24/7 Medical Billing Services help Physicians improve their practice’s revenue and efficiency by 30% by reducing their operational cost up to 40%. and streamline their medical billing process to operate effortlessly.
Medical billing for mental health services is more complicated than in other areas of healthcare due to the types of services, time, scope, and restraints placed on mental health treatments. For instance, if a patient visits a doctor for a routine check-up, they will almost certainly go through a standard series of tests and exams. This typically includes measuring the patient’s height and weight, taking their blood pressure, listening to their heart, and possibly drawing blood. These exams, for the most part, are standardized across all patients, take the same amount of time,…
