How to win at billing

In today’s ever more competitive environment, it is important to continually review and improve your practice. Simon Brignall shares ten simple rules to follow to ensure that your practice stays ahead of the pack.

1 Regularly review the way your practice is billing your work. This is to ensure you remain compliant with the ever-changing rules and regulations from private medical insurers and that you understand the implications that these could have on your income. 

A good example of this is that a lot more insurance companies are enforcing the six-month deadline for submitting your invoices. This means you could miss out on income if you fall behind on your billing.

2 Make sure your practice keeps up to date with the latest changes to Clinical Coding and Schedule Development group (CCSD) codes for your specialty and how the insurers have chosen to deal with these.
