Gastroenterology Billing Services & Practice Management
Now more than ever, it has become crucial to have a professional medical billing company specializing in gastroenterology medical billing and coding that can navigate through the complexities of the gastroenterology coding requirements.
As with all medical practices, the financial stability of your Gastroenterology Practice is directly related to timely and accurate billing in order to receive the maximum allowable reimbursement for services performed. However, with over 50 changes to CPT coding in 2015 for gastroenterology, including changes to lower GI endoscopy codes, new G codes and modifiers for CMS (Medicare and Medicaid) and revisions to the definition of colonoscopy, accurate medical billing and coding for gastroenterology has become a challenge for Gastroenterologists’ practices.

Gastroenterology Contract Negotiation
Payer contract negotiations, evaluation and renegotiations is very critical to every Gastroenterology practice, yet many practices only set up their managed contracts one time and allow them to automatically renew without any negotiations. Most Gastroenterology practitioners lose additional revenue of 10-30 percent because they do not have the time or the required expertise to renegotiate contracts with insurance payers.
Global Health Management Services are experts in managed care contract negotiations. We perform a contract analysis of your Gastroenterology managed care negotiation process, evaluating each contract and devising a contract negotiation and renewal strategy for your Gastroenterology practice by using leverage points to maximize normal contract terms, resulting in significant revenue increases for our Gastroenterology clients.

“Until 2009, my practice had in-house billing by a non-certified coder. Plans were underway to have a new medical office and ambulatory surgery center constructed. I hired a consultant for the practice and I soon realized that the office was not only coding improperly, but under-billing as well. The consultant recommended Global Health Management Services. I contacted them and they made a 2 1/2 hour drive down to meet with me. I was extremely impressed with their knowledge, professionalism, and willingness to help improve the revenue for my practice. They were hired and within several months, I saw a complete turnaround in our total revenue. Global Health also helped with the tedious task of negotiating contracts with health insurers for my new ASC. They are all experts in their field and their goal is to make sure you succeed in receiving the maximum reimbursements. Global Health is family owned and run, and they treat you as part of their family. I have nothing but high regards for them and highly recommend Global Health for any medical practice.”
