MBA HealthGroup provides dermatology billing services to physicians around the country. One of our areas of expertise is dermatology billing, which has long been a complicated matter. Dermatology requires detailed reporting on skin lesions, including number, size and precise location, as well as detailed information on procedures, including excision, biopsy, and lesion destruction. Many CPT codes used in dermatology are subject to multiple procedure rules, and a thorough understanding of modifiers and post-op periods is essential.
In addition to the complex, ever-changing landscape of insurance reimbursement, dermatology has also seen an evolution in practice workflow. Most dermatology practices have expanded beyond just medical and surgical to offer a wide range of cosmetic, cash-based services. This requires practices to implement technology, develop processes, and manage performance across different, distinct service lines. This is where a Revenue Cycle Management partner like MBA HealthGroup can add value.
We understand Healthcare Information Technology (HIT)
Choosing the right Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) software is critical to data accuracy and detail. This, in turn, allows our billing specialists to submit claims accurately the first time and get your practice paid more quickly. MBA HealthGroup has over a decade of experience implementing and optimizing EHR systems in practices from small 1-doc groups to some of the country’s largest hospitals and health systems. We have a breadth of HIT knowledge that no other dermatology billing company can lay claim to.
We know practice workflow
Because our team consists of certified coders, billing experts and consultants, we have the toolbox to help your practice with whatever challenges might arise. We can work collaboratively to make sure your practice is functioning at the highest level possible, and support you during any practice transitions, such as staffing changes or practice growth.
When you outsource your dermatology billing to MBA HealthGroup, you’re not giving up control to a third party. Instead we like to think of ourselves as joining your team and becoming a part of your practice. We will function just like your back office, and your account manager is always just a phone call or email away.
We can accommodate practices with fee-for-service and cash-based revenue streams
Most dermatology billing services charge based on a percentage of collections, which is how we do things at MBA HealthGroup: we only get paid when you get paid. However, we take this commitment a step further than most other RCM services by leaving any cash-based services out of the mix. Any cash payments you collect for aesthetic services are not subject to RCM fees. We get paid for the claims we process — it’s that simple.
We take patient phone calls
If you think medical billing is complicated, imagine how your patients feel. MBA HealthGroup will field all patient phone calls related to billing so that your staff can focus on patient care, allowing your practice to run more efficiently. Our dermatology billing specialists will take the time to review EOBs and make sure your patients understand their insurance benefits and financial obligations.
