BEHAVIORAL HEALTH BILLING

We understand that Behavioral Health billing is distinctly different from other types of medical billing and it is more difficult than other areas of healthcare because of the types of services, time, scope, and restraints placed on mental health treatments. For one, 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.

As your behavioral health practice grows over the years and you expand your patient pool as well as the number of healthcare professionals providing services to them, it can be difficult to keep staffing levels at the right amount to handle your billing.

Behavioral health billing can be more complicated due to the fractional nature of services that must be coordinated. When work in this area exceeds your staffers’ normal capacity, many managers of these practices turn to outsource their billing.

General Benefits of Outsourcing to Careeo:

  • Maximizes Productivity
  • Enhances Patient Engagement
  • Reduces Operational Costs

Less time spent on the 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.

As you can see, there is a large amount of work that goes into filing claims correctly for mental health providers. Because of this, it is not surprising that many providers choose to employ a third-party billing company to handle claims, so they have more time to focus on patient care and treatment.if you think this is the right choice for your facility. We want your time spent where it matters most- on patient health, not handling disputes with insurance companies.
