What Is Urgent Care Billing?

Urgent care billing refers to the process of submitting and managing medical billing and reimbursement for services provided at an urgent care facility. When patients visit an urgent care center for immediate but non-life-threatening medical attention, such as treatment for minor injuries, illnesses, or diagnostic tests, the facility needs to accurately document and bill for those services.
Urgent care billing encompasses the complete process of claim submission, claim follow-up with the insurance companies, payment posting, claim adjustments, adherence to timely filing limits, and following up on A/R collections.

Our Process


Patient Registration and Check-in

Begin by registering patients upon arrival at the urgent care facility. Collect demographic information, insurance details, and any relevant medical history. Verify insurance coverage and eligibility for urgent care services.


Medical Coding

Assign appropriate medical codes to the services provided during the urgent care visit. This includes evaluation and management (E/M) codes for the level of care provided, as well as procedure codes for any diagnostic tests, treatments, or minor procedures performed.

Claim Submission: Compile the coded information into claim forms (such as CMS-1500 for professional services or UB-04 for facility services) and submit them to insurance payers electronically or by mail. Ensure accuracy and completeness of the claims to minimize the risk of denials and delays in reimbursement.


Follow-up and Revenue Cycle Management

Monitor the status of submitted claims, track payments and denials, and follow up with payers as needed to resolve any issues. Implement effective revenue cycle management practices to optimize collections, minimize claim denials, and ensure timely reimbursement for urgent care services provided. This may involve appealing denied claims, verifying patient insurance coverage, and managing patient billing inquiries and collections processes.
