Benefits of Outsourcing DME Billing to Improve Your Revenue

The Durable Medical Equipment (DME) billing industry is constantly evolving, which requires providers to stay up to date on the current trends. When claims management tasks go unchecked, claims denials increase and follow-up doesn’t occur, leading to lost revenue.  

The harsh reality of DME billing leads many business owners to outsourcing options to increase their revenue. There are many benefits of outsourcing DME billing services that’ll allow you to free up time and resources and increase your claims reimbursements.

Benefits of Outsourcing DME Billing Services 

Most time and resource-intensive tasks for DME providers are securing payment information from Medicare and other insurance firms. Here are five benefits of outsourcing DME billing services to save you time and money.  

#1 Increased Revenue 

The number one reason many companies outsource is to increase their revenue stream by:

  • Securing faster collection times
  • Reducing aging AR
  • Streamlining your AR process 
  • Reducing audit risks 
  • Addressing possible issues in the revenue cycle
  • Decreasing denial resolution time

#3 Staying Compliant with Changing Regulations 

As mentioned above, the DME billing industry constantly makes changes. If you don’t have the time and resources to stay up to date, the amount of denied claims can increase. Part of a DME billing company’s responsibility is to manage those changes and make sure your submitted claims meet current regulations.
