However if your in true document creation then you need something a little bit more detailed. Often clients are not entirely sure what they want. Sample business proposals are excellent in that they allow the client to see what their logo and letterhead will look like on different designs and thus allows the client several different options which makes the decision process that much easier. This also allows you to save time by not having to schedule endless meetings because the document is "just not quite right." Sample business proposals allow you to give your client a choice which moves the client along in the decision making process and will allow you to get a client signature to begin the work. It also allows you to complete the project very quickly taking into account the businesss specific look and feel as well as how they word their documents.
Followup may take the form of a phone call to payer to discover a lost claim or to receive interpretation of denial message correction of earlier submitted data resubmission of the original claim consultation with the provider and medical notes or denial appeal. Both FPP and Denial rates are very important metrics often used for billing process improvement. The upside of FPP/Denial metric is that it is charge-invariant but its downside is that it hides the differences between process imperfections on the claim submission and claim payment sides. To identify patterns of problem CPT codes or payers FPP/Denial metric needs to be computed and compared across all pairs of payer-CPT code which is a standard feature for modern billing technologies.
When we started our Medical Billing Service in 1994 there was very little information available on medical billing services let alone medical billing service contracts. In fact some of the information indicated that you really didnt even need a contract if you didnt want one. That couldnt be further from the truth! Having a contract for your Medical Billing Service is very important to protect both you and the provider. Many new billing services ask us for a sample contract or a copy of our contract. Using a sample contract or somebody elses contract is not a good idea. It would be like taking somebody elses will whiting out their name and writing in yours. The only time it will hurt you is when you die and then your family could be in trouble.
