Urgent Care Billing

Urgent care centers give patients access to quality health care when they need it. As a health care provider, you have the responsibility to ensure that the processes are streamlined and go smoothly for your patients and the business. A practice’s inability to keep up with administrative tasks, specifically with urgent care billing, is detrimental to growth and success. 

       Common Mistakes in Urgent Care Billing

  1. The revenue cycle for your urgent care center starts at your front desk. Poor front desk practices can result in lost revenue and a disproportionate number of patient accounts in collections. 
  2. Your contracts with payers ensure that your practice generates income. Failure to set up contracts leaves you ineligible to accept insurance, which negatively affects your patient acquisition. Moreover, poorly negotiated contracts often result in underpaid services.   
  3. Credentialing deals with the process where insurance companies verify your practice’s qualifications as a medical service provider. Failure to follow guidelines results in incorrectly processed claims. 
  4. A sophisticated records system does not prevent filing errors. Incorrect coding & documentation can lead to losses in revenue. 
  5. Incomplete documentation results in missed charges. An inefficiently run billing department & process will cost your practice money.
