The difference between thriving and unsuccessful medical practices is outstanding, professional medical billers. The medical billers at MedCore assist your practice in managing payments, invoicing, and insurance claims.

What is Medical Billing?

The process of creating medical records for submission to insurance companies in order to get reimbursed for medical services provided by clinicians and other HCP is known as medical billing. After converting a medical treatment into a billing claim, the medical biller tracks the claim to ensure the organization is paid for the completed work. A skilled medical biller can boost the income for the doctor’s office or healthcare facility.

While we provide staffing solutions for both medical billing and medical coding, they are not the same. They are very similar professions and equally as important to a successful healthcare organization. However, medical coders go over the patient record and extract information that can be billed, which they then convert into standardized codes.

In contrast, medical billers coordinate payments for healthcare services with HCP, insurance companies, and┬ápatients. Billers first gather the required data. This contains the patient’s demographics, medical background, insurance status, and the treatments or services they have had.

Additionally, MedCore files claims for both primary and secondary insurance billing.
