What You Should Know About Interventional Radiology Coding

Why Are Credit Balances Important In Radiology Billing?

Posted on November 9, 2017 in General
I am willing to wager than no radiology billing company was ever chosen by a group or imaging center because of the way they worked credit balances and issued refunds.

These occur when payments and adjustments exceed the actual posted charges.   ...Read More

Six Ways Radiologists Screw Up Their Billing

Posted on September 15, 2017 in General
Chase the lowest fee If you know me, you know this is my pet peeve. Radiologist often obsess about a half of a point in billing cost and don’t even notice a five point drop in collections. One point in collections is the same as one point in fee. There are billing companies out there who make it their practice to be the low-cost provider. They also happen to be ...Read More

In 2002, Donald Rumsfeld famously said: As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don’t know we don’t know.
