It is imperative no matter the size of the provider that accurate and detailed records are being kept to receive the correct amount of Medicare payments for services and care. One of the top reasons funds are not being paid out is that records are not being kept with accurate data pertaining to Medicare patients. If you feel that you should be getting a bigger payout from your Medicare patient care, it may be time to have a third party look through your record keeping and billing to see what you may be missing when you submit your forms. There are some fairly common mistakes that could be costing your practice or facility large amounts of money each year.
What mistakes are you making?
Some recurring mistakes are happening to many providers due to improper record keeping such as coding/billing errors.
How can you prevent these mistakes?
First, make sure you have up to date coding software and training and second, pay attention to details. It may not seem like a huge to deal to leave the more specific coding numbers out but it could cost you multiple Medicare payments in the long run.
