No. In some cases, clients choose to begin using a billing service for the most difficult claims. Then, once they feel comfortable with our services, they gradually transfer billing functions. If you desire, we can take on all aspects of your billing office without any delay or trial period.

  • File clean claims in a timely manner resulting in fewer rejections
  • Compliance with all HIPAA Regulations so you have the confidence that we will never release any confidential information to anyone without the patient’s consent
  • Allow your staff to concentrate on the most important issue: “PATIENT CARE”

Your reimbursements are sent directly to your current mailing address, lock-box, or electronically to your bank account.

A large part of our job is to stay on top of changes made by insurance carriers. With all the changes to filing procedures by Medicare and other commercial carriers, filing a claim has become a gamble to see whether or not it will be paid.

By hiring a billing specialist, you no longer have the worries associated with those changes. We follow up on every claim until it is paid and make the necessary changes for future filing.

In most cases, claims will be filed electronically. There are still some carriers that require paper forms. If you currently have to file pre-authorization paperwork, we can assist you with that as well.

Currently, we use Centricity. We are flexible to use any desired software platform.

Generally, a billing agency can perform your billing for a fraction of the cost of in-house staff – thus allowing your own employees to build your practice and your revenues.
