All full-time employees have had previous medical
billing experience and receive ongoing training and educational
opportunities to keep them abreast of developments in the area
of billing management and coding procedures.
There are registered nurses and physicians available

and degree of accuracy to insure maximum reimbursement. We are
licensed with the American Academy of Procedural Coders. Seminars
are conducted periodically and preliminary chart reviews can be
done to advise physicians on documentation requirements.
Compliance with Federal regulations (HCFA) governing
the Medicare program plays an important role in medical practices
and networks of practices. Our job is to inform and advise clients
of these regulations and aid in compliance to help avoid audits
or possible sanctions. The ultimate responsibility remains with
the physician, but we provide information that can assist in that
B.E.S.T. Systems, Inc., can provide full-service
billing and practice management functions as well as providing
a credentialling service to enroll physicians properly with third-party
payers and obtain provider numbers linking them to the practice
or network. This service requires a high degree of expertise and
a communication link with payers to be sure all paperwork is completed
timely and filed with all necessary documents.
Our services also extend to managerial functions
such as preparation of practice profiles, income management services,
and preparation of specialized reports for planning business strategies
such as expansion, or adding new clinical personnel. Our financial
services include preparation and maintaining payrolls and payables
for many of our clients.
The electronic submission
of claims to all major third-party payers is accomplished through
the work of our technical programming staff. Our B.E.S.T. Systems,
Inc. Medical Office System is all proprietary software. Our Unix
