Make sure you take the time and experience of others to get everything you need covered in your contract. Are you feeling the crunch of a tight economy? Are you looking for fun and easy ways to save money? Well you are in luck because there are so many free product samples today that allow you to save money each week. Companies are using free samples as direct advertising tools. They want you to try their products for free hoping that you will purchase the next one. It is a marketing strategy that worked for many companies. This is the reason why free samples by mail programs have persisted over the years. For your part getting free items is a fun and convenient way of saving a few dollars each week. The range of free products available for you is amazing.
It is a good idea to try to think of everything that can go wrong in the relationship and write down your feelings about how those situations should be handled. You should be able to come up with a long list. In the circumstances of a new biller it can be difficult to know what can go wrong. It has been sixteen years since we started our medical billing business and we are still learning about new things that can go wrong. Most providers expect to sign some form of contract when using a third party service and generally expect the billing service to produce it. They want to make sure they are covered as well as the medical billing service. Going over the contract with a provider starting out with you can set the stage for a successful relationship. You can go over the terms carefully making sure the provider understands what you need to make it a beneficial partnership. Most of us when we are starting our businesses do not realize how much a good contract can affect their business.
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.
