What Will Health Care Reform Do to Medical Billing?

With the addition of over 30 million new patients one thing is for sure, the medical billing profession is set to explode.

Now that the Health Care Reform bill has passed, it is time to stop debating it and start figuring out exactly how it is going to work and who will be affected by it. As a professional billing and coding company, MD Alliance Billing is obviously concerned about what the upcoming changes will mean for the medical billing and coding business. At the outset it would appear like the need for billing and coding professionals is going to increase because of the increased numbers of people who will be submitting claims to insurance as well as expanded Medicare and Medicaid coverage.

That's putting it mildly! Some companies are planning on doubling their capacity to cope.

According to Nitin Thakor, President and Chief Executive Officer, GeBBS Healthcare Solutions, “Obama's recent Healthcare reform plan will expand Insurance coverage to 32 million Americans who are currently uninsured. The entire population of the US is 300 million so this is a huge increase in the number of covered patients. This will significantly increase the amount of medical billing work that needs to be done and our new center will allow us to capitalize on this growth.

If you're planning to start your own medical billing service, it's also important to know some characteristics most physicians are looking for in a medical billing service. The most important is information security. Physicians should know how you are going to use and keep their patients personal information. The other thing is being accurate on most medical billing responsibilities from claims submission to management of medical insurance billing.

I've been doing medical insurance billing from home for a while. If reform gives more people that opportunity, that's a great thing
