Bariatrics & Weight Management Billing & Coding Software
Keep your billing and coding for bariatrics and weight management clinics on track with our full suite of medical billing software solutions at AdvancedMD.
Our system seamlessly pulls critical patient data from your EHR and practice management software to speed up the claims submission process. We also offer simple tools to help you submit clean, accurate claims every time and avoid the delays that are common in medical coding and billing.
The most common errors in bariatrics and weight management claims are often the easiest to fix. With our medical billing software you get specific tools to reduce the risk of errors, and improve your first-pass resolution rates with claims payment. That begins from the moment a patient schedules their appointment, and includes:
at the time of scheduling, then again right before an appointment or surgical procedure. If there’s a problem with the insurance information, it flags in the system and your team gets a call list to contact the patient and update your information before they arrive.
that review every claim before it goes out. Our services lead the industry, checking for more than 3,500 potential errors that could exist on a claim, and making sure you have the most accurate information on every one that goes out to a payer. If there’s a risk of claims rejection or denial, we’ll flag it. Your staff gets a user-friendly worklist to resolve the highest-priority claims and avoid missing any deadlines.
to help you correct and resubmit denied claims before the deadline is up. Payers often have short time windows to resubmit a claim for payment, so we make sure your team knows which ones to address first. Our software helps you avoid missing important deadlines that could result in a need to write off bad debt because you didn’t submit a claim in time.
While payer claims submissions are important, it’s essential that providers in bariatrics and weight management not forget about self-pay and uninsured patients, as well as those with high-deductible health plans. These patients are either covering 100% of their total weight management costs, or they’re going to owe a significant amount up front before their insurance kicks in. With AdvancedMD, you get the tools that make their payment process smoother and easier, with the dual benefit of helping you reduce the risk of missing out on payments from these patients.
Patients can quickly access all their current and past billing data to see a breakdown of their itemized costs, and pay their bills online through a convenient payment portal. They can also use the tools in AdvancedMD to create payment plans and settle their bills over time, rather than skipping their bill entirely because they can’t pay it all at once. Avoiding the collections process helps maintain higher levels of patient satisfaction and saves you a lot of money by not tracking down overdue accounts.
Bariatrics surgeons that perform procedures in external facilities, including ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) and hospitals, need to be able to pull information from those systems to accurately and quickly send out patient claims. Our system is designed for seamless data transfer from one system to another, even from disparate software providers.
We help you get everything you need following a surgical procedure to send out bills right away. The sooner you get claims to payers, the more revenue you can capture for services rendered. Waiting until a hospital system sends out information, or trying to manually transfer the information from their system to yours only causes unnecessary delays and can negatively affect your revenue cycle management.
