Mental Health Billing Services We Offer
At Flatworld Solutions, we know how to efficiently improve patient and insurance collections without stressing your administrative teams. We offer a simplified web access to your team to get a 360-degree view of the financial stats, so you can experience the transparency of our services. As part of mental health billing services, we offer the following solutions -
We extract data from patient encounters such as insurance information and patient demography to ensure successful documentation and if your patients have authorization before transmitting claims to the insurance provider. To ensure smooth billing we keep track of your revenue cycle, aging reports, and other KPI. We also aid in filing secondary claims and automatic crossover.
Under behavioral health billing services, payment posting is a critical process where we track the invoiced payment that owed to your practice for the mental psychiatric consultation and procedure. Once we obtain the money from patients and insurers, it is posted in your medical billing system for claims reconciliation. Our payment posting solution plugs the leak (if any) to ensure every collectible is tracked without fall out. All payment details are stored in the document management system to be retrieved for future reference.
Follow-up and Appeals
When your payment is delayed or if it lesser than the invoiced amount we follow-up with insurance providers for advice on claims status and file appeals (if required) against the short pay. We can help you stay updated at every stage of the mental health billing process so that you can worry less about getting your invoice covered.
Verification of Benefits
Before setting an appointment with the psychiatrist, we get in touch with insurance companies and present the patient portfolio to check what portion of the treatment is covered and what isn't. The complete listicle of benefits is communicated to mental healthcare providers so that a custom healthcare plan can be designed for the patient. Details such as out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles, yearly visitation limits, and authorization constraints will be communicated to the patient before they are seen.
We take the responsibility to send invoices via email or direct mail. If your patient has queries related to billing and the patient account, we open our phone lines for a personalized engagement. We send routine payment reminders to late paying and non-paying patients urging them to clear the dues at a licensed collection agency referred by us under your approval.
Want to know the financial health of your practice? Then you can get hold of 30+ reports on patient aging, insurance aging, routine summaries, and individual analysis report on reimbursement for various payers.
