Shortage of billing and coding staff remains to be one of the major problems faced by medical practices. Providers find it difficult to enhance revenue and sail through billing challenges as finding and hiring qualified coders and billers is difficult and expensive.
How will the shortage affect your practice?
The market not just lacks qualified candidates but a large number of available coders and billers lack on-the-job experience, affecting the revenue cycle of medical practices. Billing and coding specialists are an important link between doctors, patients and insurance carriers. If a practice hires untrained or inexperienced billers and coders, bills will not get paid on time, insurance information will not get verified or utilized and patient data will remain unorganized.
