Primary Care
« on: November 16, 2017, 12:48:01 PM »
Hi everyone,

Thanks for all the helpful replies and information everyone shares on here.

We've done a specialist billing for some time, but am now adding on a primary care/internal medicine outpatient office. Was wondering if there was someone on here with experience in this area who would be willing to provide some mentoring. Going over common pitfalls, best billing/coding practices, areas commonly missed that provide increased revenue opportunity for practice (they physician himself is new to PCP outpatient, and so is looking to us with help in these areas).

thanks!

I have been billing for an Internal Medicine doctor for a few years now, although my specialty is podiatry. IM was super easy to learn, so that is a good thing! I don't have time unfortunately to seriously mentor, but I can tell you a few things if I know more about the kind of practice the doctor will have. Things like:
1. Age range of patients
2. Primarily Medicare/commercial, or will he take Medicaid?
3. Will services beyond office visits will he be providing? Some PCP/IM docs do a lot of services, others are very limited.
