WCH Service Bureau, a global service provider for practitioners in the healthcare industry, will honor its highly trained and professional billing staff as well as its clients at practices nationwide in honor of National Medical Billers Day celebrated on March 28 this year.
National Medical Billers Day was initiated by the AMBA (American Medical Biller's Association) beginning in 2008 in recognition of the importance and involvement of medical billers in the health care industry.
“This is a day to recognize and honor our highly trained and very professional medical billing staff,” explains CEO Aleksandr Romanychev. “This year is especially important given our current focus on helping clients upgrade to ICD-10 and significant industry changes it requires. Our health care providers are relying on us more than ever to help process claims that are timely, accurate and approved and we are consulting extensively on billing and reimbursement issues.”
Sponsor of the day, The American Medical Billing Association's (AMBA) goal is to provide the medical biller's association members with resources to enhance knowledge and skills to develop new ideas and technology collectively increase and realize true industry growth and leadership. It also offers the Certified Medical Reimbursement Specialists (CMRS), an exam which is a voluntary, national credential for the medical billing profession.
According to AMBA Director Cyndee Weston, “Medical Biller’s Day is a great opportunity for doctors and billing companies to thank their billers for the hard work they do every day. Billing correctly and getting claims paid is no easy task. Rules change frequently, while insurers apply strict payment guidelines that often aren’t communicated well – it’s an often thankless job, so encouragement and appreciation for a job well done is welcomed by AMBA members and billers nationwide.”
Virtually all of our billing staff has this and other accreditations and as a result we have one of the experienced and best trained firms in the industry,” explains Olga Khabinskay, WCH general manager. “That’s why our clients in physician and non-physician groups trust our opinion and services as well as receive the highest reimbursement level possible.”
