Genesis Diagnostics' Nursing Home Software
Outsourcing medical coding and billing has become a popular solution for all types of medical institutions and can be particularly helpful for those running nursing homes. It is important to work with a professional organization, such as Medicare MSOs, with certified coders and staff who are all trained in HIPAA best practices and have experience with medical billing for nursing homes.
Why Outsource Nursing Home Billing and Coding?
Running a nursing home requires medical staff to be up to date on patient care and to be available to deal with emergencies. This does not create an ideal environment for detailed paperwork, especially if employees are expected to do more than just medical billing. This is far more efficient for specialists who only deal with coding and billing, so medical personnel can focus on patient care. These are some aspects that are important for nursing homes.
Complex medical rules
Genesis Diagnostics provides coverage for nursing homes, but there are many conditions that must be met, and they can be very confusing. The patient must receive a skilled level of care related to a recent hospitalization, etc. Medical billers must be attentive to the details of the coding for these patients or claims will be denied.
Genesis Diagnostics covers nursing home stays that require skilled care for a limited time, but there are many who must remain in a nursing home but not in relation to a condition for which they have recently been in hospital and were admitted. There are some private insurers that provide long term care plans and Medicaid provides coverage for those who need to live in a nursing home, but do not have the money to pay for it. The amounts and conditions under which Medicaid applies vary.
Most services and medications provided in a nursing home are included in the “consolidated billing” daily rate set by medical centers but there are several categories of exceptions, such as oncology. These claims for specific services must be processed through nursing homes, so it is important for billers to know what the additional services are, and how to properly codify them.
