Title: Benefits Of Outsourcing Mental Health Billing Services

Benefits Of Outsourcing Mental Health Billing
  • With more people becoming aware of psychological
    problems and spending more money on psychiatry
    during the past ten years, the number of mental
    health experts and clinics has increased
    dramatically. Despite the growing need for mental
    health services, it is becoming increasingly more
    difficult for professional providers to receive
    fair compensation for their labor.
  • In the US, millions of teenagers and adults
    struggle with behavioral health concerns, with 1
    in 5 persons (18 and older) suffering from a
    mental disease. Only around 45, or 20 million,
    of the roughly 44 million mature Americans with
    mental illnesses in 2014 obtained mental health
    care in the previous year.

Mental Health Medical Billing
  • Understanding the concept
    of Mental Health Medical Billing
  • Medical billing includes submitting claims for
    the patients healthcare services.
  • Medical billing for behavioral health may be more
    challenging than for other healthcare specialties
    due to the specialtys complexity.
  • Therefore, it is crucial to outsource medical
    billing services which are equipped with the
    proper knowledge, skills, and tools to enable
    your healthcare institution to keep providing
    quality care for eating disorders, substance
    addiction, and mental health.

Difference between Mental Health and Traditional
  • Although difficult to understand, the assessment
    and treatment of mental illness play a critical
    role in a patients overall health.
  • As a result, psychiatrists and counselors deliver
    services very differently from other types of
    healthcare providers.
  • In comparison to other practices, the field of
    mental health also lacks a defined procedure.
  • The wide variety of services on offer is one of
    the causes of that.

  • The majority of money spent on behavioral
    healthcare goes into treatment sessions, and
    insurance providers keep track of how many
    sessions take place each day and for how long.
  • Because of this, it is more difficult for
    clinicians to reconcile their medical care with a
    reliable and effective billing system which is
    why outsourcing medical billing is becoming
  • High claim denial rates are a result of budget
    restrictions, a lack of committed staff to modify
    billing codes for behavioral health, insurance
    limitations, and regulatory changes.
  • As a result, charging for mental health services
    is very different from billing for regular
    medical services due to all the regulations and
    financial requirements.

Why Outsource Mental Healthcare Billing
  • Here are the common signs, your mental healthcare
    billing should be outsourced
  • The task of medical billing may be time-consuming
    and frustrating for your administrative
    personnel. In addition to being time-consuming
    due to the ongoing training needed to stay
    current with regulatory changes, the procedure
    also takes important time off from their other
    specific duties.
  • High personnel turnover due to administrative
    stress may have a negative impact on the billing
    department. The time and money required to
    continually assemble and educate your staff will
    be wasted, which will slow down the processing of
    insurance claims.

  1. Ineffective coding and billing procedures and
    lower insurance company reimbursements cause poor
    cash flow. Your administrative employees might
    not be knowledgeable or skilled enough to
    identify the problems core cause.
  2. Healthcare providers require enough time to offer
    treatment to their clients, but because of the
    time-consuming chore of coding and billing
    doctors have less resources to devote to their
  3. Incomplete payer credentialing, which they
    believed had already been taken care of by their
    internal staff.
  4. The patient demographics and insurance details
    were either incorrectly recorded or the payers
    benefits and coverage were never confirmed.

  • When compared to treating patients, the payment
    process can indeed be frustrating and often a
    drag but, the earlier you begin, the sooner you
    will be reimbursed.

    health billing services to health billing
