The medical reimbursement process includes descriptions of long procedures which could be terribly long and confusing. Thus a system of code numbers was devised representing each procedure and service a physician is likely to provide and another to represent each disease, disorder or injury. The physician’s computerized billing software sends information showing what was done and the insurance company’s software interprets the codes accurately. This speeds up the reimbursement process so doctors are paid faster and better. They want someone who can speak their language – medical terminology, anatomy & physiology and disease processes. BPTI is one such point that provides this service to clients in USA in terms of knowledge, high quality of skills and excellence of work habits.
