Mental Health Billing Ideas

 

Using Virtual Assistants With Experience with Mental Health Professionals for Can Be Efficient Private Practices

Virtual assistant billers telecommute using your software or theirs, to provide billing in a more efficient way, allowing you to better oversee your business than is possible with the reports provided by local traditional medical billing services. The billers we can refer you to have experience and interest specifically in working with mental health professionals, including small solo professionals whose number of claims are too small for more traditional local medical billing services to taylor their services to.

Some virtual assistants offer other services that make practice management easier for small practices, such as telephone answering and appointment scheduling.  Electronic billing can be done with software residing on your computer, on the billing service computer, or on a secure web based service.  It can be one you or your staff have been using or the biller can set you up with a new one. With most of these options, you can access your practice information 24/7. 

What is remote mental health and psychology billing?  The internet and advanced technology allow your biller to telecommute--- using a computer to log into your computer or a web-based billing site to file insurance claims and doing your billing electronically.  The insurance claims are filed electronically and with some insurance companies your remittance advice (Explanations of Benefits) can be received electronically also.  A remote biller able to telecommute to your own computer may even be able to enter the payment information without your having to fax or mail the EOBS of the larger insurers.  A remote biller can do the same things for you that a biller could do in your office, saving you large amounts of time.

Electronic Insurance Claims Filing and Electronic Remittance Advice

Filing mental health insurance claims electronically means faster payment for you.  Insurance companies also generally prefer receiving claims electronically.  Some will no longer be taking paper claims.  Now health insurance companies also provide electronic remittance advice.  These virtual assistant mental health billing services are set up to take advantage of this and save you additional time and headaches for your psychotherapy or psychology billing.  Their primary purpose is so that you spend minimal time on psych billing activities-- not only filing the claims, but in many cases they can record the payments from insurance companies without the need for you to send us Explanations of Benefits. 

Office Therapy® Billing Software for Mental Health Billing

Office Therapy® by Docutrac, is the technology solution I have used for remote psych billing.  Office Therapy is designed specifically for insurance filing for mental health professionals: for counselor billing, social worker billing, psychology billing and other therapist billing.  It's affordable and has many nice features to help you run a practice.  You can also get QuicDoc, by the same company, to make your clinical and psychiatric documentation process easier.

Web Based Mental Health Billing Software

If you prefer not to invest in any billing software, a virtual assistant can do your psychology billing using their own software on their computer, or using your subscription to an affordable web based billing system for mental health professionals that gives you access to your information at all times through the Internet.  


 

 

 

 

This medical billing referral service is in the process of being revised, due to lack of time as I run my own practice. Currently I am only making referrals to one biller, Cindy Dicara, who has done work for me and whom I have also consistently received good reports from other therapists in prior surveys.

You can reach Cindy at Patient Medical Claims Assistance LLC, 1-888-653-3933 ext 506. Or email her at cindydicara@verizon.net
