Pulmonology Billing with Sudaco

Breathe Easier Knowing Your Collections are Better Managed.

In recent years, insurance carriers from Medicare to Blue Cross Blue Shield to United Healthcare have implemented dozens of medical policies aimed at limiting payments for pulmonology services. Not only are there the usual detailed payable diagnosis lists per procedure, but requirements around prior conservative treatment, criteria for split night sleep studies and hidden variations in the carrier policies all work together to make it more difficult to get your claims paid. Sudaco has not only successfully navigated these payor policies, we have incorporated their specific requirements into our ChargeChecker proprietary claim scrubber. Benefitting from Sudaco’s years of experience in pulmonology billing, your claims will be flagged and fixed before they reach the clearinghouse resulting in fewer denials and faster payments!
