RADIOLOGY PRACTICE BILLING PERFORMANCE – UNDERSTANDING NET COLLECTION PERCENTAGE

In October 2017, we began our review of Measuring Practice Billing Performance, and explained that there is no “silver bullet”, or single measure, that assesses overall performance, but rather a series of key measures to understand and monitor monthly. These measures include, but are not limited to: Accounts Receivable (A/R) balance, A/R Days Outstanding, Net Collection Percentage, and % of A/R greater than 120 days old. In this issue, we will review the calculation and meaning of Net Collection Percentage.

2017 NEW RADIOLOGY CODES

Changes to CPT codes take place every year, new codes are added, some are revised and some are deleted. 2017 is no different. Because there has to be a match between your documentation and the code(s) assigned, it is imperative to review the new codes along with the code descriptions. The purpose of this newsletter is to point out what’s new along with the 2017 professional Ohio Medicare allowable for a facility setting (hospital). Take a moment to review each of the codes and consider how these new codes could possibly impact your practice.
