Pediatric Billing & Coding Services
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that diagnoses & treats diseases in infants, children & adolescents. Per the American Academy of Pediatrics, pediatric care refers to care provided for people up to 21. Pediatricians deal with numerous conditions, procedures, treatments, and preventive healthcare.
Pediatric billing & coding is different from other specialties as it requires the billers & coders to be aware of elements such as vaccines. Careful coding must be performed for vaccination records so that the practice gets paid appropriately. Pediatrics can be stressful due to its innumerable modifiers & bundling requirements.
The in-house staff in pediatric practices have more on their plates than other specialties, as dealing with children can be challenging. The front-office team should ensure a shorter waiting time since children are susceptible to contagious diseases and can be very restless. They also maintain vaccination records, age change documents, and government compliance policies. Specialized coding and billing personnel are needed to avoid compromising patient care and ensuring accuracy in processing.
Whatever be the size of your pediatric practice, outsourcing your billing & coding requirements to a seasoned pediatric billing service provider like Medical Billing Wholesalers can help you save costs and infuse new energy into your revenue cycle. We offer prior authorizations, claim submission, accounts receivable, denials management, and credentialing services.
