Description

Technology updates are expensive to implement and maintain and since you have a busy practice to run, outsourcing coding and billing requirements makes a lot of sense. It also relieves you from the burden of HIPAA compliance when handling claim filing and billing tasks. However, if your medical billing company has not updated their software or trained staff for handling HIPAA changes, it might result in damage to your reputation and reimbursements.

Practices need to understand that HIPAA-5010 is as important as implementation of ICD-10. ICD-10 coding will not be possible if you fail to implement the 5010 version. The new version will apply to transactions with all payers, including Medicare and Medicaid and also regulate the transmission of PHI.

So, you need to find out if the outsourced company is capable of handling the stringent requirements because only then the chances of claim denials and security breaches will be eliminated.
