Lytec medical billing software is a leading medical billing program that handles billing, scheduling, accounts receivable, and so on. This is comprehensive practice management software that is capable of handling a wide range of functions and practice types.
One of the package’s salient features is its easily customizable billing grid. Different insurance companies may have different stipulations and requirements regarding submission of claims. The software a medical practice uses needs to reflect this, and Lytec is especially useful on this level. It allows the user to easily change the payor characteristics and bills it generates to suit and almost endless variety of claim types and situations. Not only do carriers sometimes change their submission requirements, but changes in health care legislation at the state or federal level also affect the billing process. Lytec handles all this with flexibility, efficiency, and user friendly accessibility.
Another area where Lytec medical billing software exhibits this ease of use and flexibility is in terms of scheduling. The program’s appointment scheduler allows the user to pinpoint times and dates in a quick and seamless way. This eliminates wasted time in the office trying to find the right pages and columns just so an appointment can be typed in.
The revenue management feature of the software has built in error checking capabilities. Many claims are rejected by insurance companies due to filing errors (such as, for instance, failure to comply with recently instituted ANSI standards for coding norms or similar technical, syntactical, or coding issues) so a practice that can identify them before hand is in a much better position with regard to receiving payment in a timely manner.
Insurance carriers also reject claims on the basis of ineligibility. The Lytec revenue management feature takes this into consideration as well, allowing the user to check the insurance eligibility of medical services before actually submitting the claim. It also synthesizes 835 electronic remittance advice – a system of advice and explanations to facilitate claims filing and payment to providers – into an easy to use intuitive page, allowing the user to review the bill in the light of this advice.
