Maximize Reimbursements and Revenue

"My practice is being sold to a young podiatrist with very little business knowledge. Our SMB Biller has done a great job of helping get everything ready for the sale and take over by the new owner. She has answered a million questions. I just wanted you to know how special She is and how much I appreciate everything the entire SMB organization has done for us." - Current SMB Client     Unsolicited Testimonials

Case Study - Maximizes Reimburesments

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

  • Critical Issue: The Practice was not receiving it's 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 sitting on phone hold 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 Provided: 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%.
