We at Express Medical Billing are eager for all insurance companies to provide a separate reimbursement for OBS so that the cost of maintaining The Joint Commission/AAAASF accreditation is reasonably and universally compensated.
Presently, many OBS facilities are using a portion of the professional reimbursements collected to maintain their accreditation status while others have had no other alternative but to discontinue their OBS practice and take their patients to local hospitals and Ambulatory Surgery Centers because they can no longer afford the added expense.
As a corporate sponsor, advocate, and member of NYOBS, we at Express Medical Billing feel it is our duty to maintain complete awareness of all insurance policy updates and provisions pertaining to OBS compensation. Due to our expertise in this area of billing, we are successful in obtaining separate reimbursement from many PPO insurance policies which are listed in detail on the organization website, nyobs.org. If you are not a member of NYOBS, please join now via their website as it is critical that all OBS facilities in New York state are active members.
