What is Billing?
Medical billing is the process of submitting medical claims to insurance companies and other payers for reimbursement. The medical biller is responsible for ensuring that all necessary information is included on the claim form, such as the patient’s diagnosis, the dates of service, and the provider’s name and NPI number. In some cases, the medical biller may also need to contact the patient or provider to obtain missing information. Once the claim is complete, it is submitted to the payer electronically or by mail.
