Our Services for Peripheral Vascular Practices


Billing Services

We provide these services to peripheral vascular practices exclusively. We collect over four million in vascular claims every month. Let us put our expertise to work for you.

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 monthly statements and call each month on delinquent accounts.

Collections

Should a claim not be paid within thirty days, we call the payer to determine why you have not received your money.

Coding Review

The staff is trained in peripheral vascular coding. 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 before they pay a claim. We will gather the documentation and submit it for you.

Appeals and Denials

Denials are a fact of life with today’s insurance companies. We have significant expertise in submitting appeals and overturning denials.

Reports

Every month our clients receive a packet of reports showing trends and monthly activity.

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