MSN PARTNERS

DOTS ART

MSN began as a successful radiology group’s billing department and progressively evolved to become one of the leading radiology billing companies in the nation. We understand the operational culture and needs of the radiology practice and carefully assembled a team of experienced billing experts, supported by leading industry technology. We speak the language of radiology and are totally committed to the success of our clients.

MSN also invested in infrastructure, beginning with installation of a leading billing software in 2005, which encouraged a culture of continuous process improvement and the use of intelligent automation.  

GENERAL BUSINESS PARTNERS

Simple Admit

Simple Admit enhances patient care, improves efficiency, communication and the bottom line with intuitive, web-based patient engagement solutions. Our multifaceted technologies support patients, providers, billing organizations and facilities alike.  The solutions include online pre-op screening, a business office financial application, patient payment portal, phone registration, customer support, customized email and text messaging, reminder calls, and satisfaction surveys.

Simple Pay

As patients struggle with higher co-pays and more pay-for-service options, payment portals are becoming increasingly necessary for medical facilities, providers and billing organizations.  Simple Pay enables you and your patients to share important information about insurance coverage, billing, co-pays, and payment options through a secure, HIPAA-compliant process that couldn’t be easier to manage. With just a few clicks, you can automatically notify patients about their financial responsibilities before their day of service. Then, patients can make pre-visit payments with a credit card, customized payment plans, or financing with just a few clicks. This has proven to increase cash collections and reduce bad debt write-offs for medical facilities nationwide while putting patients in control of their financial obligations.

Vaughn and Associates

My law practice and coding practice consists of representing chronic pain physicians, anesthesiologists, and orthopedists in billing and coding compliance matters. My firm audits thousands of claims filed by our clients each year.  I maintain the required Continuing Education Units (“CEUs”) required by the American Academy of Professional Coders (of which I am a member) each year, which is approximately 18 hours per year. I teach coding and compliance each year at a compliance seminar I put on for my clients, typically in New Orleans, which I have been doing for approximately 20 years.  I stay current on pain management and anesthesia CPT codes and modifiers, Medicare LCDs, NCDs, and various articles published by Medicare relating to pain management and anesthesia compliance.  I subscribe to various coding resources, such as the AMA KnowledgeBase, the AMA’s CPT Assistant, the AMA’s annual CPT Changes, An Insider’s View, and Decision Health’s Anesthesia and Pain Coder’s Pink Sheet.  I publish my own compliance articles on various pain management and anesthesia issues throughout the year which are disseminated to my clients.  I defend physicians investigated by the FBI, OIG, DOJ, Medicare, BCBS, Medicaid, and other payers related to billing and coding issues.
