Timely filing and losing claims into the ever increasing black hole is the reason to be sure your claim are being sent without errors. Easy Billing Professional has error checks for the common reasons for an invalid claim. We will show you how many errors you have in a claim and what they are so you can fix them before they are printed or sent electronically.
Save the date: June 20 1PM EST IMS PRO demo with Brent Stane.
We work with IMS Pro a unique clearing house that has the ability to look at claim errors on a claim level, instead of rejecting an entire file for an error in one claim they will reject just the one claim. Seeing a demo of how the submission process works with them is well worth the time. Next Thursday June 20th Brent Stane from IMS Pro will show you how they handle claims to ensure the greatest acceptance of claims submitted through their software portal "XClaims". Join us at 1PM EST to learn how the process works. They also offer through Easy Billing Professional the ability for real-time claim edits, proof of timely filing letters, appeal letters, real-time eligibility checks, real-time NPI searches, claim scrubbing for Medicare Review, CCI and E/M Coding edits, drill down reports, electronic patient statements, collections and stellar CUSTOMER SERVICE.
If you do not use Easy Billing Professional currently, send us an email or call 800.618.6136 and we will forward the meeting link for this demo.
The time for ICD-10 implementation is getting closer. Easy Billing Professional vs 0.93.14b available now has the ability for both ICD-9 and ICD-10. When the new CMS 1500 form is released Easy Billing Professional will be ready to implement the ICD-10 Code process directly into the form and already in the 5010 protocol for electronic submission.
The number of diagnosis pointers will remain the same. Currently, it is possible to point up to four diagnosis codes out of a new maximum of 12 for each procedure code. Main recent changes in diagnosis pointers included going from one field, where pointers were entered with dahes, spaces, and commas in between, to being entered in four separate fields.
Once the new CMS 1500 form is implemented into Easy Billing Professional users will be given a set period of time to send the old CMS form to the carriers but after the deadline date, currently planned for October 2013 users will not be able to send the old CMS form.
If you have any questions or would like to see a free demo and see how Easy Billing Professional is going to be not only be compatible with ICD-9 and ICD-10 plus the old CMS 1500 for and the new CMS 1500 form. Easy Billing has always promised to stay current, and proactively adhere to the changes in the medical billing industry.
Let us demonstrate just how easy and efficient we have made it for you. please call 800.618.6136
Easy Billing Professional has error capturing at the claim level to reduce claim errors when sending claims electronically or printing the CMS 1500 form. Errors are shown in red at the Verify screen to let you know what errors need to be addressed. Clicking on the (red) error tab allows you to see the error, highlighted in yellow.
The errors captured indicate a lack of information and/or conflict with carrier requirements. Examples of reasons for error: the claim missing NPI numbers, Rendering Providers, Billing Provider Information, Facility Information, a Patient Name, Date of Birth, Carrier Name, Diagnosis Code, at least one Procedure Code etc.
The ability to see these errors easily and clearly makes billing efficient, saves valuable time, increases claim success rate and therefore effects the bottom line.
