All surgical assistant (PA, NP, CRNFA, etc.) billing is unique and often times
difficult for those who are not familiar with this type
of billing. Each
insurance company has their own set of
guidelines they require for assistant billing.
surgeon you assist may offer to have his staff bill for
you, but are they capable of billing correctly? Do they
know how to appeal your denials?
We have been billing for surgical assistants for over a
decade. We know how to communicate with the
insurance companies that are unfamiliar with your
claims. We are understanding to those patients that
receive your bill and did not know an assistant was
present for their procedure. We are reassuring to those
offices that receive insurance payments on your behalf
and are unaware of what to do with the check.
We understand that you have professional relationships
with your surgeons you assist so we make the transition
of billing through our company as easy as possible. Once
you are established with us, all you need to do is fax
us the face sheet. We request the codes, bill the
insurance, and do the follow up of claims. The insurance
checks can either come to you or to us where upon we will make a copy and mail to you on a weekly basis. We are not on your account; checks are made out directly to you. We will invoice the surgeon
for any checks issued through their office and we will
bill the patients for copays, deductibles, etc. We also
pride ourselves in our aggressiveness of appeals.
All of these services are provided and at the end of
the month we only charge a percentage of your
collections. There are no extra costs to you if a claim
needs to be appealed or submitted more than once.
