Why Choose Billing Advantage for Large Group Mental Health Billing?
Large group mental health practices trust Billing Advantage for their billing needs because we grew out of our own psychotherapy practice. Donna Whipple and Rick Kaufman, the owners and founders of Billing Advantage, are both therapists. Donna is a psychologist, and Rick is a social worker. We run a 24-clinician group practice called Psychotherapy Associates of North Reading. Because of this experience, we are uniquely positioned to understand the needs of large group mental health practices and psychiatry practices.
We are very familiar with the intricacies of this type of billing, including carve-outs for mental health services, authorization requirements, confidentiality concerns, and more.
Also, as business owners of a mental health practice, we understand first hand the financial requirements of getting claims paid in a timely manner. That’s why we work with you to ensure that there are efficient systems to get all the claims submitted in a timely manner and to handle and issues that arise that could delay payment.
We allow you and your clinicians to concentrate on the clinical work while we take care of making sure that you get paid for your work.
Mental Health Billing Software
Through patient scheduling, documentation of time, methodology and results, a good mental health billing software can greatly assist practice management and billing. But software requires updates to mitigate security risks and can’t function properly without being operated by trained personnel. At the very least, it’s best to have a designated team, individual or third-party to monitor the billing software.
Billing Advantage uses a software program called Kareo, one of the top-ranked billing software programs for security and reliability. From day one, data exchange is secure and specific to your needs – fax, email, etc. You can also access it whenever you want, 24 hours a day, every day of the week. A software program in itself is just a tool, but Billing Advantage specialists understand how to use the Kareo tool to its fullest and are there to answer your questions.
