It is a known fact that a continuous flow of cash is the main concern for any physical therapy service provider as well as a difficult aspect for clinic owners to determine. The occurrence of errors in coding, denial of claims as well as the time spent with the exchange of correspondence through the postal services can all reduce the turnaround time on the physical therapy billing payments. Additionally, it can even swiftly affect the overall performance of a particular physical therapy clinic.
The future of physical therapy billing all depends on the proper use of the EMR system. By utilizing the physical therapy EMR which is strongly promoted by Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist and supporter of the EMR system, it provides superior coding options that can greatly reduce errors and denials, while at the same time supplying electronic claim submissions that are delivered to their destination right away. The required submissions are individually transmitted to clients or even sent as batches at the end of the day.
Nitin Chhoda said “Physical therapy services lack proper documentation and coding in the processing of claims to ensure that all clients will receive the required reimbursements that they are entitled.”
He even added that with the physical therapy EMR, the electronic submissions performed can help minimize the need for paper billing as well as the invoicing. It can help reduce the overall costs if the traditional methods are used. The EMR system utilizes electronic submissions that are proven to be highly efficient, environmentally friendly as well as allowing physical therapists to collect their services in hours instead of weeks. The electronic claim submissions through the EMR system are highly secure and HIPAA-compliant.
The physical therapy software for billing is responsible for eliminating all errors as well as remarkably minimizing the denials, requests for explanation and even post-payment audits. In case of issues, they are tackled swiftly and efficiently with the help of the electronic methods.
