This page documents the process used by our secretaries to facilitate physician billing.
The process is touched on by some other pages, but we really need a core page that describes the process. It should contain links to the following where relevant, rather than duplicating info:
- Ambulatory Care Clinic
- Hepatology Admin Support
- Physician Billing Number
- Physician Billing Services
- Program Secretary - Gastroenterology
- Program Secretary - Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
- Program Secretary - Rheumatology
- Program Secretary 2 - Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
- Program Secretary II - Rheumatology
- Uninsured patients
The physicians are responsible for submitting all billings to their secretary on a regular basis (weekly). The secretary submits the various completed billings (eg. billings cards, in-patient/referral/consult sheets , prescription renewals, Ambulatory Care Cliniclists) to Physician Billing Services. Some physicians request a copy be kept for their own record prior to sending to Physician Billing Services.
Physicians can reference the Manitoba Health Physicians Manual for billable services: https://www.gov.mb.ca/health/manual/
Manitoba Health has a statutory requirement for submission of claims within 6 months of the date of service - in other words, any claims past 6 months will be denied and not payable. It is important that billings are submitted to Physician Billing Services on a regular basis.
