Oncology is a complex and long-drawn process with comprehensive treatment plans to prevent and cure cancer. As a result, the Oncology Billing process requires detailed medical treatment documentation and timely follow-up with insurance companies to get paid. Accurate medical coding and billing at the end of each treatment phase ensure that the Oncology practice receives adequate reimbursements.
In addition to its procedural complexity, Oncology billing faces frequent changes in codes and compliance policies. Often, payers are unaware of the latest technology leading to a significant reduction in reimbursements received by the practice due to inadequate understanding of the procedure and lack of reimbursement standards. Oncology is also a multidisciplinary field requiring surgeries performed by specialists from other medical disciplines and post-operative trauma and mental health specialists to help patients recover in health and mind. These complexities require coders and billers who need to ensure excellent accuracy while billing & coding.
