Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) for TeleMedicine

Revenue Cycle Management

TeleSpecialists is proud to be a leader in TeleStroke, Emergent TeleNeurology and additional TeleMedicine services. We understand the importance of having our specialized physicians available when you need them most via TeleMedicine. While our services allow your patients to receive the best care, the question of billing is a key consideration.

As an adjunct to our cutting-edge TeleMedicine services offered to your hospitals, TeleSpecialists now provides revenue cycle management (RCM) services. This solution shifts the billing responsibilities for our TeleMedicine services from your organization to the RCM professionals at TeleSpecialists, ensuring a streamlined billing process and reducing your overall TeleNeurology or TeleStroke program costs.

What Is TeleMedicine Revenue Cycle Management?

Traditionally, billing insurers for professional medical services is either handled by the physician or health care facility they serve. However, when a specialist is in a different geographical location away from patients, the revenue cycle management process suddenly becomes more complex. Laws governing interstate medicine practices can complicate billing and compliance. Our revenue cycle management solution provides our partners with the expertise required to manage the billing process associated with all TeleSpecialists services seamlessly and efficiently, saving you time and money.

We understand that revenue cycle management is the primary form of collecting revenue for most health care operations. As a result, you may prefer to control all processes associated with revenue generation, such as billing payors and patients. However, entrusting TeleSpecialists with RCM linked to our consultation fees can take the burden off your team so you can focus on patient care. It can also reduce your TeleMedicine program cost.

We offer:

  • Insurance eligibility verification
  • Electronic medical records (EMR) billing
  • Patient-provider encounter review
  • Claim submission
  • Electronic submission of claims to payors
  • Payer remittance and posting
  • Denial management
  • Patient billing
  • Reporting and analysis

The Benefits of Letting TeleSpecialists Process Your TeleMedicine Claims

Health care facilities and hospitals use the advanced services provided by TeleSpecialists to improve access to quality, specialty care. Rather than transferring patients to a bigger stroke center, having a specialist on call via TeleMedicine means patients can stay in your facility. Your physicians can oversee their care.

Our adjunct RCM solution helps your health care organization recoup some of the money associated with each consultation you use our TeleMedicine services for. The reimbursed amounts from payors are paid back to your hospital. RCM services from TeleSpecialists also reduce the complexity of TeleMedicine billing. When you entrust this process to our team, we take the stress off your health care organization and ensure you remain compliant with the latest standards.

If you have chosen one of our TeleMedicine programs, your organization will experience several benefits when you allow us to handle the RCM associated with our services.

RCM from TeleSpecialists:

  • Reduces the overall cost associated with your TeleNeurology or TeleStroke program
  • Ensures billing is as accurate as possible
  • Optimizes profits
  • Integrates seamlessly with hospital EMR
  • Manages physician documentation
  • Reduces the risk of manual process errors, payment challenges and audits
  • Ensures Medicare and Medicaid conditions of payment are met
  • Oversees all interstate regulatory considerations
