Pre Bill Auditing

 

Pre-bill Auditing

After 23 years, MARSI is still one of the few companies that can offer pre-bill auditing.

Usually ... In one business day

The obvious advantages are:  improved accuracy, fewer denials, and less chart submission for re-billings, all without increasing A/R days.

Compliance & Auditing

Inpatient Compliance Review.

MARSI’s recommended program provides a pre-bill review of coding assigned by the facility for the most appropriate MS-DRG assignment.

The pre-bill process eliminates the need for re-submission of these claims, thereby reducing any “red flags” for review by CMS.

MARSI - Innovation for over 23 Years

“We do it the right way.”  MARSI’s slogan for a decade, and mission statement since inception 23 years ago.

From day one, we've looked for undercoding/under billing AND overcoding/overbilling…  a true compliance program. AND, each recommendation for more accurate coding has always been complete with specific education as to why we made the recommendation. MARSI specializes in RAC Audit Support, Medical Coding Consulting, Healthcare Revenue Cycle ManagementClinical Documentation Improvement, Peer Reviews, Compliance Auditing and more!MARSI Physician Queries

Writing queries to physicians for 23 years, we were writing queries before anyone knew about queries.

And Compliance.  We haven't called it “compliance” for 23 years; we called it “being defensible” until “compliance” became the buzz term.

MARSI realized 23 years ago that physician documentation was central to problems with coding, utilization, and quality.  We've been successfully educating physicians ever since.

A decade ago, we began a focus on Observation vs. Inpatient admission status. There seemed to be great confusion and a high number of medically unnecessary inpatient admissions.  It looked like trouble ahead for our clients and we aimed at fixing it. The RAC focus was no surprise.

Within the last 10 years, Clinical Documentation Improvement has become a nationwide concept.
