The Client:

Large-sized practice in Florida that deals with Retina.

The Challenges:

  • 90+ AR was around 63%
  • Claim denial percentage was 29%
  • Liquidation of claim rate was 16%
  • Manual payment posting was 25%

Plutus Health Plan

Highly experienced medical billers detected the issues hindering the client's revenue and systematically approached their ophthalmology billing needs.

Issues Detected

  • Not leveraging its NextGen Billing Software to its full potential.
  • Didn't have strategies to manage AR.
  • Used error-prone manual payment posting methods.
  • Lagged ability to negotiate successfully with Medicare.
  • Unable to stay updated with state-specific Medicaid policies.  

After identifying the gaps in the billing process, Plutus Health's ophthalmology billing experts worked closely with the client to resolve billing errors.  

Plutus Health's certified coding professionals (AAPC, AHIMA) are trained in coding software such as EncoderPro, Flashcode, CodeLink, etc. We applied standard CPT, HCPCS procedure and supply codes, and ICD-CM diagnosis coding as per CMS guidelines to reduce coding errors.
