Medical billing is, without doubt, a demanding process. The process is even harder for new entrants in the practice of medicine, neither is it any easier for established medical practices. It possible for someone to assume that it is only harder for independent practitioners and therefore, much easier for medical institutions.
The true position is that the medical billing sector can sometimes be extremely challenging for all sector players as the claims to be made increase, yet billing is as important as other healthcare sectors. It may probably be more important than other industries as you always need the revenue to trickle in to support other sectors.
Medical coding is part of the processes, and we have seen several claims get rejected because they were not properly coded.
