Welcome! At Dr. Sloan-Kelly Consulting, formerly Kelly, Sloan, and Associates, we take pride in helping doctors, and facilities, earn the money they well deserve. Because DSK Consulting is owned and operated by a physician, our focus is on you and developing your practice and/or facility -- not the dollar amount, and what it could earn us.
In today’s market, reimbursement rates are decreasing at a steady rate and doctors, hospitals, and their support staff, must find ways to ensure the fiscal health of their practices and facilities. Reimbursements are not only directly linked to what is coded and billed, but also what is documented in the medical record and the way payer contracts are negotiated. Any breakdown, or laxity, in a physician’s coding, billing, documentation, compliance or the running of the practice will lead to a decrease in reimbursement and not only place the practice, or facility, at a fiscal risk, but also become a compliance liability -- prompting federal and private payers to initiate audits that can lead to several thousands of dollars in repayment.
Over the past 12 years since I started my company I have found many doctors feel although they have documented in a patient's chart to the highest level of specificity, they should still undercode the chart to avoid possible overbilling and federal audits. Thereby leaving money on the table. Conversely, others feel comfortable with coding to the highest level while failing to document to that level. Thus increasing their risk of an audit that often lead to negative consequences mainly in the form of large repayments to payers. Both of these scenarios are detrimental to your practice and facility. I have designed my company to help you through the coding and billing maze with ease.
