Dr. Emil Fadel is the owner of multiple eyecare practices located throughout central Texas.
The owner of multiple eyecare practices located in central Texas, Dr. Emil Fadel needed a way to stay on top of the billing cycle for all locations to ensure his revenue streams were flowing smoothly. However, recruiting and retaining experienced optometry billers to manage the revenue cycle was difficult, and the learning curve for training inexperienced employees was too high when managing multiple practices. “In one instance, we had two employees who were heavily involved in the billing process leave our office around the same time. After their departure, we uncovered tons of claims that were sitting there waiting to be reworked and resubmitted, resulting in lots of unpaid claims for my practice,” said Dr. Fadel.
Realizing that he needed to have more confidence in how his billing cycle was being handled, Dr. Fadel started looking at different options for his practice. “The biggest factor for me when looking at alternatives was that I wanted to choose a service that was really trying to help me make my business better, and not just a partner that was looking to perform another task and check off another box,” said Dr. Fadel. After being hesitant to outsource a major piece of his practice, Dr. Fadel found a revenue cycle management service that was able to start relieving the revenue pressures. Acting as an extension of Dr. Fadel’s optometric practice staff, within a few weeks, VisionWeb’s Insurance Revenue Cycle Management service was fully functional and managing Dr. Fadel’s insurance claims.
