Our Mental Health Billing Services

Receiving accurate and timely insurance reimbursement for mental health services can be challenging. Limited mental health insurance coverage; high co-pays & deductibles; and frequent pre-authorization requirements makes it challenging to collect mental health insurance reimbursements. Through our comprehensive mental health billing services, we assist providers to receive accurate insurance reimbursements from various insurance companies. Our mental health billing services include,

  • Benefits verification: Prior to a patient’s visit, we communicate with their insurance provider to verify the patient’s coverage status. This allows us to understand the type of mental health services that are covered and the benefits that are available including, any out-of-pocket expenses, visit limits, deductibles, and other such details.
  • Coding: When a mental health provider submits patient data, we review the documentation to determine the appropriate CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) codes to assign to the services provided. To assign the correct CPT codes, we look for information in the patient documentation, such as the type and length of therapy provided, any additional services provided (such as testing or assessments), and any diagnoses or symptoms mentioned by the patient.
  • Claims processing: We will create a claim form that contains all of the necessary information about the patient, the services provided, and the associated costs. The claim form is typically submitted electronically to the insurance company. The crucial information like the patient’s demographics, insurance information, and treatment details is cross-checked before submitted the claims.
  • Payment posting: Once the insurance company approves the claim, they will send payment to the mental health practice or the providers’ account. We will posts the payment to the patient’s account and generates a report for the mental health practice.
  • Claim follow up: Medisys follows up with the insurance companies to ensure that the claim has been received and processed. We will take follow up on every single submitted claim and will mark every claim as paid or denied. In case of any issues or denials, we work to resolve them and resubmits the claim if necessary.
  • Reporting: We create multiple reports after the completion of a monthly billing cycle. These billing reports enlist total payments received and charges for an entire year till date. These reports can be leveraged to determine and analyze payment trends. This will help you to identify areas in your service plan that can be improved to maximize revenue generation.

Our Mental Health Credentialing Services

Credentialing is a critical step for the mental health providers who wants to start billing various insurance companies. Provider credentialing involves verifying and evaluating the mental health provider’s education, training, certification, and licensing to ensure that they meet the standards and criteria of the insurance company, regulatory bodies, and other organizations. In our credentialing services we assist you in entire credentialing process for all insurance companies including Medicare and Medicaid. The key steps of provider credentialing are as follows:

  • Verification of credentials and qualifications: This includes checking the provider’s education, training, licensure, certifications, and any other credentials.
  • Background checks: This includes checking for any criminal history or disciplinary actions against the provider.
  • Review of work history: This includes reviewing the provider’s employment history, clinical experience, and any references or recommendations.
  • Compliance with insurance company requirements: This includes ensuring that the mental health provider meets the specific credentialing requirements of the insurance company, including participating in the network, maintaining malpractice insurance, and complying with billing and coding guidelines.
