As a radiologist, your challenge is to have a tight focus on getting every collectible dollar at a lower cost of billing. This is no easy feat as payment responsibility shifts from institutional payers to patients, whose dollars are more difficult to collect. More and more consumer-driven, high-deductible health insurance plans such as Health Savings Accounts mean mounting reimbursement pressures. In this forbidding environment, radiologists across the country are entrusting their billing to Zotec Partners, and experiencing consistent and cost effective improvements in reimbursement reliability and cost-effectiveness.
As specialists in radiology billing, we understand your business. Whether you’re a general radiologist, a sub-specialist or an interventionalist, and whether you work with hospitals, imaging centers or outside facilities, we know yours is a high-volume practice. We understand the importance of capturing, auditing and processing every procedure to maximize your income – after all, a missed charge from any facility means you’re working for free. To make sure you’re paid everything you’ve negotiated, we load into our software your contracted insurance rates and track any variances, so you have a clear and concise picture of your business to make decisions. We appeal short payments and follow up to keep pressure on payers, and our specialized phone representatives handle all incoming and outgoing phone calls.
We give the same close attention to coding, employing radiology-specific coding expertise to ensure accuracy, and a special team dedicated to interventional coding. One of our latest investments is the development of automated coding assisted technology integrated with our billing software, meaning accuracy and optimum payment for the work you do. We also work hand-in-hand with radiologists to provide ongoing education in the area of dictation to optimize reimbursement. In the majority of practices we work with, we find there is significant unclaimed revenue due to inaccurate dictation and coding (…or worse, inaccurate dictation and coding leading to potentially fraudulent billing).
Zotec Partners has the expertise and the technology needed to produce the very best reimbursement results for your radiology practice or imaging business. That explains why our current radiologist clients are expanding their use of our services and renewing their Zotec contracts after enjoying lower overhead and increased payments.
