Following are some of the most common Neurology billing challenges faced by Neurologists:
High-end training requirement:
A Neurology medical billing specialist must be familiar with critical electronic systems like EHR & EMR. These systems help with the digital documentation of patient’s medical records. Where EMR can access data from only one provider, EHR can do the same from multiple providers. Some programs such as Medicaid require EHR before receiving payments in the form of incentives.
Talking of EHR and EMR, one requires proper training to operate both. Neurology billers & coders are also required to renew their licenses every 2 years. However, renewing the license also calls for extensive study since they need to be familiar with the recent changes/updates.
Filing multiple claims & coding errors:
Based on neurology services, you can be asked to file multiple claims in a day. Since some billers are not equipped with the required technology to file multiple claims, they may have to file each claim individually. Their inability to file multiple claims at once results in delays and the process of Neurology billing slows down.
Even though Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) is replacing a huge chunk of coding, human coders are still in sizeable demand to perform the needful. As a result, errors such in typing result in an increasing number of claim denials.
