As the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was implemented many oncologists feared that in years to come many oncologists will have to embrace the administrative work and it will become more about coding rather than patient care. Oncologists had to deal with changing regulatory requirements of insurance companies and modifiers that take almost 30 percent of every physician’s time.
Legion Healthcare Solutions (LHS) over the past several years worked with many oncologists who deal with stressful patient conditions and rapid technological change. To make this transition of oncology physicians, we deploy billing managers for each oncology practice, who understand the practices moto of patient care. Dealing with evaluation and management codes is a challenge for any physician and Legion understands this, we deploy our certified coders for each claim.
“Each oncology practice we have worked with over the years have been different, some cover very specific part or refer the patient to some other expert. In oncology practice, patient care is most important hence usually we get 24/7 calls about urgent patient inquiries that we need to verify from an insurance company. Being an oncologist is not an easy job sometimes they need to give the terminal stage news to family members which is draining. Understanding this Legion deploys a 24/7 billing manager who takes all the back-end office task under their cover.”
