Why is Emergency Billing Service Difficult?

Unlike other medical practices, Emergency Medicine care is not based on a definitive diagnosis. Billing is complicated when we need to treat the patients for their apparent condition. It also relies heavily on the patient care report prepared when the patient is picked up.

Other aspects that make Emergency Medicine Billing challenging are:

1) The report must not have any errors in specific details of the patient's condition such as Basic Life Support, Mileage Documentation, Advanced Life Support, etc.

2) The chances of denials by emergency care insurers are high with beneficiary signature rules on behalf of the patient.

3) Wrong use of modifiers such as place of origin and destination of the ambulance trip can cause issues with Emergency Medical Billing.

4) Claims verification is necessary to bill the claim properly.

5) Criteria for determining "medical necessity" to determine the level of the bill and various levels of ground and air ambulance services used for rendering the emergency care is crucial information a service provider should be aware of.

6) It is essential to be on top of the rules about Emergency Billing.

7) To avoid walking into the 'fraudulent' category, you need to adhere strictly to HIPAA Compliance related to security, privacy and compliance laws.

8) Commercial insurers have an undeclared policy of increasing patient liability and reducing their reimbursement for Emergency Medicine Billing.
