Medical billing is the process of submitting and following up on claims with health insurance companies in order to receive payment for services rendered by healthcare providers. The billing process involves creating invoices or bills for patients, submitting claims to insurance companies, and ensuring that payments are received and posted correctly.
Medical billing is a complex and highly regulated process that requires a deep understanding of medical terminology, coding systems, and insurance policies. Medical billers and coders must be trained to accurately translate medical procedures and diagnoses into codes that can be processed by insurance companies.
