Internal Medicine Medical Billing Services

An internal medicine practice frequently faces challenges with billing coverage that other specialties may not encounter. This is due to the fact that the Internist is typically the first physician a patient sees to diagnose a complaint.  It is the Internist that may need to run a range of tests to make the initial diagnosis that is then followed up by a specialist. In contrast to other specialties, an Internal Medicine practice does not limit consultations only to certain body systems, a list of related complaints, distinct diseases or specific procedures or treatments. In addition, an Internal Medicine physician provides routine preventative and periodic assessment services for patients who are not presenting with a particular complaint.

Iinternal Medicine practitioners may attempt preliminary treatments, tests and procedures to resolve a patient’s medical issue, yet then still need to refer the patient to a different specialist or specialists for additional or more focused care. These intermediate steps in treatment demand a billing service experienced in the complicated collaboration among medical professionals a particular patient’s condition might require. The variety of tests, procedures and treatment options requires a billing service that is capable of managing varied, interrelated and complicated coding and contractual issues among practitioners effectively and efficiently.

APS has made it a priority to develop a sophisticated and specialized knowledge base to offer the internal medicine practitioner reliable and responsible billing support. A proactive and extensive investment in state of the art billing technology allows APS to make sure its Internal Medicine clients are provided proven ways to ensure appropriate reimbursement for each patient. We developed and use processes described by the industry as “best practices” related to charge capture/reconciliation, claims submission and denial management. An extensive series of front end edits result in cleaner claims and fewer re-files and/or appeals.

The industry-leading claims strategies used by APS to maximize positive billing outcomes will result in higher approval rates and clearance of claims processed through our system. The methods used by APS have an over 97% first pass claims return that translates into a healthier accounts receivable for our clients.
