One Source Medical Billing and Covid-19
Posted on July 8th, 2020 / Under Medical Billing / With No Comments
You can’t watch a single news broadcast that doesn’t talk about Covid-19, but as a medical provider, you don’t have to watch the news to be reminded of how Covid-19 is impacting your practice. You are dealing with Covid-19 on a daily basis, perhaps with a decreased patient schedule or possibly an increased patient schedule now that things are opening up again.
In-office visits take longer with social distancing requirements, checking temperatures, and extra sanitizing between patients. Unavoidable staff reductions have made this process more difficult.
Worse yet, maybe some of your staff has contracted Covid-19. No matter what the cause, if your staff decrease is in the billing department, your billing process has been disrupted. Billing disruption means a decline in your bottom line. One Source Medical Billing can help you get back on track.
Maybe you are conducting a lot of telemedicine visits. Telemedicine is being used to address most of the non-urgent health issues with three main telehealth options.
• Telehealth Visits: Phone or video conference via a telecommunication device.
• Virtual Check-Ins: Contact by phone (or another secure communication portal) to determine if an office visit or other intervention is needed.
• E-Visits: Patient and provider communication through a secure online portal.
The increase in telemedicine visits requires new filing procedures that your billing department has never encountered. The transition to telemedicine has been difficult for many healthcare practices due to the frequent changes in payment requirements and new codes being established for visits related to the coronavirus.
