A major challenge facing radiologists today is receiving the optimal reimbursement for the services you are rendering while remaining compliant. This has become increasingly more difficult as the radiology industry continues to battle changes in complex legislative mandates, a change in coding sets, and the overall pressures of providing the highest level of patient care. MBMS’ Coding & Compliance Team ensures all MBMS clients are compliant with the latest regulations and are aware of all relevant industry changes that may affect their practice.
MBMS Uses Only Certified Coders
Our process helps us identify dictation trends, provides an opportunity to suggest improvements to our clients, which reduces inaccuracies, and allows us to deliver one of the highest clean claims rates in the industry.
MBMS clients also have access to MBMS’ Physicians Coding Portal; an ongoing communications loop from our certified coders to our radiologists, delivering instant, expert feedback on dictation improvement areas, including those affecting MIPS Quality scores. At MBMS, we treat interventional radiology procedures differently from diagnostic radiology procedures. Therefore, we have expert coders in each area including a physician leading the interventional coding team.
