At last, an antidote to frustration and headaches for every medical coder, biller, educator, or administrator who has ever been treated as a second-class citizen by a physician in the practice!

Now get doctors and medical staff to respect and cooperate with you, so that they comply with coding rules swiftly and correctly... without giving you a hard time.

Watch the trailer

Get the information you need from MDs to make your billing correct, compliant, and productive -- and accelerate cash flow while enhancing patient care!

Dear Health Care Professional:

You know it and I know it: doctors have huge egos, are crushingly busy, and have little patience for paperwork.

Sometimes they even show outright contempt for what we do... treat us as annoying paper-pushers... and overall make life difficult for medical coders, billers, educators, and administrators.

Many doctors make no secret that coding, billing, entering their notes into an electronic record, following HIPAA privacy regulations, or converting to ICD-10 are at the bottom of their priority list, because—naturally—patient care is at the top. As a result, these physicians:

  • Over or under-code.
  • Provide coders and billers with incomplete documentation.
  • Do not answer queries promptly or with enough detail.
  • Don't know the coding rules.
  • Don't care about HIPAA, Meaningful Use, ICD-10, and the list goes on and on!

The results: it's tougher to do your job, keep your practice compliant, and get full reimbursement faster.

Get the doctors on your side!

It would be nice if we could ensure code compliance without our MDs, but unfortunately, part of our job is dependent upon getting the right information for each case from the physician.

Now, help is here. How to Get Physician Buy-In: A Medical Coder and Biller's Guide to Overcoming Physician Objections is a new video training program that gives you proven, field-tested techniques and strategies for securing complete cooperation from doctors and medical staff -- while maintaining a great working relationship.

There are two main advantages to be gained from knowing how to work with your physicians.

The first is that it offers significant benefits to the practice, which will please your doctors -- and gain their cooperation in getting important paperwork done in a timely manner to give you these valuable benefits:

  • A huge reduction in claims mistakes and denials.
  • Additional practice revenues.
  • Save time and money in coding and billing.
  • Elevate the quality of clinical data.
  • Improve patient care.
  • Avoid legal liability.

The bottom line: When you understand the secrets of winning compliance from your doctors, just watch how things will change. You'll cut down the number of inaccurate claims... get that report completed and signed... and put a stop to overcoding and a million other headaches that have been plaguing you for years!

But that's not all...

Win over your doctors and love your job again -- every day!

The second major advantage How to Get Physician Buy-In: A Medical Coder and Biller's Guide to Overcoming Physician Objections can bring to your practice is a greatly improved -- and more pleasant -- working relationships between physicians, physician educators, medical staff, billers, and coders.

As I noted earlier, doctors are busy people. On top of that, they are highly educated and trained, and the core of their job -- patient care -- is of primary importance. Most doctors are good people, but some as you know have big egos and can be difficult to deal with.

One reason is that MDs, like many people, have a disdain and lack of patience for paperwork. And they sometimes see us as clerks rather than the strategic partners in practice success we really are.

In How to Get Physician Buy-In, you learn how to get rid of tension between medical and administrative staff. You gain the collaboration of doctors so you get the information you need to do your job efficiently and correctly. And you also gain the respect of your doctors, because you learn how to show them you value them, their time, and their knowledge of medicine!

No longer will you have a knot in your stomach when it's time to implement ICD-10 or the 68,000 brand new medical codes that will come with it! You'll talk to your doctors... train your doctors... get documentation from your doctors... and query your doctors in a friendly colleague-to-colleague relationship -- a partnership that makes your work life more pleasant while getting the job done rapidly and accurately.

Why haven't more medical professionals and administrators been told these facts?

  • Doctors' offices spend an average of 20 hours or more weekly dealing with claim edits.
  • Nearly one in five medical claims processed by the largest commercial health insurers is inaccurate.
  • On May 28, 2014, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a report on its study finding that a majority of Medicare Part B claims for evaluation and management (E/M) services in 2010 were either improperly coded or insufficiently documented.
  • A hospital group that adapted its electronic health record (EHR) system to encourage its physicians to adhere to American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines reduced use of cardiac telemetry and cut related costs by 70%, all while care quality remained constant, according to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.
  • Approximately 30% of the cost in medical care is due to wastage (Institute of Medicine 2012)
  • 70% of the operating expenses are tied to the physician’s pen (Dr. Ted Norman, Big Thompson Medical Group)

P.S. It's not always the doc's fault. For many years, I have watched physicians struggle to comprehend imprecise, vague, long-winded, and in some cases downright insulting guidance and instructions coming from the physician educators, administrators, coders, and billers.

And, I have seen doctors in turn treat coders and billers disrespectfully and like second-class citizens, with anger and frustration, while failing to provide the documentation the practice needs to bill procedures correctly and compliantly.

The solution is our new video training program, How to Get Physician Buy-In: A Medical Coder and Biller's Guide to Overcoming Physician Objections. By showing your staff how to work more effectively with doctors while respecting the MD's time and expertise, the program helps you get the results you want while making the process stress-free and friendly.
