PRS Consultants have worked with thousands of physicians over the past 25 years.

One common theme we have identified is that physicians have not received a formal education regarding Coding and Billing. Many physicians who are very knowledgeable in this area still have gaps in their knowledge that can cost them tens of thousands even hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue.

This course is for all physicians who want to make sure they are collecting all the revenue for the services they are providing.

Many physicians already know a lot of this information, but very few know it all. Even physicians that think they know this information can benefit from this course.

You are wise to question who you can trust when it comes to learning coding and billing.

With all websites, consultants, associations, and companies offering coding and billing information, it is hard to figure out what is their real motivation and qualifications?

Our motivation is simple: we want to aggregate and disseminate up-to-the-minute, precise medical coding information and error-free claims processing instruction to maximize physician reimbursement dollars. This has been the same mission for over 25 years.

Earn More by Working Smarter not Harder

How would you like to save time with your documentation, and increase your take-home pay (some as much as 20%-30%), without seeing more patients or working any harder?

The path to working smarter and being paid fairly for all you do is to become a knowledgeable, active part of your billing process.

I’m sure you are, like most, confident that your billing process is effective and accurate. But, do you know for sure? If you have not spent the time to learn about documentation, coding and the billing process and are not involved, we can tell you, based on the hundreds of practices we have consulted with and the charts that we have audited, that you are leaving money on the table.

This course will benefit you if you are in private practice or are in a salaried position. It will fill in the gaps for the knowledgeable and provide additional detailed information for the beginner.

Protect Yourself

Urologists, salaried or in private practice, are liable for all claims submitted for the procedures they performed. Just because you are employed or an independent contractor does not protect you from the possibility of false claims. You may have heard or read of the horror stories of your physician colleagues that had to pay significant fines or are facing civil lawsuits, check out these articles:
