With the uncertainty of the world today and the news being anything but promising, it is hard to stay upbeat. The medical billing field is really a recesion proof industry but we’ve all been feeling the pressure from the world around us do to the economy. We’re looking forward to a New Year that brings Happiness and Prosperity to all!
Alice and I started this blog in July of 2008 but haven’t been posting. We were busy maintaining our other two bloges as well as many other projects, but now we are combining our efforts to make one awesome blog for medical billers to come to read about current changes in the field and comment about things that affect them.
Make sure you bookmark this blog and check back daily to read about what’s happening in the world of billing.
For example, our local BCBS used to allow a global allowance of $30 for all chiropractic visits. But as of 12/1/08 they have adopted the Medicare fee schedule and also allow an initial visit along with a manipulation charge for the first visit. This may not seem like much, but around here (central NY) it’s a big deal.
So, Enjoy the rest of the holidays and then return to work with a fresh new outlook! 🙂
