Billing errors
« on: October 13, 2008, 10:11:10 AM »
I am studying to be a medical biller.  I have a question I need to get answered.  I did not know where else to go.  I need to know some ways to avoid common billing errors.  If you can help me I would appreciate it.

Thanks
Debbie

Debbie,
   The best way to avoid making common billing errors is to educate yourself the best you can.  The more you know and understand about medical billing and insurance, the less likely you will make common errors.  Most errors are made from carelessness or not understanding CMS forms and insurance billing. 

I am not aware of a source that has information on billing errors.  Sometimes insurance websites will give you the 'top submission errors.'  The following is a medicare website:

Good luck
