BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Barton Associates is excited to announce the launch of its “Billing for Locum Tenens Services” article, which offers guidance on how to bill Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies for common locum tenens staffing scenarios.
As a leading provider of locum tenens physicians and nurse practitioners, Barton Associates is committed to solving its clients’ temporary staffing needs. Hospitals and physician practices that work with Barton Associates and other locum tenens agencies frequently express confusion and frustration over how to properly bill locum tenens services. Facilities and practices that do not properly bill for locum tenens professional services can potentially miss out on significant reimbursements to which they are entitled and fail to realize a return on their investment.
The editorial team at Barton Associates consulted the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and the latest Medicare billing manuals to create a locum tenens billing guide that covers traditional locum tenens arrangements, extended assignments, staff augmentation, and new service lines. The editorial team also created a one-page workflow infographic that helps medical billers answer the questions needed to determine the appropriate billing method.
“Barton Associates offers flexible physician and nurse practitioner staffing solutions that help hospitals and practices obtain and maintain the staff needed to effectively manage patient volume, augment staff during high-volume periods, create new service lines, and, ultimately, grow. Organizations that can properly bill for locum tenens services are able to maximize revenue streams, optimize patient access, and ensure continuity of care,” said Jason Daeffler, Marketing Director, Barton Associates. “We are very excited to help our clients understand the billing rules associated with locum tenens staffing so they can get the most out of their locum tenens investment.”
