PRMS addresses current accounts receivable through the Revenue Cycle Management assessment and development process.
PRMS stands apart as a medical billing company.
Not only do we have the system solutions such as Lytec by McKesson, but our expert staff receives extensive training in Revenue Cycle Management so they are ready to teach your staff a complete improved cycle of billing components from intake to claims submission. Our process ensures that clean and complete claims will be transmitted to the payer. Before sending claims PRMS reviews all claims to make sure all patient/guarantor information is correct.
All claims will be reviewed down to the patient detail to determine the claim’s collectability.
Identify any potential for write-off.
Staff will grow in their understanding during this process as your practice revenue cycle policies and practice procedures are effectively updated.
Our staff has been involved in Revenue Cycle Management in the hospital setting and the physician office for both primary and specialty care, nurse practitioner practices in individual and in groups, and we have been called on more frequently to assess, identify, and correct claims submission that has resulted in delayed cash flows and an aging accounts receivable. Moreover, our staff members are part of various colleges and universities as faculty that teach ICD-10, Healthcare Reimbursement, Healthcare Delivery, Healthcare Ethics, Healthcare Finance, Healthcare Ethics, Healthcare Policy, and Electronic Health Records.
Our experience in the field sets PRMS apart from the other organizations, as we understand Revenue Cycle Management and ICD-10 and can help bring the processes and attention to your accounts receivable that, in the past, only the larger healthcare organizations have had the ability to utilize. This has allowed us to utilize a consulting team that is comprised of Certified Coding Specialists (CCS), Registered Health Information Administrators (RHIA), and other coding specialists such as physician coding specialists (CCS-P) that can handle any size problem from claims submission to submitting data to CMS or other payers.
