Open your Yellow Pages directory, and start calling the companies listed in the Billing Services category. Once you get over the shock of how many telephone numbers are disconnected, you’ll find that the rest are often reluctant to do mental health billing. They may charge high rates or require monthly minimums because it isn’t profitable for them to serve a solo clinician or small group.
PsychBiller, LLC specializes exclusively in psychiatry, psychology, and neuropsychology. We focus our energy and commitment on staying current in this field alone, and strive for excellence in an ever changing business. Our small size allows us to maintain personal contact with you, the clinician, and get to know your practice in a way a larger company can’t.
You’ve got to have confidence in the company to whom you’ve entrusted your billing. After all, it’s your money at stake. In addition to general liability insurance, PsychBiller, LLC carries an employee dishonesty bond. Though not required by the Commonwealth of Virginia, we believe it gives our clients extra peace of mind.
We’re constantly searching for ways to automate and streamline our business processes.
Whenever possible, we submit claims electronically via a reliable clearinghouse or direct electronic connections. Electronic claims are more accurate, and are often paid a week or two sooner than paper claims.
Many billing companies outsource jobs to other countries because it lowers their costs. We believe in keeping your sensitive information here in the United States under the full protection of federal and state laws.
The solo clinician and small group practice are alone in the wilderness of managed care. The pressure to join groups for economies of scale continues, but those groups themselves are under enormous pressure to become and stay profitable. We believe the small practice is still viable, but needs support to stay focused on patient care and free up time for marketing and nurturing a network of referral sources. That’s what PsychBiller, LLC does best—supporting clinicians caring for people in need.
