Physicians’ Ally, Inc. has its origins in contract negotiation. Payor contracts, however, are only valuable if implemented correctly. We know it takes expertise to ensure contracts are implemented successfully and monitored in an ongoing basis for the practice.
We don’t want to compete with in-house or other third party billing companies. We are a “concierge” billing service for cases where our level of expertise is warranted for specialty clients or contracts that require our level of insight.
Physicians’ Ally, Inc. isn’t just a billing company. The synergy of our services (contract negotiation, credentialing, coding, billing, compliance) allows us to be much more than a billing service.
Why Physicians’ Ally, Inc. for Billing?
Do you know that you’re getting every penny allowed under your payor agreements? Physicians’ Ally, Inc. will know! We don’t post payments in a vacuum; our contracting expertise allows us to quickly identify and rectify payment problems. Our billing clients also have an edge in contract negotiations, since we have detailed knowledge of the practice.
- Should a biller be a certified coder? We believe all billers should be certified coders since codes define 100% of practice revenue. All of our billers are Certified Professional Coders (CPC) so we can capture all charges for every patient encounter. Physicians’ Ally, Inc. invests in our coders being current, and our billers attend specialty-specific coding conferences to ensure that we are experts in our billing clients’ specialties.
- Is regulatory compliance important to you? Physicians’ Ally, Inc.’s founder, Marcia Brauchler, MPH, FACMPE, speaks frequently at national conferences on regulatory compliance. She is a certified coding instructor and national Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) expert. She has authored the Compliance Policies & Procedures Manual for physician practices which is now co-sponsored/endorsed with Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). Because we are experts on federal regulations that apply to physician practices, we pass that knowledge on to our billing clients to assist their compliance efforts.
- Can you get the management reports you need to run your practice? Physicians’ Ally, Inc. performs billing services in whatever practice management system the client selects. This diversity of experience brings value to the clients, and results in our ability to pull custom reports across any system. In addition, as practice management consultants, we know the data you need and can assist you with the analysis necessary to make sure your revenue cycle is operating most effectively.
- Are you worried about HIPAA violations by your Business Associates? As national experts on HIPAA, we will work with you practice to limit your exposure as a Covered Entity under HIPAA. We have proven methods of exchanging protected health information securely and conveniently for your practice.
Our philosophy on billing services is that the physician practice gets more than they are paying for from a true partner in the revenue cycle. We raise the bar on billing service performance.
