What are the benefits of doing my own Anaesthetic billing?
One of the many questions Anaesthetists will face will be to decide whether to outsource their Anaesthetic billing to an anaesthetic billing service or spend the time after work and do it themselves. What are the benefits of having a professional organisation such as Fast Tracking doing your billing on your behalf?
Lets first look at the scenario of you personally doing your anaesthetic billing yourself. In this particular scenario, you have two main options. The first option is on your days off or after work you can tackle your billing yourself. Alternatively, you could look at recruiting a receptionist to perform the anaesthetic billings on your behalf.
Completing your own Anaesthetic Billing Service
At first, the idea of doing your own Anaesthetic Billing yourself may seem very compelling due to its cost-saving strategy, however, it does have its drawbacks. Performing your own anaesthetic billing will require considerable time to be set aside each week as well as an investment in the anaesthetic billing software and hardware. This time consumed in this area is time sacrificed in other areas of your life.
After submitting the anaesthetic billing yourself, be prepared to dedicate time after working day to sort through sent invoices. Checking which invoices have been successful or rejected by Health funds and Medicare can be time-consuming and require follow-up communication with the relevant parties. At first, this may be possible, but as your Anaesthetic private practice grows, the time required to process your anaesthetic billing will become greater.
The second option is the provision of a receptionist to perform the anaesthetic billing on your behalf. Having a receptionist provides more control on your own time and you will have more influence in providing the anaesthetic billing to your level of desire. Although having your own personal receptionist will certainly save you time, it can be a more costly exercise than having a professional anaesthetic billing company like 'Fast Tracking' perform your billings due to all the hidden costs of having your own receptionist.
The first consideration when hiring your own receptionist is that anaesthetic billing is a very specialised field and it is unlikely that a receptionist will have a background in Anaesthetic billing coding. Training your staff up may take some time, and that is provided you have the resources and time to train your own staff member.
Other hidden costs that must be factored in are rental costs for receptionist office, superannuation, long service leave and sick leave. These are multiple factors many people do not consider when comparing outsourcing their Anaesthetic Billings to an in-house receptionist.
