Pediatric Billing and Coding

Medical billing for pediatrics must consider the fact that pediatricians often spend 25% more time with their patients than other specialist practices and frequently offer a range of complex and extensive services to them. In order to enable pediatric practices to better support their patients and focus on doing without worrying about maximizing revenue for the services they offer to patients, pediatric practices need competent and qualified pediatric coding and billing professionals.

Steps followed in Medical Billing Pediatric:

  1. The first step is to assess the documentation for correctness, compliance, insurance coverage, medical justification, and billable claims. Demographics and insurance eligibility verification along with prior authorization are undertaken to ensure clean claim submissions.

  3. Coded charts are checked for misinformation and errors if any and are followed up by our teams with the patients and contacts to fill in any missing details. Charges are entered and billed as per the procedures and diagnoses administered to the patients.
  4. Claims are submitted to the payers and clients are updated about the same after the confirmation from the authorities is received.
  5. Rejections and Denials if any are closely monitored by our teams and are followed up.

Services we offer for Pediatric Billing and coding:

Since patients frequently provide inaccurate or insufficient coverage information during their visits, insurance companies frequently delay or deny medical claims.
