Plus, newly developed software means it’s never been easier. Read on for 7 reasons you need to hire a therapy billing service, followed by a quick breakdown of Thrizer's groundbreaking offerings.
Here's our top 7 reasons. Make sure to read #7 where we myth-bust about the cost of outsourcing.
When you outsource your billing, you’re delegating to professionals.
These professionals can navigate insurance claims with ease due to years of experience. And they do it with care and consistency.
Outsource your billing to take advantage of this in your practice.
Your staff can be doing a lot of good for your practice. So, why have them filling out insurance paperwork at all?
Let professionals handle your clients insurance claims, and use your staff to run your business smoothly in other ways.
Try having them screen clients, maintain a clean office environment, follow up with clients for feedback, promote other services, or whatever your business needs.
Insurance claims are exhausting.
The good news is that once you’ve outsourced your insurance processes, you’ll have more time and energy for your clients.
If you want to have a bigger impact with your clients, outsourced billing is the way to go.
You can save 5+ hours every week on billing, even if you’re a solo practitioner. If you run a group practice, this number is much higher.
This is 250 hours minimum each year that you’re currently not being paid for, so why not let someone else handle the billing process?
Outsource the least enjoyable part of your day, and let the experts handle your insurance and reimbursements with ease.
Another reason you need to outsource your insurance billing is to get off the phone.
If you handle it yourself, you or your staff will be on the phone with insurance daily. And that’s not to mention your clients, who will be calling to ask where their reimbursements are.
Instead, free yourself or your staff from phone duty. Outsource this process and allow your clients and their insurance to call your therapy billing service, not you.
One easily overlooked cost of doing your billing in-house is peace of mind.
When you do your billing in-house, you have to worry about employee turnover, staff vacations, staying on top of new billing rules, and more.
Skip the stress. Outsource your billing today and get peace of mind
Let’s say you spend 5 hours per week following up with insurance.
Since insurance doesn’t take a vacation, someone will need to do this for all 52 weeks of the year.
Let’s do the math:
$15/hour staff pay
X 5 hours per week
X 52 weeks per year
= $3,900 every year
Now, what if you don’t have staff to help you? There goes 250+ hours each year towards insurance billing and follow up that you’re not getting paid for.
If you do have staff to help you? That’s 250+ hours each year that your staff could spend elsewhere. Not to mention that a professional service can handle insurance claims better.
And what if you have a bigger practice? Some practices pay an in-house medical biller $25,000 to $40,000 every year to do this alone.
With all of the downsides of doing your billing in-house, there has to be a better way.
If you’re convinced that outsourcing your billing duties is the way to go, good.
Now, what should you look for with your billing company?
The right company can help with a few different tasks, including:
Now you may be convinced you need a trusted 3rd party for your insurance billing, and you know what to look for when you’re ready to hire. So, which company is the best option?
