We’re pleased to announce this month’s winner of the Medical Billing Tip of the Month contest and the recipient of a $250 gift card:

Use Kareo’s Alert Button to Notify Staff About the Need for Additional Modifiers

The best billing tip (which in my case does involve Kareo) is the use of the alert button when entering the patient information.  I used it to inform the person posting the charges that an additional modifier was necessary for that particular visit.  This prevents the claim from being denied on the initial submission. I set it to display when entering encounters and posting payments. So when she was posting the charges, big bold letters highlighted in yellow told her to use the kx modifier. This saved us time and money.
