IDTF’s (Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities) provide convenient, high quality imaging studies for many patients. However, imaging centers have been “ground zero” for Medicare and other reimbursement cuts during the past six years and more. While the pace of the reimbursement rate cuts may be slowing, the effect has been to put great pressure on IDTF efficiency, both in operations and in billing. As one example, pre-authorizations are now required by many payers and must be accurately reflected in the billing process. More complex examples arise in the IDTF coding process where issues such as “with and without contrast” frequently result in denials unless documentation and coding is done perfectly.
In today’s challenging environment, imaging centers often look for a coding and billing partner with proven expertise in IDTF billing and coding. AdvantEdge has that expertise and has delivered customized, expert imaging center billing solutions for many years.
