Ascend BPO Services monitors co-pays as part of its medical billing procedure. We evaluate whether proper co-pay amounts were collected. When necessary, we follow up with the patient in a professional manner to secure payment. We encourage disbursement by check or phone on the telephone in most circumstances. This further impacts negative accounts receivables.
Verification of Correct Coding
It is our experience that many bills are initially declined because of improper coding techniques by inexperienced or untrained staff. Ascend BPO Services employs a team of seasoned professionals. All understand the significance of proper use of CPT and ICD, as well as modifiers. We apply the payer specific rules, LCD and CCI edits for proper coding.
Coordination of Benefits with Primary and Secondary Carriers
Many in-house billing departments are in such overflow that submittal to secondary carriers is impossible. Ascend BPO Services incorporates technology to track payments from primary carriers. Once we are certain that primary insurance has afforded proper benefits, we then submit claims to the secondary carrier. Our clients tell us that this has significantly increased reimbursement due to their offices.
