Bill Sample / December 8, 2018 / Alissa Mcmahon
But we basically searched until we found a sample very simple contract and modified it for our use. For several years we told ourselves that it was fine and if it wasnt working out for the provider then it wasnt working for us either and we should move on and find new clients. It took us a long time to realize that in several situations our simple contract was actually the reason things were not working out. When you first start your medical billing business you have no idea of the things that can go wrong in a relationship with your clients so you do not know what needs to be included in a contract. Our first contract did not even specify the responsibilities of either the provider or ourselves. It is amazing we were able to find providers willing to sign our contract.
To check the market for the goods they have produced most companies will hire market surveyors who will take a cross section of population and ask them whether they would be interested in buying such a product. A few survey sites will take a detailed questionnaire and then send you a free sample. This will require you to register with survey sites and then produce your detailed profile to their site. According to your geographical location and the profile you have submitted you will be eligible for a huge range of surveys. Sites like SurveyScout and GlobalTestMarket are all survey companies that have international clients and run surveys nearly every second. But the payment process of each company will vary. A few companies will reward you about a dollar to ten dollars for every survey that you finish.
Billing performance measurement is an integral part of medical practice billing process and a prerequisite to effective practice management. Systematic measurement becomes mission-critical with growth of billing complexity or outsourcing of the billing function. Traditional billing metrics are limited in scope and focus on claim submission process ignoring process imperfections on the insurance (payer) side. Modern computer technologies allow both productive measurement and effective action by the disciplined billing office to improve claim submission and payment processes. Using appropriate metrics helps improve policies and procedures shorten revenue cycle reduce patient complaints improve financial performance and compliance increase cash flow reduce bad debt identify areas of potential growth improve employee morale increase productivity and reduce costs.
