Anesthesiology Billing in Texas
Most Texas anesthesiologists collect LESS than they should receive for their services. Why? Because most medical and anesthesia billing companies collect the easy 80%, and leave the rest – as much as 15% of the collectable total – on the table. That’s YOUR money they aren’t collecting.
At Fusion Anesthesia Solutions, we fight to collect every penny that you are owed. We typically increase our clients’ revenue by as much as 15% – just by collecting the money that they were already owed, but didn’t collect.
What would up to 15% more revenue mean for your business?
Fusion Anesthesia will maximize the revenue for your anesthesia practice. Here are a few of the many ways we maximize your anesthesia revenue:
1. Line-by-Line Reconciliation
After analyzing hundreds of thousands of claims, Fusion Anesthesia can prove that anesthesiologists are consistently underpaid by most payers.
The payors are cheating you. And most anesthesia billing companies let them.
The only way to combat these systemic underpayments is to reconcile every payment versus contracted rates on a line-by-line basis.
Using our proprietary database of contracted rates paired with customized software, we cross-check every line item of every claim to be sure that it meets that payer’s contracted rate with that provider. When we find a mismatch, we automatically reject the payment.
We kick back a lot of underpayments. Don’t leave that money on the table.
As far as we know, we’re the only billing service who does this.
2. Anesthesia specific billers and coders
All of our coders are certified by the AAPC and deeply experienced with anesthesia billing. They know every anesthesia code, modifier, qualifying circumstance, anesthesia type and have a complete understanding of how to determine the correct run time for anesthesia services. You want someone who knows all the nuances of Texas anesthesia billing and coding.
There’s no substitute for specialized expertise.
Anesthesiology is a unique specialty.
You need anesthesia billing specialists who understand it thoroughly.
Generic “medical billing” software is not going to bring your anesthesiology group to maximum collections. While there are certainly some commonalities across billing processes for the various specialties, there are also some key differences.
Fusion Anesthesia’s systems are a hybrid of commercial billing systems, custom-developed reconciliation and reporting software and databases… all developed and maintained specifically for anesthesia billing.
At Fusion Anesthesia, we check claims multiple times through automated systems, humans in-house, and statistical sampling of all claims for auditing.
