General Mental Health Billing FAQ’s

Will I have someone personally overseeing my billing?2023-02-05T17:13:40-05:00

You will be assigned to a dedicated Account Manager who will personally oversee the day-to-day operations of your practice and get to know your specific needs.

I am not able to keep track of which claims aren’t paid, and then I lose money because things aren’t submitted “Timely.” Will I have to keep track of which claims are paid, or do you do that?2023-02-05T17:13:26-05:00

This is what we are here for!  Every month we generate an internal “Aging Report”  to do follow up on unpaid claims at that time.  Since our claims are filed electronically through our clearinghouse, we receive any rejections on a timely and regular basis.

Do I retain control over my money?2023-02-05T17:13:11-05:00

Absolutely. We never receive your checks. Patient and insurance checks are payable to you and received at your address.

What are your hours? Will I be able to reach you when I need to?2023-02-05T17:12:56-05:00

Typically someone is in the office from 9 am eastern time to 5 pm eastern time, Monday through Friday. Our fax machine is on to receive faxes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We are also always accessible by e-mail.

Are you able to check benefits ahead of time so that I know how much to charge my patient when s/he comes in for the first time?2024-03-06T12:40:11-05:00

Checking benefits is one of the many services we offer.

Can my patients call you directly if they have questions about their insurance?2023-02-05T17:12:24-05:00

On all our patient statements our toll-free number is listed.  Patients can call with billing questions if needed.

Do you keep track of authorizations?2023-02-05T17:12:08-05:00

We recommend in-house authorization tracking and will provide additional support through our system.

Can you do patient statements?2023-02-05T17:11:52-05:00

Sending patient statements is included as part of our services at no extra cost.

I don’t participate with insurance or managed care companies but patients want me to submit claims. Can you do that for me?2023-02-05T17:11:37-05:00

We can service you regardless of your network status with insurance companies.

Do you specialize in mental health?2024-03-06T12:41:12-05:00

Yes.  Billshrinkers, Inc. is owned and operated by Philip Yucht, Ph.D.  We specialize in mental health billing exclusively.

How much does it cost?2023-02-05T17:11:04-05:00

Please call us to discuss your particular needs.

How does it work?2023-02-05T17:10:40-05:00

It’s simple.  You send us forward a benefit inquiry to us and we check and verify benefits.  You complete a daily activity form and transmit that to us, we enter your activity into our practice management system, or, alternatively you can access our system directly and enter your work from your computer.  We then submit your claims.  You receive payment.  We receive most of your Explanation of Benefits (EOB) electronically. We take care of the rest!  Find out more about how it works!

I’m not located in New Jersey, can you still do my billing?2023-02-05T17:10:16-05:00

Absolutely! We are a nationwide billing service.
