Establishing charges for your facility can be an intimidating task. To accurately and effectively establish a charge master an organization needs to have understanding of managed care contracts, coding, and the overall billing process. Out of date charge masters can lead to rejected claims that ultimately lead to delayed and/or lost reimbursement. Charge masters should be reviewed annually through payer analysis, costing data, geographical data, and workflow design. PMC also recommends periodic audits of the billing process to ensure all codes being captured are also being reflected correctly to the payers. PMC will turn your charge master into a solid instrument that will make your billing process successful and ensure that the organization receives proper reimbursement.
