We understand that mental health billing is distinctly different from other types of medical billing. For one, the mental health payer is not always the same as the medical payer. Reimbursement may be handled by a third party such as Value Options or Magellan. Medicare, Blue shield, Tricare and EAP may have their out own authorization and billing criteria. Our experienced staff understands and CPT and ICD coding for therapy, evaluation and management neuropsych, academic testing, and evaluation and management claims.
Let us put our experience to work for you.
Our services reduce staff costs because you don’t pay payroll taxes, benefits and workman’s comp. Access to PBA’s on-line system, also means no need for expensive billing/scheduling software, training and maintenance costs.
With timely claims filing and aggressive follow up on unpaid accounts, PBA clients report a 20-30% increase in collections and improved cash flow.
Less time spent on billing will give you peace of mind and more opportunity to focus on what you love—caring for your patients! You will also have more time to devote to growing your practice without being overwhelmed by administrative headaches.
