Navigate the DME Billing Industry
Durable medical equipment (DME) billing is a heavily inspected industry, so implementing and maintaining a billing environment is essential for success. It helps to reduce claim denials due to the constantly changing payor policies. It allows you to streamline your revenue cycles.
Implementing these three billing practices can help to enhance your billing process.
#1 Dedicate a Person to Monitor Guidelines Changes
Selecting a specific person or team of people who monitor potential guideline changes daily will help to increase your clean claims submission.
#2 Review Medical Necessity Documents
Ensure someone reviews the claim documents for medical necessity and fulfills all payer guidelines and billing procedures. This includes checking that all physical documents are included, and billing information is correct.
#3 Conduct a Final Check Before Claims Submission
Have a person or team manage a billing procedure or process that reviews all claims before they are submitted.
Increase Your Revenue and Resources
When you maintain a consistent billing and clean claim submission process, you will see your resources (time and staff) and revenue significantly increase. For many DME providers, this can be a demanding process. During this process, you’re constantly working with Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, and private insurance plan’s rules and regulations that have their reimbursement standards and clinical coverage guidelines.
