Billing for Psychiatrists
As a psychiatrist, your days are filled with helping patients with their mental health. Understanding the deep connection between the mind and the body is a crucial aspect of your job and knowing how mental illness can affect a patient physically (and vice versa) is key in establishing a diagnosis and the appropriate treatment.
Because each patient comes with a unique set of factors to take into account, you probably spend a lot of your time developing the best approach to provide top-quality care for every single case. This means that you have less time to dedicate to the more administrative aspects of your job such as paperwork, billing claims, filing, and beyond.
When you're expected to do it all, it's important to have the time management skills necessary to complete all of your daily tasks. What's even more important is having the tools you need to get everything done in the most effective and efficient way possible.
ClinicAid is a psychiatrist's best billing solution
There are a lot of billing systems out there, but many of them don't have the features a psychiatrist needs to complete their billing quickly and easily. ClinicAid's intuitive interface is designed to make the billing process fast, simple, and direct.
Psychiatric billing claims require a number of specific details to be included in order for them to be processed correctly. Next to the appropriate service code, there are additional fee modifiers and sometimes even time stamps required in order for the claim to be processed and approved by the provincial governing body. ClinicAid ensures that all of the codes required for a psychiatric billing claim are kept up-to-date.
ClinicAid is automated, web-based billing software which means you can take it with you wherever you need to. The software is built to include handy features such as:
- Customisable favourites lists for service and diagnostic codes,
- Default forms that auto-fill diagnostic and service codes for common claims,
- Patient profiles for each patient in your care,
- Sharing options for colleagues in the office,
- A review of previous bills claimed for a patient, visible each time you create a new invoice,
- A ready-to-use scheduling module, keeping your day on track.
A group billing feature is also on its way to being released, making billing for psychiatric group sessions quick and painless.
When your day is filled with appointments, worrying about submitting your psych claims should be the last thing that's on your mind. ClinicAid's billing system is so advanced that it will even alert you when making common billing mistakes, will show you any claim rejections so you can deal with them immediately, and will even remind you of billing opportunities. And if you ever need help, our friendly staff is available to help you by phone or email, no matter how big or small your question is.
If you're looking to complete your psychiatric billing as quickly as possible, while still making sure it's done accurately, then ClinicAid is the best billing solution for you and your clinic's psychiatrists.
