FAQs about Our Mental Health Billing Services

Selecting a mental health billing service that’s right for your practice is just as important as deciding to shift your billing responsibilities in the first place. To help determine if we’re a fit for your needs, read through answers to some of the questions our prospects-turned-clients have asked throughout their journeys. 

Our costs are competitive with other mental health billing services. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid, so we are motivated to garner every payment you earned.

Leave the billing and calls to insurance companies to us.

There is a reasonable fee amounting to less than $200 per year to renew so we can continue sending claims through our billing program. No fee is charged to you the same year you pay your start-up fee. It is due the next calendar year after you pay your start-up fee.

Anchor Point Billing Solutions has a handy form our clients complete about their patient insurance information. Once this form is completed, it is uploaded to Anchor Point Billing Solutions and we check the patient’s benefits and then our staff completes the form explaining exactly what you need to collect at the time of service.  If there are any problems we let you know, such as if the patient’s benefits have termed.

Our professional, courteous staff members are on-site and available to speak with your patients during regular business hours.

We encourage our clients to collect at the time of service for the best reimbursement options. Not collecting at the time of service can result in trying to track patients down and sending multiple statements that are disregarded. You may finally have to write off these charges or send to a collection company resulting in lost revenue for your practice. All of this can be avoided by collecting up front. You should be doing this because the patient has a contract with his or her insurance company and that is expected that he or she will comply with paying the responsibility.

Yes this is major part of what Anchor Point Billing Solutions does for our clients to make sure that if the client can get paid, they do get paid.  As we always say “if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid so we are motivated to get in your money”
