Let Us Audit Your Billing Coding and Discover Lost Revenue
Why Do I need a Coding Audit?
Regular audits can identify errors that can often get missed affecting profitability as well as put the ASC at risk for a compliance breach. Surgery Center Management Services has stepped in numerous times to rescue a fledgling ASC and once an ASC is deep in denials with high patient and insurance accounts receivables, the profitability of the center is in jeopardy. The risks and consequences are too high for NOT completing a coding audit.
Denials and Rejections
Surgery Center Management Services has experience handling coding and billings issues. Sometimes the error is on the insurance side like when they fail to upload contracts correctly resulting in incorrect denials. Sometimes the error is an internal workflow issue and other times it’s a simple outdated coding issue. Since codes are updated annually, a regular audit is always prudent.
Surgery Center Management Services will investigate denials, compare OP reports to billed charges, research diagnoses to insure they are payable and supported by the correct codes and documentation. Surgery Center Management Services will compare your fee schedules and State Medicaid guidelines to see if claims are processing per contract and then work past the denials. When necessary, an appeal can be issued.
Surgery Center Management Services makes sure your coding and billing is complete focusing on coding, documentation, insurance verification, authorizations, implant accountability and workflow to make sure your coding and billing is complete and covers all fee schedules.

In addition, Surgery Center Management Services only gets paid after you do, except for a monthly minimum for management services.
