New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2006 –
In a busy medical office, many procedures might be performed on any given day, and each of those procedures has its own code for the purpose of medical continuity and accurate billing. The multiple thousands of procedures, and therefore codes, however, have driven most health care providers to outsource medical billing.
On February 16, 2006 the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was finalized and enacted, establishing national standards for health care transactions. According to Dr. Jay B Stockman, "This type of reform has created a need for qualified individuals who can utilize the tools of this legislation, and assure full compliance, and maximum reimbursement." Doing otherwise could lead to mistakes with dire consequences for the health care institution.
Stockman has crafted a web site designed to provide information on medical billing software and the career of medical billing to bring attention to this important aspect of health care, both as an issue to watch, and an opportunity to follow. Stockman tells us, "medical billing and related occupations continue to be the fastest growing opportunities in health care."
The web site is located at http://all-medical-billing-software.com
Medical billing and the software associated with it are becoming a big business within the health care industry. As Stockman tells us, "companies and practices are looking for experienced and educated individuals; the legal consequences of incorrect billing could be devastating."
In the informative front page article, Dr. Stockman goes on to say, "Insurance institutions and government agencies are investing huge resources to control claims’ fraud, abuse, and establish some degree of reimbursement parity. As a result, more insurance companies, and health care facilities are looking to medical billing experts for help."
Dr. Stockman’s web site provides useful information and resources to medical billing and the associated software. There is no cost associated with the use of the web site. It also includes a section of the site containing valuable articles on various aspects of medical billing as well as a discussion forum.
"These realities coupled with government regulations, and health insurance guidelines have contributed to the strong demand for experienced medical coders and billers," Stockman concludes.
