One of the best parts of qualifying as a medical biller and coder is the opportunity to work for yourself as a freelancer. Almost 22% of all medical billers and coders working in the U.S. work on a freelance basis, and while freelance work isn’t for everyone, for some, the chance to set their own hours and work in the comfort of their own home is ideal.
The best part about doing freelance work is getting paid, but in order to do that, you need to be able to invoice for your work in a timely and accurate fashion. Getting your invoice wrong can mean a significant delay in you getting paid. In this article, we will be looking at how to invoice for your medical billing and coding work in the correct manner.
Simply put, your invoice is a bill for the work that you have done or a realization of the quote that you gave to your customer. When a client contacts you to complete work for them, they normally ask you for a quote. Your invoice should reflect that quote while adding in any additional work you needed to do in order to complete your client’s request.
One of the few downsides of working on a freelance basis is that sometimes you’ll need to chase an invoice in order to get paid. Although this happens very rarely, sometimes invoices do get lost in payment systems, put on the back burner because of other business concerns, or simply forgotten about.
The best way to pursue an unpaid invoice is politely but persistently. There’s not much point in getting angry and making threats, just remain calm and continue to make contact until the invoice is paid.
Taken together, medical coding and billing form a link between patients, healthcare providers, and insurance companies. As a medical biller or coder, you’ll need to be accurate, detail oriented and well organized as you’ll be a vital part of any healthcare provider’s staff.
