This support is generally customized based on your administrative, technical, or creative needs. VAs are generally paid $15.00 to $25.00 hourly depending on your geographical location and requirements.
Medical billing is the preparation and submission of invoices and claims for procedures rendered. These invoices and claims are given to patients and insurance companies. Medical Billers act as the middleman between patients, providers, and payers. Mental health services aren’t billed the same as other specialties. The rules and regulations of the industry are constantly changing. Insurance companies have built in a lot of limitations on claim submissions, therapy sessions and often require pre-approval for patients who require more than basic treatment. A trained Medical Biller helps the provider navigate the maze.
