The Apple Internal Medicine Team – the Core of your Business
Many internal medicine practices are concerned with eRx adoption and meeting the government mandated minimums in order to not lose reimbursement in 2012 and 2013. They are also concerned with the adoption of EHR/EMR and meeting the “Meaningful Use” rules in order to not lose reimbursement and possibly gain some extra money through the incentives. During all of this, they are apprehensive that first 5010 and then ICD-10 are going to negatively impact their cash flow. Which brings on the bigger issue, are you concerned that your systems will not be able to handle the old set of codes (ICD-9) at the same time they handle the new set of codes (ICD-10) as many other insurances will not be ready for ICD-10?
By using cutting edge technology, certified coders and billers, Apple Medical Billing can produce amazing results! Those clients who work with us to improve their cash flow have been the recipients of a less than 1% error rate at submission of claims, collection percentages received at 95% of expected reimbursement, and days in A/R averaging between 25 and 35. All of these benchmarks are considerably better than industry standards.
