Physical therapy billing is a process that manages claims processing, payment and revenue generation.

It entails using technology to keep track of the claims process at every point of services, so that the healthcare provider can follow the process and address any issues, allowing a steady stream of revenue.

Elements in Physical Therapy Billing

Time management and efficiency play large elements in physical therapy, and a practitioner’s choice of an EMR can be largely centered on how their physical therapy billing is implemented. Some of the processes handled with physical therapy billing software include:

  • Streamlined scheduling that allows your office to verify patient’s coverage and benefits before the visit. This helps you in deciding whether to use the patient’s insurance coverage or ask for another source of payer.
  • Faster payments through the check in/out process via patient and medical insurers
  • Enhanced compliance with up to date standards so that your practice stays current with HIPAA rules, regulatory compliance, and implementation deadlines.  Updated information is automatically downloaded and is free.

Managing the revenue cycle will bring more visibility, make compliance simpler, and make the physical therapy billing team more productive.
