Gastroenterology is a medical specialty that focuses on the digestive system and related problems. This specialty focuses on illnesses of the gastrointestinal system, which includes the organs from the mouth to the stomach, as well as the organs along the alimentary canal. Gastroenterologists are doctors who specialize in this discipline.
Gastroenterologists must stay current on the numerous coding rules and payer-specific protocols in order to maintain a compliant and financially successful practice. Medical billing and coding in gastroenterology is difficult and necessitates a wide variety of expertise to secure optimal compensation. Billing for colorectal cancer screenings vs. colonoscopies, motility, and GI function investigations, documenting adequate levels of evaluation and management services, category III codes for GERD treatment, and using modifiers -51, -59, and -26 are just a few of the issues. Receiving payment for the services you provide necessitates meticulous attention to detail and constant communication with your whole staffing team, including all providers.
Additionally, invoicing for gastrointestinal and endoscopic services necessitates the capacity to properly track underpayments. Most billing software and in-house billing professionals are unable to meet this need. GI practices that do not successfully target underpayments are at risk of losing a lot of money.
