OBGYN Medical Billing Services

Filing insurance claims and receiving full reimbursement is a time-consuming process. Over the past few years, American healthcare has undergone numerous regulatory and procedural changes that have only made the process more difficult. For OBGYN’s, the medical billing process is especially troublesome, as there are numerous unique rules that must be followed carefully. The process truly demands an expert medical billing team. At The Valletta Group, we have the experience and resources to help.

Global to the Delivery

For many medical specialties, the billing process is generally the same. While there are always unique diagnoses/treatment codes, the procedural timeline is usually somewhat standard. For OBGYN’s, and more specifically Obstetricians, the process is different.

Rather than filing individual claims for each patient visit, pregnancy encounters and procedures are grouped into, what is essentially, a single claim. This comprehensive claim, which is often referred to as “Global”, begins after the confirmation of pregnancy visit and ends with postpartum care. The specific encounters that are included in Global vary greatly, depending on the insurance payer.

All encounters that fall under Global are filed together, and not until after delivery. That means OBGYN’s can go 9 (or really 10) months before receiving payment. Such a lengthy treatment period brings about much greater risk. Clearly, a denial on several months of work is much more costly than an ordinary denied claim. For that reason, OBGYN’s need a knowledgeable and experienced biller to protect their financial interests. They need a focused team that will ensure proper documentation from beginning to end, so they can worry less about their financial interests and more about caring for their patients.

Shifts in Cost and Payment

Since the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, OBGYN providers and their patients have seen some major changes. While more patients are now insured, many have seen significant increases in premiums and deductibles. In other words, more costs are being pushed onto patients from insurance payers.

For providers, the effect is an increased reliance on timely patient payments. In the past, patient collections represented a smaller piece of the pie. Nowadays, timely patient collections is basically essential to a stable revenue stream. But following up with patients can be both unpleasant and time-consuming.

At Valletta, we handle all patient bills. We send out statements, accept payments, and periodically remind overdue patients to pay. We also instruct patients to call us with any billing inquiries. We even offer online payment solutions with the option of automatically recurring installments, which have proven effective at increasing the percentage of timely payments.

The Valletta Group is committed to providing robust, effective billing services in a transparent manner. We provide clear data and make ourselves available to our clinicians. We give our clients the tools to make informed decisions, so they can grow their practices without worry.

Don’t be fooled by bargain-priced billing companies!

Some billing companies attempt to attract clients through below-market prices. These bargain billers want you to think that their low prices will save you money. However, the truth is their prices are low because their product is inferior. They offer insufficient services, have minimal experience, and make lots of errors. As a result, their clients miss out on a significant amount of revenue.

The Valletta Group is a full-service, experienced billing company with a mean collection rate of 97%. This level of service and accuracy is industry-leading. More importantly, it allows providers to maximize revenue. Even when factoring in respective price differences, Valletta’s clients take home significantly more than the clients of bargain billers.

When choosing a medical billing company, the smart investment is not in low prices, but in quality services. The smart choice is The Valletta Group.
