As part of mental health billing solutions, we offer the following solutions -

  1. Claims Processing

    We extract data from patient encounters such as insurance information and patient demography to ensure successful documentation and to know 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.

  2. Payment Posting

    Under mental health medical billing services, payment posting is a critical process. 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. To ensure that every collectible in the medical billing system is tracked, our payment posting solution makes sure to plug the leak (if any). All payment details are stored in the document management system to be retrieved for future reference.

  3. Follow-up and Appeals

    There can be instances when your payment is delayed or if it is lesser than the invoiced amount. In such cases, we follow up with insurance providers for advice on claims status and file appeals (if required) against the short pay. Mental health billing companies like us can help you stay updated at every stage of the billing process so that you can worry less about getting your invoice covered.

  4. 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.

  5. Patient Billing

    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 ensure that their queries are answered via phone calls. 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.
