Dermatology practices often deal with claim denials and with rising medical audits that result in far greater complexities. Dermatology billing is considered a demanding by billers as it renders complicated tasks for medical, surgical, and cosmetic procedures resulting in delay or no reimbursement. Legion Healthcare Solutions (LHS) understand the complexities involved in dermatology billing, it’s estimated that a dermatology claim on average might consume about 12 hours of week for paperwork and coding.
The rising dermatology guidelines is another challenge every clinic has to go through with new guidelines involving a change in the documentation for E/M with a focus on time, course of nature for presenting the problem and counselling. Current guidelines involve medical decision-making, examination, and history.
“With any medical billing company that accepts any dermatology client, there is a constant impetus on medical procedures that are required even before the patient usually arrives. The documentation is usually detailed and does the new treatment require regular medical visits or drug. The new billing guidelines are built to improve the decision making for both payer and dermatologists.”
