Appeals

Providing services and not being paid is perhaps one of the most frustrating things providers face. But did you know that just because you were not paid on the initial determination does not necessarily mean you shouldn’t have been paid? Let Millennium Healthcare evaluate your denials and help you through the appeals process so you can be properly paid for the services you’ve performed and documented.

ICD-10 Assessment: Documentation Readiness Evaluation
Documentation will become critical with ICD-10

If your office is fully prepared for ICD-10, but clinical documentation has not improved, accurate coding and proper payment will not be possible. A behavioral change in documentation habits for most providers will be necessary—and now is the time to start preparing.

A clinical documentation ICD-10 assessment will:
  • Validate sufficient ICD-10 documentation
  • Identify ICD-10 clinical documentation deficiencies
  • Identify ICD-10 training specific to your needs
  • Avoid an increase in denied or unbillable claims
  • Prevent an interruption in revenue
Compliance Support Services
Compliance Office Support

Many multispecialty healthcare systems, academic faculty practices, and large medical groups have established central Compliance Offices, usually staffed with a small number of coders. They are responsible for compliance reviews of the many specialties and subspecialties represented by the practice's physicians. And, at times, these audits must be completed within a relatively short period of time.

Millennium Healthcare can offer support to your compliance office initiatives. We also have the breadth of coding expertise to be able to match the coder/auditor’s expertise to a specific specialty to assure maximum accuracy and compliance.

Our audit findings have the additional credibility of being from an outside independent firm with specialty-specific expertise. We can team up with your employed coding and compliance staff in completing these audit requests, and, if needed, work one-on-one or in group sessions with your provider to improve the quality of their medical record documentation. This totally changes the dynamics of the provider-compliance relationship from one of adversarial "policing" to one of teamwork to reduce legal risks and optimize revenues.
