Health Care Billing for University Athletics

Currently there are a number of college and university athletics programs investigating billing for medically necessary care provided in their sports medicine, athletic training facilities. This is a unique setting in the billing for medical and physical medicine services because it is adding to the complexities of medical billing, the complexity of navigating through a University’s policies and culture. Questions come up like:

  • Do we follow HIPPA or FERPA regulations?
  • Under what provider number do we bill?
  • Where does the revenue flow once collected?
  • Who negotiates contracts with insurance carriers?
  • What system do we use to track care, and bill insurance with?
  • What guidelines do we use to bill student athletes insurance – when do we bill, for what injury?
  • Is the return on investment high enough to justify the resources and change in culture this will cause?

TCGA’s Principle and Partners have experience in this unique environment and in this type of healthcare billing. This experience provides for professional resources and problem solving strengths to work with colleges and universities to answer the above questions, and determine the return on investment and financial feasibility. If the answers meet administration goals and expectations, then TCGA can assist in the creation of a process for the university to walk through the complexities of medical coding/billing, and if desired, assist in implementation through project management. TCGA is not in business to sell a proprietary process, methodology or particular system and resources to find the right solution for your organization.
