Getting Started with Billing Advantage
Initiating the Process
Once you have decided to move forward, we will send you out a startup packet. This packet includes forms for you to complete giving us information about your practice and providers, the contract, etc. You complete this and send it back to us, along with the signed contract and startup fee. Once we have received the signed contract and payment from you, we can begin the startup process.
Importing the Data
We can work with you to migrate existing patient demographics you have from most practice management systems, or even from an Excel spreadsheet.
Setup and Training
We offer a wide range of options for setup and training. Kareo (the software we use) has a free program called “Kareo University,” which offers an array of training materials, videos, one-on-one training, etc. In addition, we offer free telephone support and training during the setup process. For those practices that would like on-site set-up and training, we offer this as well. The pricing for this is based on hourly rates, including travel and accommodation costs if needed.
We work closely with you just before and after you “go live” (start the medical billing process with us). Our startup team ensures that all setup has been completed before we submit any claims so that claims go correctly the first time and everything is done properly from the get-go. We have found that this greatly reduces headaches in the long run. We provide early follow-up on the first few batches of claims that are submitted to make sure that there are no problems.
