Medical Billing Services
Medical billing services are a complex and integral part of the modern health care industry, and little-known facets of our healthcare system. Medical billing is the processes by which VA Home Health Care Agencies transmit important patient data and get paid for services rendered. A medical coder will create a record of a patient's visit into a universal code. This code is then translated by the medical biller into a claim, which is then given to the insurance company to determine the cost. We explain the core-concepts of the medical billing services we provide for our clients in Pittsburgh PA, Chester WV, and across the United States.

What Our Clients Say
Why Are Medical Billing Services Important?
Although when you visit a physician, it seems like an interaction between you and your doctor, but in reality there are a lot of moving pieces that make it possible. Even though a patient may only interact with the healthcare provider, there are actually three parties involved with every doctor's visit:
The healthcare provider
The insurance company
It's the medical billing service provider's responsibility to handle payment arrangements between the three parties. The medical biller's function is to make sure the the healthcare provider is compensated for their services by sending bills to both the patients and payers. (Insurance company)
The medical billing service provider reports all the information on the bill regarding the patient's care, and creates a bill for the insurance company. The bill, or a "claim," includes all the patient's information, medical history, insurance policy information, what procedures were performed, and why.
Simply put, we use medical billing services because healthcare providers need compensated for their services.

Medical Billing Services & Patient Relationship
After a patient has received healthcare services, they normally receive a bill at the end of the treatment. The billing company creates this by checking to see if a patient has a balance. The biller then adds the cost of the procedure to that balance, deducting the amount the insurance company covers, while including the co-pay/deductible. The medical billing company also accesses a patients medical records.
Medical coding companies use medical reports to translate procedures and diagnoses into code, while medical billing companies use medical records and insurance plans to translate information into accurate medical bills.
