Medical Billers and Coders’ professionals Extend Support to Mental Health Billing in San Diego and Chicago
The US Public Health Service has highlighted the fact that nearly one in five Americans suffers from some form of mental health disorders and that only a fraction of those affected receive treatment.
Illinois and California are the two states with the highest concentration of mental health patients among adults touching 38.6%, according to the 2010 data on Kaiserhealthnews.org. New York City is a close contender with 36.1% and 9th place among the 50 states. To compound the problem, Illinois also happens to be a state with a high 21.4% underserved population when it comes to mental health care services.
The physicians located in Chicago, Illinois, Californian cities such as San Diego and Los Angeles, and New York City have to cater to an ever-increasing Mental healthcare patient volume. Any successful intervention in their support will inevitably need to establish expert professional support for their non-core activities such as billing, coding, and other affiliated services in RCM, allowing them to focus on patient care.
Medicalbillersandcoders.com has extended its established network of billers and coders with substantial hands-on experience in Mental Health billing and coding to support these physicians and their overworked staff.
Mental Healthcare is a busy specialty due to its interdisciplinary nature and also involves very complex billing and coding services. On top of that, there is a much greater Mental Health claims denial rate vis-à-vis many other specialties which calls for stringent pro-active measures in claims submission for effective reimbursement.
It seems imperative for these physicians to enroll very experienced specialized professionals for an efficient reimbursement process, so that the physicians can concentrate on providing optimum and meaningful patient care.
Along with these responsibilities, Mental healthcare physicians also have to ensure compliance of the recent healthcare regulations such as HIPAA 5010, ICD10, PQRI, CPOE (Computerized Physician Order Entry), HIE (Health Information Exchange) along with the latest EMR updates. Along with this, the various projected healthcare reforms such as EHR, PQRS, and ePrescribing as also the imminent inclusion of a large percentage of hitherto uninsured population are going to escalate the already burgeoning problem of expert billing and coding support to Mental healthcare specialists in New York, Chicago and San Diego as well as neighboring cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
