Bill Sample / December 8, 2018 / Lessie Larson
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.
You want to imagine a symbiotic relationship with your providers and then list the reasons this relationship works and put those actions in your contract as responsibilities of yourself or the provider. You need a list of everything that you have ever heard of going wrong in a medical billing business between the provider and the biller. You need to decide how you would avoid those situations if possible and cover how it would best be handled in your contract if unavoidable. What you are charging your provider and how you will get paid is a fairly important part of your contract. Are you charging a percentage a flat rate or a per claim fee? Is it clearly defined how you are charging? Is the percentage on what is billed out or what is received? Are patient payments included? If charging per claim what constitutes a claim? Is it a line on a claim form or is it per page? You also need to take into account what will happen when the relationship ends.
But there are other survey companies that will reward you with points. Over time these points accumulate and you will get great free gifts that are redeemable with the points. The process works well as each reliable company has thousands of people registered with them from all over the world. Another advantage is that all these survey sites send you samples that you can use for your review process in taking surveys. So along with money and free gifts you are also likely to get samples that are sent directly to your postal address. The only drawback with the free online surveys is that the number of surveys that you get will depend on the geographical location you are located at. As a result always make sure to send in a complete and detailed profile with the correct address or you could lose out on surveys and samples too.
