Where are my reimbursement checks sent?
All payment checks continue to go directly to your office. You simply provide us with a copy of the insurance EOB or patient payments and we will post payments and follow-up on any denials or outstanding balances.
How often are patients billed? What are soft collections?
Patients are billed on a monthly basis for any balance due after EOBs are received and insurance payments are applied. Patients will then receive past due notices after 30, 60 and 90 days. We refer to this as soft collections. If these attempts to collect fail, we recommend turning the account over to a collection agency.
How do you handle clients not in your immediate area?
We are able to handle clients from all over the country. Since most transactions are handled by fax, phone and mail, distance is not a factor.
