Physical Therapy Billing Services

Running a successful physical therapy department should always be about keeping patients at the center of the care experience. Whether recovering from surgery or a serious injury, therapists play a key role in helping patients regain function and achieve long-term wellness. Providing this much-needed piece of care on an inpatient basis can help your facility improve overall patient satisfaction and reduce costly readmissions. 

As a hospital leader, you probably also understand the importance of operational efficiency in your therapy department. To make sure that the right level of patient care is delivered, billing and revenue must be managed successfully. However, billing practices and regulations are constantly changing in the modern health care environment. This is particularly true for physical therapy billing services, which has its own unique needs and properties. To help ensure correct reimbursement, many facilities enlist the support of a dedicated contract services organization with specialized knowledge in physical therapy billing.
