Emergency Department Billing
Every day, Emergency Departments face coding and billing challenges. The ED automatically brings with it limited or missing demographic information for many emergency cases and an inability to collect patient responsible amounts in advance. In addition, many insurance companies routinely deny charges for simple procedures done in the ER: e.g. stitches or splints. Plus the challenge of whether X Rays and other tests are “billed first” by the ED physician or another specialist. As a result, emergency departments and their hospital partners look for a coding and billing partner with specific expertise in emergency departments; e.g. guidance on documentation and coding, strong appeals processes, etc.
