For many physicians, it’s tough to sleep at night with the stress of not knowing if their billing is being properly taken care of. This was especially true for Dr. Tarek Shahbandar, founder of Pain Physicians of Indiana. In this blog post, he details the key discoveries that helped him save his medical practice.
Medical billing and coding is a complex process with many moving parts. It’s vital for physicians to have a team of medical billing and coding professionals who understand the nuances of the process and can help ensure that claims are being filed correctly.
“When I first founded my Indiana Practice, I used an outsourced team recommended by a friend of mine. However, I soon began hemorrhaging revenue because the company had one inexperienced biller that was managing everything. I then realized that my practice needed a dedicated team of experts, not a remote assistant who was less knowledgeable than me on our medical codes and billing process.”
Outsourcing medical billing and coding can be a great way to reduce both cost and managerial stress, but it’s important to make sure that you have a team of experts who understand your specific needs.
“My first discovery was that revenue cycle management teams have to be both experienced and agile, supporting my practice at any time. ”
After he put together a team to optimize his billing and coding, Dr. Shahbandar realized that he could share the discoveries and knowledge he had so painfully collected over the years. This led to him founding Expert Medical Billing.
“Expert Medical Billing is the company I wish had existed when I was first trying to save my medical practice. We’re a company made up of teams of medical billing and coding experts who understand the unique needs of Physician Practice Owners. We work with practices all over the country and help them improve their bottom line.”
Within a few months of helping peers and colleagues with their practice management, Dr. Shahbandar had another realization.
“every practice is different and the approach I used to save my practice won’t work for my peers or clients. Teams need to be built around many factors, including speciality, location, size, and even factors like patient demographic and churn rate.”
At Expert Medical Billing, combine unique and tailored solutions with enterprise-grade technology and expertise. We work with our clients to understand their specific needs and build a team of medical billing and coding experts who can help them optimize their revenue cycle.
