Our Services for Phlebology Practices


Billing Services

American Physician primarily provides billing and collection services for phlebology practices. We currently collect over two million dollars in phlebology services per month for our several practices.

Timely and Consistent Billing

We strive to submit your claims by the next business day after receipt.

Patient Collections

Once the insurance company has paid, we send statements and call on delinquent patient accounts.

Collections

Should a claim not be paid within thirty days, we begin our collection processes to determine why you have not yet been paid.

Coding Review

The staff is trained in phlebology coding and has watched various procedures. Ensuring the correct codes with the correct modifiers and proper diagnosis is critical to smooth reimbursement.

Clearing House Reports

These reports are reviewed every day and any submission errors are identified, corrected, and resubmitted.

Chart Notes

The payers frequently request documentation for phlebology services.  We have found a few ways to ensure documentation submission and speed the payment processes.

Appeals and Denials

We have an appeals specialist with over six years of phlebology claims experience.


Consulting Services

If you own an existing phlebology practice, American Physician would like to extend an offer to share our expertise with you.

A detailed examination of your practice patterns, billed charges, and services provided as compared to a baseline developed by working with over forty other phlebology practices.

We can help you determine a fair compensation and benefits package for your coworkers, assist with other HR issues, and provide general support in this area.
