Helping Physician Groups to Stay Profitable

How Medical Billers Increase Physician Profitability with Transparent RCM Services

Medical Billing: Our medical billers ensure that the documentation for individual psychotherapy is thorough and accurate. This includes confirming the patient’s capacity to participate and benefit from therapy, specifying the estimated duration in terms of the number of sessions, and documenting that the treatment is expected to improve the patient’s health status or function. Key details like target symptoms, therapy goals, responses, and monitoring methods are meticulously recorded.

For group psychotherapy, our billers ensure that records reflect the application of cognitive skills, behavior modification, supportive interactions, and reality discussions aimed at therapeutic change. Documentation includes the participant’s involvement and an evaluation of the session’s benefits or lack thereof.
