Did you know that approximately 35 percent of orthopedic surgery claims are processed incorrectly by commercial carriers? These errors often result in denials, and shockingly, over 25 percent of medical claims are denied, with 15 percent never resubmitted for appeal. This means orthopedic surgeons are missing out on revenue due to preventable billing mistakes.

Orthopedic providers need an experienced medical billing team dedicated to their specialty, understanding its unique billing requirements. For instance, an expert orthopedic surgery biller would know that pain pump insertions for post-op pain relief must be performed by a physician other than the orthopedic surgeon to be billable. They should also be well-versed in payer-specific coverage policies, ICD and CPT codes, and post-operative modifiers.

Your Orthopedics Billing Company

An orthopedics billing company should increase your reimbursements and be more efficient and effective at billing than your own office. Whether you own a private practice or work in a hospital or multi-provider facility, an orthopedics billing service can make your practice more profitable.

Industry experts consider a claims adjustment rate of between 20% and 35% as good and acceptable. At 5 Star, our account executives have an average of eight years in orthopedics billing, which is why our adjustment rate is consistently lower - as low as 12% with Medicare. We achieve AR rates for our practices that are higher than the industry average, meaning you and your practice will get a higher average return per processed claim.

5 Star Billing Services is more than a claims processing center. We offer multiple benefits and billing services. Our state-of-the-art billing system generates accurately-coded claims daily and submits them electronically. Once your superbills are processed, payment can be received in as little as ten days instead of three months.
