Cardiology providers offer a wide range of services, which requires extensive medical billing expertise. For example, a recent Medicare Fee-For Service (FFS) improper payment report showed that cardiovascular stents had an improper payment rate of 10.7%, with a projected improper payment amount at approximately $352 million. This is one of the many services that cardiologists offer. If your medical billing staff is not up-to-date with the billing requirements for the various cardiology services, you may be at risk for claim denials, overpayment recoveries, or audits.
