Billing mechanisms for vital services

Super Billing

For sustainability of vital services, there is a need to understand the billing mechanisms and opportunities to generate revenue. A super bill is an invoice used by health care providers with detailed Services provided to a patient. It provides a data source for health care claims to be submitted to payers such as insurances or funds. Super bills provide options for taking payments and for providing all information necessary. The purpose of using a super bill is to break down a patient’s bill to enable insurers to properly review, process, and cover claims. Unlike an invoice, a super bill has additional information such as diagnosis. For a bill to become a super bill, a client is supposed to provide additional elements to the normal basics such as certain specifications, codes, and details for the insurance provider to fully assess the charges.
