What Is A Superbill Template?

A superbill is a comprehensive, itemized list of services sent from a healthcare provider to a payer, such as an insurance company, for reimbursement. The superbill is the primary source of information for a patient’s healthcare claim, and as such, it is crucial to include all necessary details in order to prevent the rejection of your patient’s insurance claim.

While many healthcare practices choose to use software to automate their superbill creation process, for those that can’t or choose not to automate this process, our  can help facilitate this process. The medical billing process can be difficult to wrap your head around, so before we continue, feel free to take a look at Carepatron’s Ultimate Guide to Patient Billing to refresh your memory on how this whole process works. But, if you’re feeling ready to start creating your own Superbills, then just read on!

How To Use This Template For Superbill

This template can be used to create an itemized list of the services your patient received. As this Superbill is the primary information source for your patient’s medical insurance claim, it’s very important that the information it contains is accurate and meets the information requirements of the insurance company or payer. To help prevent your client’s claim from being rejected, just follow these steps.

Step One. Provider, Patient, and Insurance Information

Fill out each of these sections with the relevant information, being sure to include the Provider NPI, Patient Date of Birth and address, and your patient’s insurance details.

Step Two. Procedures

The Procedure Information section is for the list of procedures your patient received from your practice. For the sorts of procedures included in this section, take a look at the most commonly used CPT codes. Ensure you add the relevant CPT code for the procedure, any modifier, as well as the units, fees, and payment information.

Step Three. Diagnoses

Similarly to procedures, diagnoses must also be accompanied by a code- however, these will require an ICD-10 code. It’s important to be clear on the difference between ICD and CPT codes, as errors in medical coding can result in rejected claims.

Step Four. Payment Totals

To make the total payment due crystal clear, we have included space for the Total Charges, Total Paid, and Total Due at the bottom of the Superbill template. You can calculate these figures using the Fees, Amount Paid, and Amound Due columns in the Procedure Information section.

Step Five. Sign the Superbill and Store a Copy Securely

The final step is for the provider to sign the Superbill, return a copy to either the patient or directly to the insurance company, and store a copy securely for record-keeping purposes.
