Practice Solutions expands billing agency service for Ontario physicians



    OTTAWA, Sept. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - With the Practice Solutions(R) billing
agency, physicians can now have confidence that their billing needs will be
met in an accurate and timely manner. Practice Solutions is expanding its
insured billing agency, to offer a full-service agency, in Ontario, focusing
on OHIP billing.
    "With no fewer than 5,000 billing codes in use in today's OHIP Schedule
of Benefits, billing accuracy is a concern for Ontario physicians. During the
past 18 months, Practice Solutions has worked to expand its billing agency
service to include locum physicians, physicians within solo practices and
group practices and specialists," says Rob Thorpe, president, Practice
Solutions Software.
    With an experienced team of billing agents, Practice Solutions is now
capable of handling a wide variety of OHIP billing codes, including new
capitation codes.
    "We find that many physicians lose income within their reconciliation of
payments. This service will help alleviate the stress on physicians and their
staff, who are trying to keep up to date with the continuous changes to the
fee schedule," says Thorpe.
    Practice Solutions' experienced billing agents can also identify
potential billing code errors before they occur, and work with physicians and
OHIP to effectively handle all OHIP billing issues. "In addition, daily
reconciliations allows us to effectively monitor missed payments and errors on
behalf of physicians, freeing up staff time to focus on patients and ensure
the accuracy of all billing entries," says Thorpe.
