Bill Sample / December 8, 2018 / Wendy Gamble
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.
Medical billing is a leading business related to the health care industry. Medical billing business plans help you achieve your goals in the new business sector of medical billing. Like any other businesses proper planning leads to a winning situation. To start a medical billing service either in a small office or a cooperative business with other medical services you should do a plenty of research to create a detailed business plan. Medical billing business plans guide you throughout the billing business to evaluate the medical practices that fall within your target market segment. The demand for health services is on the increase these days. Medical billing business plans describe all the objectives and the nature of services.
When we started we used a very simple contract that really didnt cover much at all. When situations arose that were problems our contract was no help. We had to re-write it once we had been in the business for a while and knew what needed to be covered. So where does a new billing service start when they havent been in business long? Its hard to write a contract covering all areas and what to do when you havent experienced it yet. Most new billing services are working on limited capital and dont like to spend money on a lawyer writing a contract for them. Unfortunately many new services cut corners here to save money but thats not a good idea. Your contract should be at least looked over by a lawyer if not written by one. If possible you should try to find a general practice attorney who specializes in contracts.
