Bill Sample / December 8, 2018 / Lessie Larson
You would have gotten the product by simply from filling out an easy form without spending a dime. Its quite an easy process. If youre in the document creation business you know that each customer has their own specific requirements from invoices to direct mail to letterhead. This can make getting a proposal just right difficult as it is extremely hard to interpret what a client is thinking and turn it physically into something that fits the bill. This is where sample business proposals can really help. Consider for a moment that templates of any kind are meant to save the user time in that they can take the basic proposal form and modify it to suit their clients needs. If youre in writing or web creation this is excellent and all youll likely need.
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.
When the doctor has signed a contract that says that he will designate a person responsible for that purpose you can nicely inform the person responsible for getting you the eobs that this is such an important issue to you that it is written into the contract that the doctor signed that you are to be provided with the eobs. You can also include a provision in the contract to specify what you can do if the provider is not providing you with the eobs. Another important example is an issue you will undoubtedly run into - your payment. Many people who start this business are used to receiving a regular paycheck. When you make the move to being an entrepreneur and owning your own business you can only write yourself a paycheck if your providers pay you.
