General Surgery

With such a diverse and broad range of services and sub-specialties to take into account, general surgery practices face more challenges and complex coding requirements than other specialties when it comes to adequately billing and collecting payment for services. Successful reimbursements and claims approvals depend on accuracy, attention to administrative details, and dedicated financial and personnel resources that can distract from patient care and cost a practice more money.

Medical Billing Services for General Surgery
With complicated and confusing coding requirements, often for one session with a single patient, the average general surgery practice could stand to lose tens of thousands of dollars every year through incomplete and denied claims. With a high volume of patients and procedures performed every year, following up with patients and insurance companies to chase outstanding payments can be a time consuming, frustrating, and ineffective use of practice resources.

ML Billing takes on all of the hassle and responsibility of the billing and claims submission process from start to finish. Our job is not complete until your practice has received payment for all services rendered. With detailed reporting capabilities and “super bill” design to address your practice’s specific needs, you can stay on top of the process while we do all of the heavy lifting!
