Now, when can I set aside an hour to wrangle with that collection agency? While having my varicose veins treated, I chatted with my doctor about health insurance. He said he was against the Affordable Care Act, but as we talked he admitted that dealing with Medicare was so much easier than working with insurance companies.

He said that, while Medicare pays less, at least they pay quickly. Insurance companies, on the other hand, ask for more information, reject claims, and generally seem to find ways to delay payments. Has anyone calculated the added cost to health care from doctors having more support staff than nurses in their office? The private insurance system we have is so inefficient and wasteful — and this does not include profits. In a day of universal bar codes and scanners there is no reason to manually code any equipment or disposable supplies.

A portable scanner could have tracked that splint as easily as a can of tuna, ordered a replacement for inventory purposes and noted the account to which it was billed. What am I missing? Is it because they pay electronically? Medicare has well-established rules based on code combinations that appear on the claim.

They will automatically reject or deny what is inappropriate based on these rules. SpeedECoder is software that contains all these rules at http: Health plans and providers must share their responsibility of making the innovations and investments needed to improve efficiency in our health care system. Naomi- You are being too generous in calling this a billing error — it was likely intentional overbilling.

In my personal experience, most medical bills are padded — a 5-minute visit billed as a minute visit, a cursory ER examination billed as a level 4, a simple neeedle aspiration billed as incision or drainage, excision of a 3 mm lesion billed as excision of a 20 mm lesion. All of these bills passed insurance company screening, These were not clerical errors — They were adjusted by the treating physicians only when I told them that I was a physician who directly witnessed the procedure and would file a complaint to the state medical board about fraudulent billing.

This will take us from some 14, codes currently to 69, In the meantime, both providers and insurers will have to spend tens of millions of dollars to reprogram their computers to get ready for the changeover. A PA who saw me in the ER Fast track is trying to bill me for a pulse reading he did not do when I was seen for a back injury related to my part time hospice job.

New to me too even though I once worked in an orthopedic ward. But having our own lingo is one of the ways we doctors control the closed shop called Healthcare. That as some of the commentators here have noticed is in the Art of Billing. Needless to say the publication of the ICD will be helpful at least to doctors in this regard. I had a similar experience. My son broke his foot and the ER put him in a cast up to his upper thigh. When I got him to our family orthopedist, he took the cast off and said NO cast was necessary, just that my son should stay off the foot and wrap it if it made it more comfortable.

Besides insurance paying for unnecessary expense, it put my son through a lot of unnecessary discomfort. Nate Ogden — Unfortunately, the rate of fraud in private insurance is largely unknown because, unlike Medicare and Medicaid which are mandated to investigate and pursue and publicize fraud, private insurers largely ignore fraud as an issue, since the cost of pursuing it is higher than the cost of accepting it.

One of the few studies ever done on private insurance fraud, an investigation by newspapers in New Jersey, showed a higher rate of fraud in private insurance than in Medicare. The main form of waste in private insurance, however, is not fraud, money paid for profits, for advertising and underwriting, for sales, or for large salaries to top employees, but the money lost to the inability of private insurance to deal effectively with negotiations with providers.

This year, the growth of cost for private insurance was almost twice that of Medicare. Private insurers are by no means eager to continue paying this differential, but because of the power of providers in many areas of the country they are largely powerless to stop it. Medicare, on the other hand, can and does control costs and eliminate payment for many — but by no means all — wasteful procedures and tests.

If the ACA is allowed to take effect, Medicare will be even more effective at that. Hopefully, private insurers will be able to hitch a ride on Medicare at that point — as they often do now — and reduce payments as well. The insurance exchanges, if allowed to take effect, will also give private insurers the chance to show customers exactly what they are paying for the costs exacted by powerful provider groups and make the choice of whether they want that cost or prefer to buy insurance that may give them fewer choices of providers but will cost much less.

Not sure what you based this comment on but it is far from the truth. Because the title of the bill says so or what is this based on? They expect to do it with cost-effective networks, better care coordination and hospital discharge planning and, of course, a lot less fraud than Medicare experiences among other things. At the same time, as the states deal with their own budget issues, they are moving more and more Medicaid beneficiaries into managed care plans because they save money.

To counteract this, tiered network, narrow network and limited network insurance products are finally starting to gain traction with employers.
