals to evaluate, plan, and deliver quality care. Medical Billing and Coding specialists play a crucial role in managing the flow of important data, serving as a critical link in the healthcare process.

Patient Entry

Many practices prefer our team to enter patient information directly into our software from intake documents. We double-check for accuracy and completeness before generating claims. Accurate patient information is essential for successful claims payment.

Billing

We audit the information for accuracy before entering it into our database and submitting claims electronically or on paper. We stay current with insurance regulations to ensure fees are at the maximum allowable reimbursement and focus on procedure codes to prevent suspensions or rejections.

We process secondary carrier claims upon receipt of the primary carrier EOB, ensuring maximum coverage by insurance companies and minimizing out-of-pocket expenses for your patients.

Daily Claims Submission and Follow-up

Most claims are sent electronically daily. We process claims for Medicare, BC/BS, Medicaid, and other payers, including Workers Comp, Personal Injury, and HMOs. Paper claims are mailed at least once a week, depending on practice size.

Posting Insurance Payments, Cash Payments & Adjustments

Each EOB is audited for correct payment and benefits. We analyze each EOB, enter appropriate credits, and take immediate action to process unpaid or reduced claims, ensuring you receive every penny you're entitled to.

We audit for accuracy before sending statements to patients. We create clear, concise, and informative statements to minimize patient inquiries - fully customizable to either summary or detailed format. We also create patient collection letters as needed.

  • Instant access to accurate aging reports
  • Collection calls and follow-up documentation
  • Appealing delayed or denied claims with insurance carriers
  • Monthly government credit reports for Medicare/Medicaid

Checks

Checks are sent directly to you. Our goal is to help you get started or improve your existing practice. Remember, if you don't get paid, we don't get paid. It is to our mutual benefit to collect the full reimbursement for services rendered.

Account Receivable Management

A team of professionals works each month to bring in your money. We monitor the accounts receivable aging report, ensuring claims are paid promptly. If a claim is unpaid, we research the issue and notify your office for corrections and resubmission.

The struggle between payers and providers over compensation continues to escalate as payers apply more resources toward reducing their reimbursements. Often it may seem as if these payers are really just in the claims denial business. Most providers simply do not have the resources, focus, or expertise to fight this escalating battle.

The result is that providers usually have large sums tied up in aging accounts receivable and unacceptably high write-offs, thus compensation far below what is expected – and deserved. Many providers are forced to deal with the minutiae of their business rather than the big picture, since they do not have the tools to manage their business, make informed decisions, or set strategy.

5 Star Billing Services exists to help you improve your financial performance and provide you with the tools and insights to achieve your business objectives. Successful businesses leverage systems and data to set strategy, improve processes, determine which customers to target, and increase revenues and profits. Healthcare providers should be no different, and 5 Star Billing services are geared to do just that – help you improve your business.
