Physician Billing Services

Physician Billing Services is comprised of departmental billing teams established to ensure that the revenue cycle for each clinical practice is functioning at the optimal level to achieve financial success. Billing management staff and their financial analyst are accountable to report results to physicians and administrative/managerial staff in the practice. A review of financial indicators and variances is performed routinely to seek opportunities for improvement.

Staff members in the teams have responsibilities required to support the daily operations within the revenue cycle. The range of these responsibilities vary based on the practice area and may include obtaining referrals and authorizations, coding, charge entry, appeals for denied claims or resolution for patient inquiries in coordination with many other VMG Departments.
