The global Medical Billing Outsourcing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 28.9 billion by 2030 from valued at US$ 11.2 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.66% during forecast period 2022 to 2030.

The U.S. medical billing outsourcing market was valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2021 and it is predicted to hit USD 12.3 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 11.3% from 2022 to 2030.

Growth Factors

A large amount of clinical code representation for diagnosis and treatment coupled with the presence of multiple payers renders medical billing an intricate part of any clinical practice, posing significant challenges. Currently, the healthcare system is witnessing a subsequent rise in the outsourcing of clinical billing services by hospitals and physicians due to obligatory implementation of complex ICD-11 coding systems, increasing healthcare costs, and a federal mandate to implement Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to maintain reimbursement levels.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the market. Though, the healthcare industry was trailing in embracing innovative and digital technologies to improve healthcare. The COVID-19 scenario has put an enormous burden on healthcare providers/organizations to become accustomed to the change. The recovery from the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic could take a long time.     

Furthermore, clinics/physician offices are gradually outsourcing their revenue management to cut unnecessary costs and prevent the burden of managing an administrative team to ensure effective handling of in-house billing functions. In addition, multispecialty healthcare groups are implementing consolidation requiring EHR integration and building large healthcare networks.

Component Insights

The outsourced segment dominated the market for medical billing outsourcing and held the largest revenue share of 52% in 2021. The segment is expected to register the highest CAGR from 2022 to 2030. In-house and outsourced are the major components of the market. It significantly reduces costs and proves a good fit for small and medium practices. Physician practices (acute care hospitals and clinics/physicians) are facing challenging times as reimbursements have declined and costs are rising, and the newly introduced regulations have made business more complex. It is estimated that approximately 20% of physicians' income will be lost due to health billing errors, and on average, healthcare providers or businesses spend 30 to 40% of their revenue on the billing process. This is boosting the segment’s growth.

Some companies are launching or adopting new cloud-based medical billing capabilities for superior security of patient data. For example, eClinicalWorks, a provider of medical billing services, launched a cloud-based revenue cycle management platform in 2018. In addition, outsourcing reduces labor costs by eliminating the need to hire an accounting team. Also, the company does not have to train or stay up to date, saving additional costs.

Service Insights

The front-end services segment dominated the market for medical billing outsourcing and accounted for a revenue share of 38% in 2021. Front-end services consist of processes, such as scheduling, preregistration, registration, eligibility, insurance verification, and pre-authorization. It comprises the main function of medical billing outsourcing.

Managing front-end services well is a key to reducing repetitive work and improving the patient experience with faster service. Therefore, the demand for outsourcing these services is strong. However, the segment is expected to face a decline in revenue growth owing to increased competition and saturation in the market. On the other side, the middle-end services segment is projected to witness lucrative growth over the coming years because of new entrants in the sector as well as the rising awareness of the middle-end service among practitioners.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment dominated the market for medical billing outsourcing and accounted for a revenue share of 47% in 2021. The segment is estimated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the high demand for financing services in hospitals. In addition, hospital consolidation adds to the complexity of the reimbursement and billing process. This is driving the demand for medical billing outsourcing services in the hospital sector.

The newly introduced International Classification of Diseases-10th revision (ICD-11) has made the medical billing business even more complex in nature. Owing to this, the demand for Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) has increased drastically. In addition, providers are choosing the companies offering the right combination of RCM with Electronic Medical Records (EMR) for improved patient outcomes.

The physician office segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. Rising expenditure on healthcare by small and midsized healthcare providers due to the growing emphasis on risk management and regulatory compliance and complex technology and staffing requirements is expected to drive the segment in the years to come.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of over 48% in 2021. The presence of numerous healthcare providers in the U.S. and the shift in their focus on end-to-end outsourcing firms for managing billing processes is augmenting the market in North America. Due to the increased awareness about the benefits offered by outsourcing firms, providers are relying on the companies to maximize operating margins and manage high-volume transactions.

In Asia Pacific, the market for medical billing outsourcing is anticipated to witness remarkable growth during the forecast period. Emerging countries such as Singapore, Australia, India, and China are the most profitable markets due to the expansion of patient pools and improved healthcare facilities. Increasing awareness about clinical billing software and the rising adoption of the latest technology is expected to boost the market. The increasing need to reduce the healthcare delivery cost is favoring the growth of the market in Europe. In Latin America and Middle East and Africa, the market for medical billing outsourcing is likely to propel owing to increasing investment in healthcare by the government and an increasing number of private hospitals.
