Fact - According to CMS's medicare coverage database, there are over 471 million different coding combination that podiatrists must follow to correctly file claims. This number increases exponential when the 16 different medicare districts and all of the commerical insurances are included. No computer program can handle this many code combinations just for podiatrists.

  • Expert human podiatriy billers achieve maximum reimbursements - Automated Scrubber only achieve average to less than average results.
  • Expert human billers respond quickly to changes in insurance claim rules - Automated Srubbers take a long time and many layers of approval to change their rules.
  • Expert human billers handle false negatives - Automated Scrubbers can flood your staff with false negatives. This leads to an environment where problems are ignored because the staff thinks it is just another false negative.
  • Only expert human billers are able to adapt to your specific needs - Automated Scrubblers are not adaptable to individual providers.
  • Only expert human billers are able to quickly answer your billing questions - Automated Scrubblers code is not available for your review.
  • Automated Scrubbers remove multiple edits from the claim scrubber to “get claims out the door.” - SMB's expert billers handle multiple edits with ease.

Increase profits and revenue - Case Study

  • Situation: A Doctor and the Office Manager, Podiatry Practice

  • Critical Issue: The Practice was not receiving its rightfully due reimbursements from government and insurance payors.

  • Reasons: The massive amount of regulations, rules, procedures and constant changes by government and insurance payors confuse the Practice's time strapped office staff. The payors used aggressive tactics to challenge and delay reimbursements to the Practice. In many cases, the office staff had to choose between serving the patients or holding on the phone for over an hour with the payors to get the EOB issues correctly resolved.

  • Capabilities: The Doctor and the Office Manager said they needed a service that would protect the Practice's interest and represent the Practice to the government and insurance payors. The service needed to be current and understand all of the payors' massive regulations, rules, procedures and constant changes. The service also needed the skills and perseverance to maximize the Practice's rightfully due reimbursements.

  • SMB Provides: SMB provides the Doctor and the Office Manager these capabilities.

  • Results: SMB stopped the payors' practice of bundling procedures and increased the Practice's reimbursements from these procedures 50% to 100%. For other procedures, SMB increased the Practice's reimbursements from payors by 20%.
