Having a successful billing cycle depends a lot on the processes and systems you use in your practice to mitigate insurance claims and billing. And, when it comes to your claim management options it typically comes down to two options: managing in-house with a clearinghouse solution or outsourcing to a billing service.
What works best for one practice isn't necessarily the right solution for another. If you have a rockstar biller(s) in your office, the right clearinghouse solution might give them the tools they need to efficiently and quickly stay on top of your claim cycle. But, if your practice struggles with things like high biller turnover, a high volume of claims to keep up with, or a lack of transparency into claim performance - a billing service might be your best option for maximizing on your reimbursements.
