Yeah. It’s hard for the mom and pop small practice to compete with the big amc in terms of billing.Why? So the new company can allow us to bill in violation of CMS rules? That is a set up for an audit and subsequent fines.
Granted, we DO need a new billing company, but that is another story altogether.
Team health estimated my old mom and pop private practice place left about 750k on the table with our previous billing practice. And that’s BEFORE their increased insurance collections due to them having more power than a mom and pop small practice.
