I have heard that there are web based billing software packages but I don't know the cost and I would suspect that not all would support the billing components of anesthesia (time based codes, modifiers...) and also unsure if purchase of such a system includes electronic claim support. See posts under General Discussion - I think I remember seeing a few names of web based software companies.
At 20 cases a month it would be hard to justify the purchase price of a billing software system. For this low number of claims the group would most likely be exempt from mandatory electronic claims submissions. Many insurance companies have manual entry on-line claims submission. Not very efficient but at least it gets the claims submitted and paid. For those payers that do not have on-line submission, you would then be looking at paper claim submission. These CMS 1500 forms could be "formatted" as a word document. Then, from the accounting and monthly statements stand points, these could be also be accomplished with word documents and or/any accounting tool (Excel spreadsheet). These options would have limited reporting capabilities but still gives accountability and, if the group expands, they could reconsider purchasing a billing software package.
