The financial strength of your cardiology practice is directly related to timely billing and reimbursement. We have years of experience with cardiology billing services. Hiring a quality billing service is one of the most important decisions you will make regarding the business aspect of your practice.

Why not leave it to 5 Star to give you the financial peace of mind you deserve? Please visit our homepage for more information about our services, testimonials, and other relevant details about our cardiology billing services.
Medical billing in cardiology can be more challenging than in other specialties because cardiology medical procedures tend to be more complicated and complex. This means that medical coders working for cardiology facilities should specialize in cardiovascular terminology, services, and procedures. Not only should they have a high level of coding experience, but they should also be familiar with general billing procedures and processes, such as applying modifiers, coding components, and more.
Changes in billing and coding regulations in recent years have resulted in fee reductions for cardiologists. In fact, Medicare fees for cardiologists have decreased by about 2 percent each year, even though the average Medicare fee for other providers has increased by 1.1 percent. Because of these changes – and because revenue can also decrease due to billing errors and poor coding – it’s important that the billing and coding processes are handled by cardiology billing experts. At 5 Star Billing Services, we provide error-free, denial-free billing and coding services that result in maximum, on-time reimbursements for your practice.

Your Cardiology Billing Company
A cardiology billing company should increase your reimbursements. It should even bill more efficiently and effectively than your own practice. A cardiology billing company should allow you and your staff to focus on the practice of medicine. Whether you have your own practice or work in a hospital or multi-provider facility, a cardiology billing service can make your practice more profitable.
According to industry experts, a claim settlement rate between 20% and 35% is considered good and acceptable. At 5 Star, our account managers have an average of eight years of cardiology billing experience. Their knowledge, skills, and dedicated follow-up are why our adjustment rate is consistently lower – it’s as low as 12% for Medicare. At 5 Star, we achieve AR rates for our practices that are above the industry average. Simply put, you and your practice receive a higher average revenue per claim processed.
