The GroupOne Billing Center is staffed by certified professional coders to maintain the database and communicate with our clients regarding payor-specific, practice-specific and patient-specific information by CPT code. This produces extremely comprehensive, client-specific data that ensures clean claims and corporate compliance.
Our real-time rules engine updates CCI edits, bundling and LMRP updates, and searches for diagnosis compatibility. Eligibility verification services are available, based on payor specific capabilities and access.
The GroupOne Billing Center creates the charge in the system after review and verification of the coded charges by Certified Professional Coders. The center submits insurance claims to the appropriate payors, generates periodic patient statements, and maintains data files. All claims are submitted electronically, except for those payors who do not accept electronic claim submissions or appealed claims that require additional documentation.
The GroupOne Billing Center allocates payments, denials and denial codes, and determines appeals in payment variance from negotiated contract to actual insurance payment.
Our team of reimbursement specialists follows every claim from submission to adjudication, ensuring proper handling of each submitted claim.
Claims status is tracked online and in real-time for continued reimbursement management. Claims submission dates, re-filing, as well as follow-up billing and collection notes are recorded and monitored by the billing staff, who are accountable for all activity in the system.
Reimbursement specialists promptly follow up on claims when payors fail to adjudicate within the specified time frame. At the same time, the center researches denied claims, re-files and updates the practice’s internal database to alert staff to changes in payor requirements.
The GroupOne Billing Center staff has online and immediate access to information requested by payors. This helps expedite claims adjudication with minimal interruption to the practice.
Powerful Tools and Reporting
Contract and fee schedule management tools provide a detailed picture of the accounts receivable for the practice, including the variance between scheduled and actual payments. These tools help the provider ensure that accurate and appropriate payments are received.
Tracking and management of denied claims helps uncover deficiencies in coding and billing practices. Denial management is used as a tool for the provider or office staff to address coding and billing errors and inconsistencies up-front, instead of correcting a denied claim. Clean claims translate to quicker, more complete payments and an improved bottom line.
The reporting package is developed and customized for each practice, based on the requirements and objectives of the physician(s) and administrative staff. Once in place, the system emails periodic reports to the appropriate recipients, including physicians, administrative staff and any outside parties such as the practice accountant.
