The urgent care billing is quite different from other medical billing. In fact, there is no special regulation for urgent care for Medicare, this is because Medicare does not identify urgent care service as a separate service from any other outpatient physician’s office services. With the billing process starting right from the front door, an urgent care domain has a lot of scopes to earn a huge amount of immediate revenue. And it is only possible if you have good financial policies to begin with. As the process starts immediately due to no pre registration process, in an urgent care process a person not only has to keep a track of:
- Basic demographic, patient information, patient medical history, address, the reason for visit etc
- Name of the insurance company, policy number and primary care providers number is also essential in the front end urgent care process etc
The task or job of the front end work of an urgent care billing process is complicated and tricky.
Today the urgent care has reached its own peak for its increasing popularity and also for its efficient solution for treatment and healthcare. It is further expected to reach a market worth of $26 billion by 2023. However, despite such demand, healthcare practices are failing to achieve a seamless operation and hence 90% of practices are opting for outsourcing their urgent care billing services.
