Challenges in Cardiology Billing

Cardiology practices are no strangers to auditing. The cardiology practice has a multitude of different factors and units for billing. The practice of cardiology encompasses a wide array of medical services that makes it a necessity for professionals who practice cardiology to completely document each and every billable procedure or interaction with the patient.

Factors include complications based on the patient’s current state before being examined by a medical professional. A patient’s current state affects the level of skill and expertise required of a medical practitioner to assess and attend to the patient’s condition.

Cardiology billing is inclusive of all practices related to cardiology, including procedural and diagnostic services. Accurate documentation of all the procedures performed and all diagnostic services attended to is required to make a convincing and conclusive cardiology billing. Accurate documentation requires a working knowledge of cardiology codes, coding rules, and compliance standards.

An inaccurate cardiovascular billing procedure may lead to a very steep shrinkage of revenue returns. After all, cardiovascular procedures and diagnostic services are rarely a simple line of treatment that can easily be justified.

Insurance companies oftentimes require a justification from the medical services provider that they were present during the time that the patient was being treated, either through a procedure or through diagnostic services. Coronis Health will be able to walk you through the effective and appropriate ways to document cardiology procedures.
