Pediatric medical billing and coding procedures can be more intricate and complicated than other specialties. Mistakes by inexperienced or overwhelmed staff can result in delays in payment, or even denied claims, ultimately resulting in a loss of time and money for your practice.
ML Medical Billing takes on the challenge of staying abreast of the changes in the medical coding year after year, as well as the overall payment process. We do this so that our clients have confidence and peace of mind knowing that the financial needs of their practices are being met, without having to sacrifice time and resources that can ultimately distract from patient care.
Many pediatric patients, which include infants, children, and adolescents, receive Medicaid coverage, with filing and compliance procedures that vary from state to state. Coding requirements also tend to change on a yearly basis, adding an additional layer of complexity – and stress – for a busy practice.
Some of the many pediatric care and outsourcing services ML Medical Billing can bill for are:
- General Pediatrics
- Pediatric Oncology
- Behavioral Psychology
- Pediatric Neurology
- Pediatric Endocrinology
- Pediatric Pulmonology
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
- Pediatric Nephrology
- Pediatric Cardiology
- Pediatric Infectious Diseases
- Nutrition Services
In addition to the varying coding requirements for different services for pediatric patients, certain codes are reimbursed at higher rates. Using a wrong or out of date code to bill for a service can result in lost revenue for your practice.
We understand that the needs and challenges of each practice are unique. We will design a service package based on the specific needs and goals of your practice. Contact us today to schedule a consultation or reach us online about pediatric billing services.
