BBelow are the data entry services offered as part of the revenue cycle management cycle that AHCBS currently offers.
Demographic Entry:The AHCBS specialists enter patient demographic details such as name, date of birth, address, insurance details, medical history, guarantor etc as provided by the patients at the time of the visit. For established patients, we validate these details and necessary changes, if any, are done to the patient records on the practice management system.
Charge Entry:The fee schedules are pre- loaded into the practice management system. CPT and ICD-9 codes are entered into the system. The billing specialists ensure that all details have been provided in the claim and ready to be filed.
Payment Posting:All claims in the system are examined and priorities are set. First the claims close to their filing limits, and then work down from the age of the claim. Periodic follow-ups over phone, email and/or online is done to get the status of each claim submitted to the insurance company.
We have used AHCBS from the start of our practice in March 2008. Being new to the billing aspect of the medical field myself, I have found AHCBS to be very helpful in guiding us with helpful, knowledgeable information. They are prompt and professional and have proven to be an asset to our company.
