Medical Billing—Help with Billing for Medical Providers

As a healthcare provider in private or group practice, you know how important medical billing is—it is essential that you collect payments for the services you provide for your clients and patients. However, collecting these payments can be extremely difficult and it’s not uncommon for small (and even large) practices to close their doors after a prolonged period of poor payment collection. In fact, many practices collect significantly less money than they should be receiving from insurance companies. You don’t want to let this happen to your practice. If you’re on this list, you should ensure that you are billing insurance properly:

  • Doctors
  • Psychiatrists
  • Counselors/Psychologists
  • Physicians
  • Physician assistants
  • Hospitals
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Podiatrists
  • Chiropractors
  • Urgent care and doctors
  • Facilities
  • Clinical labs
  • Dentists/Orthodontists
  • Optometrists
