Oncology coding is the bedrock of your oncology practice. When done correctly, your practice is on the path to success. If there are mistakes, your oncology coding and billing is likely in need of attention.
Because oncology drugs are extremely expensive, it is recommended that each practice employ a dedicated oncology biller and coder. This is often not the case and the coding and billing is left in the hands of high turnover and low wage employees. These improperly coded charges can have a dramatic effect on the oncology revenue cycle.
Outsourced Oncology Coding
When a dedicated oncology biller is not possible or personnel, training and turnover are issues within your oncology billing department, outsourcing your billing and coding can be a very attractive option.
That’s where Oncology Convergence, Inc. can help. Whether you are in need of radiation oncology billing, medical oncology billing or both, we employ oncology focused billers and coders so that you don’t have to. This singular focus on oncology allows our coders to develop a high degree of expertise.
Eliminate Oncology Revenue Cycle Mistakes
We often get calls when a billing and coding issue is discovered. In the hospital setting, it may be at the end of the first fiscal year after a new acquisition has been completed. In a freestanding oncology practice, it may be when a biller leaves for vacation or is replaced by a new employee. Discovering issues at one of these times often leads to or precipitates a crisis situation where cash flow is diminished or the viability of the business is at stake.
When you have outsourced oncology coding and billing from OCI, we won’t let that happen. You can take care of your patients, we’ll take care of your revenue cycle.
If you find that there is a crisis situation, we can help you eliminate the problem by using our proprietary Oncology Revenue Recovery software.
