It may be expected as when someone retires or it may be unexpected but you need to have a plan in place for when the relationship ends. It will be a much better parting of ways if you have a plan of action for how things will be handled. The whole reason for a good contract is to protect you but your contract can do much more than protect. You can weed out potential problem providers that will drive you crazy. If you are not in agreement with your providers on what each of you will be contributing to the relationship then the likelihood of the account going smoothly is very small. Dont make the mistake of skimping on an important part of your business that may save you from defending yourself in court down the road.
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.
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.
