The Apple Pathology Team – the Core of your Business
Many labs and pathology groups are concerned with proper billing for their services as their billing is unique to them. Are you concerned that the people who are doing your billing are fully versed in the relationship that each area of the body relates to all others? Are you concerned that your current billing staff is fully cognizant of how the different ICD-9 and CPT codes interrelate? And possibly of bigger interest to you, are your staff and your systems able to deal with the transition to ICD-10 and how that can possibly negatively impact your cash flow? Many insurance companies are not going to be ready to accept ICD-10 and having a system that can work with all scenarios is of paramount importance.
By using cutting edge technology, certified coders and billers, Apple Medical Billing can produce amazing results!
