There are many reasons healthcare practices might outsource their billing to a professional medical billing service; confusing insurance requirements

, staffing problems and just keeping up with industry changes are a few examples. In the end though, the reasons most medical billing companies hear about come down to the two driving principles of any business ? Time and Money. This article discusses how medical billing services are able to create significant savings in time and money for healthcare providers.


Medical Billing Services Save Training and Research Time - Some readers might take the short view and think medical billing companies just enter data into a computer and send it off to a clearinghouse. In reality medical billing is a detailed process requiring specialized skills and in-depth knowledge of medical practice management, insurance industry practices, and the regulatory framework around state and federal laws. Professional medical billing companies invest countless hours in training and research to keep abreast of current codes, submission requirements

, industry trends and the needs of their clients.


Significant expenditures are also made to ensure medical billing companies are up to date on the latest software. In a constantly changing industry, software vendors are always finding new and better ways of supporting practice needs. It's not practicable for small or medium sized practices to dedicate the time necessary to stay on top of the latest innovations.


These investments of time by professional medical billing services are often not considered by providers, but they eliminate endless hours otherwise spent in seminars, meetings with vendors, or on the phone with clearinghouses and carriers. This time savings creates a valuable commodity for a practice seeking the edge necessary to keep up with a rigorous patient schedule.


Medical Billing Services Save Operational Time -Medical billing services are able to save operational time by leveraging the economy of scale and the efficiency of task specialization.


Professional medical billing companies

, by their very nature, create an economy of scale in maintaining a team of medical billing professionals to provide services across several practices. This structure creates a well trained pool of resources to manage each practice's needs rather than just one individual overseeing all billing functions. The team approach also removes interruptions to revenue flow that result from vacations, unexpected sick time and staff turnover.


Task specialization among teams further heightens the efficiency of medical billing companies. Through task specialization, a team of billers can accentuates individual skills and reduces distractions of other activities.


Consider a provider who sees an average of 30 patients per day, or a total of 150 encounters per week. The time required to generate and submit 150 patient claims and follow up with insurance carriers with a high lever of accuracy can take up most of the time of an in-house biller. But this is just the beginning. That same individual will also need to follow up on denied or partially paid claims

, researching why and resubmitting for further review. Patient invoices require additional time- printing, stuffing and mailing- as well as posting payments, running reports and providing detailed analysis on the current state of the practice; all this just to meet the standard offering of professional medical billing companies.


Through task specialization, medical billing companies might offer each of its clients several billers submitting claims and reviewing insurance payments with the highest level of accuracy. At the same time, the service might have other individuals or groups dedicated to managing patient invoices and questions across several practices with increased efficiency. This approach maximizes the time available for each activity by specialists with a greater knowledge of their roles

, and staff turnover are just a few factors increasing the costs of managing an efficient in-house billing program. Added to the operational overhead of day to day billing, softwarehardware maintenance, clearinghouse fees, postage, and so on

, the list of expenditures for practices is endless.


Good medical billing companies will design their services around covering all of these costs and immediately do away with the problems they create. To clearly demonstrate how medical billing services can save practices money, let's compare the core costs associated with in-house medical billing against working with a professional medical billing service.


Cost of In-House Billing: Our comparison begins with a typical practice with one or two providers. Let's assume this practice has a dedicated, in-house biller receiving an annual salary of $30,000, or about $14.50 per hour. The chart below outlines the additional costs of having a full time employee in the office to handle all aspects of medical billing. Base Pay --------------------------$30

,000 Medicare and Social Security ---------$2295 401K --------------------------------$1080 Disability -----------------------------$720 Healthcare --------------------------$5220 Time off -----------------------------$3270 Total labor for 1 in-house biller ------$42,585 Next, we'll need to consider materials and fees. An average practice will probably upgrade computers and software every 3 years at a cost of about $6,000. Spread out over those three years, we'll assume an average annual softwarehardware expenditure of $2000. Since our practice will send out its own patient statements
