nelsong5,Thanks again for the replies, extremedly helpful and ill be sure to speak with my partners this monday about the situation.
NCgirl -The medisoft we have costs about $3000, yes it lets you intall that medisoft in various computers, lets you bill in all computers, you can enter patient info in all computers but the domain PC is the only one admitted to transmit to Medicare, unless they have upgraded because we purchased it in 2005. I do believe that the single user medisoft is $1000 dollars, i have not seen anyone else sell it at a cheaper price so id call their customer service if you want more info, hope this helps.
Questions for ARCPC9491:
Do they charge their sevices by a % that is billed? or is it a fixed income that they receive from the people they bill for?
Good things and thank you for the replies, hope this helps not only myself but also the billing community.
If I were to hire you to code and bill my services, I would ask you......Do you send claims electronically? What clearinghouse are you using for Federal, State and commercial payers? Are you going to be using direct deposit and electronic payment posting? What is you number of days for payment? What is your denial rate? Are you willing to come to my office to copy records if I don't have EMR? If you are charging me by the chart, does this mean one charge for the chart from time of coding to time of payment. Will you also be taking care of my creditentialing needs? NPI's? Denials? Appeals? Hearing level appeals? Collections? Mailing statements? Skip tracing?
