We know that you and your practice have a lot on your plate. There’s lots to get done, and you can’t do everything! The revenue cycle is a time-consuming, complicated process, so should you outsource your billing?
While it’s understandably tempting to want to have your part in all aspects of your practice, you’ll have to ask yourself if it’s worth sacrificing time and energy for the billing process. Will internally learning, understanding, and doing all functions of the revenue cycle contribute to a better understanding of the practice’s financial position? Here’s why you should consider letting an external company like Practisynergy take the weight of billing off of your shoulders.
The revenue cycle is dense and complicated, and running your practice is a big task already. It would be nearly impossible for one person to be an expert on each part of the revenue cycle; verifying insurance eligibility and benefits, medical billing and coding, managing claims, denials, and accounts receivable, answering questions about medical bills, and more; taking care of each of these would be extremely difficult, especially on top of other duties.
The cycle is also time-consuming, taking valuable time and energy from your patients. You would need to find the time to appeal claim denials, make sure your billing and patient statements are accurate, manage insurance credentialing and contracts, et cetera. With all that time dedicated, you may also need to bring on more employees to pick up the slack, especially in case of vacation or illness to keep claims going out the door.
This is a heavy burden for any one person to bear. As you’re running your practice, don’t add this weight to your load. While you stay focused on your patients, let PractiSynergy take care of your medical billing and coding. With our smooth process to transition a practice from in-house billing to us, and a model that fits your needs and increases revenue, you won’t regret switching to PractiSynergy.
