Urology billing and coding services involve billing and coding for all diagnoses & treatments provided to correct the urinary system’s dysfunctions and the male reproductive system. Billing for urology services can be more convoluted than other specialties due to the nature of its codes & terminologies.

Urology billing and coding requires specialized expertise and knowledge, and only a urology billing specialist can handle its nuances. Urology tends to overlap with other specialties such as oncology, gastroenterology, andrology, pediatrics, endocrinology, and gynecology, making it distinctive & challenging to understand.

As Urologists focus on delivering excellent medical care, often, they lose track of their revenue cycle. Non-payment or underpayment for urology services rendered can substantially impact the practice as urology procedures are typically costly. An in-house billing team can be helpful but may cause many denials on account of the lack of expertise. Outsourcing to a focused urology billing service provider like Medical Billing Wholesalers, who is familiar with urology codes and terminologies, can offer better control over collections & denials to healthcare organizations.
