Who We Are

The primary mission of MedBooks, and its affiliate company, Medical Fee Analytics, is to assist its physician and attorney clients in reaching positive financial outcomes though targeted coding and realistic billing techniques. Our expertise in the coding and billing area is unmatched and our credentials, unrivaled. We have served over 35,000 clients and continue to make strides towards reducing coding errors, negotiating fees and seeking reimbursement for millions of dollars left on the table.

We have provided testimony to a great number of plaintiffs and defendants regarding usual, customary and reasonable fees. Our proprietary software produces the RUCR Report that compares the actual charges made by any medical provider to the usual, customary and reasonable values for individual HCPCS/CPT codes they have used. This report provides solid benchmarks from which to settle any accident or injury claim. 

Each RUCR Report is prepared with the specific geo-zip code in mind and takes into account coding rules based on the American Medical Association’s CPT book and Medicare policies. Some of these rules (e.g., multiple procedure surgery rule, timed coding rules) may reduce the values of services while still others (e.g., units) may increase the value of services.  In all cases, we strive to present the facts such that  a fair and equitable settlement can be reached.

 

 

Our US based team of professionals is educated, seasoned, certified and skilled in the arts of medical coding, billing, pricing and medical transcription.  We know the coding and billing rules, and how to employ them.Whether you are a doctor who seeks to improve your bottom line and have the security of knowing you'll keep your cash, or an attorney who needs to understand how medical services are billed and priced, or even a third party payer (e.g. trucking company or automobile insurance carrier)  we can help.

Our approach to your bottom line is simple. We analyze the medical and billing records from both a coding and billing standpoint, price the services based on the usual, customary and reasonable values for the given zip codes, and compare those rates and coding techniques to what each client has provided to us. Finally, we report our findings in a format that includes the details needed to answer questions about the real value of the case (as opposed to what people may “want” the value to be).

Most often, our physician clients (upon seeing our conclusions), ask that we re-negotiate their contracts with the various third-party payers who insure their patients. They see that their “one size fits all” pricing methodologies (often based on a percentage of Medicare) and/or their lack of knowledge about what they could have been paid to be a far cry from the dollars they have received. In many instances, they learn for the first time why they have been shortchanged.  Often we are able to recoup money for them and in most instances, we stop the bleeding.Our attorney clients see that we provide sound logic to our reports using documented coding rule sets thereby helping them achieve fair settlements and win cases in less time and with less effort.  Our attorneys move on to other cases and strengthen the relationships they have with their adjusters who shell out less than before.

Our insurance and trucking customers are able to know (based on solid data) how much their cases are actually worth, whether they can negotiate these cases with in-house counsel or even if the case load should be farmed out to their outside legal teams.  Based on the RUCR Report, they are often able to reach settlements outside of the courtroom and reduce the costs overall for all parties.Because our certified team members specialize in these areas of medical coding and billing we have been able to recoup millions of dollars for our clients that had been otherwise left on the table and support fair and reasonable adjustments of the dollars charged for medical services.

Founding MedBooks, Inc.

When Trish was recruited to the American Medical Association in Chicago, she became the editor of the CPT book. Trish answered over 8,000 written inquiries about CPT in its first year of implementation.

Realizing that there was little to no training on CPT codes, she left the AMA and founded MedBooks, Inc. Our business provides super-bill and fee analysis and review for physicians.

Founding Physician Fee Analytics and Medical Fee Analytics

In 2016, Trish co-founded Physician Fee Analytics and Medical Fee Analytics. Physician Fee Analytics (PFA) and Medical Fee Analytics (MFA) are businesses that help optimize medical revenues by calculating the usual, customary, and reasonable charges for the CPT codes employed in a specific geographical region.

PFA and MFA were established to bring specific medical industry experience, knowledge, education, and credentials to analyzing fees and business information for physicians, physician groups, chiropractors, surgeons and ophthalmologists. Using proprietary software via the RUCR Report and years of experience, PFA and MFA can be the missing puzzle piece for our clients. The teams at both companies help clients understand where they stand in relation to the usual, customary, and reasonable charges for their services in their respective geo zip codes.

Authorial Works

As an author, Trish has more than 50 copyrights. One of her books can even be found in more than 900 colleges and universities.
