What is FQHC Medical Billing

FQHC medical billing is one of your business’s cornerstones. It is a complex, time-consuming task requiring extensive knowledge of billing and coding practices that will help facilitate optimal reimbursements. Medical billing covers the process of submitting and following up on claims with insurance providers in order to receive timely payment for services rendered by healthcare providers. In other words, medical billing will translate a particular healthcare service into a billing claim. A medical biller will follow the claim to ensure the facility receives reimbursement for the work performed. A skilled and knowledgeable biller can significantly help optimize revenue performance for any facility. 

What is FQHC Revenue Cycle Management?

An FQHC facility must ensure an efficient and effective revenue cycle process. The revenue cycle consists of all the administrative functions, clinical processes, and software applications that contribute to and manage the registration, filing, charging, billing, payment, and collection tasks associated with a patient encounter. The FQHC’s life cycle begins when the patient is scheduled and ends when the account is paid or denied.

And because of the wide array of services it provides, as well as its unique approach to healthcare, FQHCs will encounter specific challenges including:
