Reduce Your Account Receivable Balances

"My practice is being sold to a young podiatrist with very little business knowledge. Our SMB Biller has done a great job of helping get everything ready for the sale and take over by the new owner. She has answered a million questions. I just wanted you to know how special She is and how much I appreciate everything the entire SMB organization has done for us." - Current SMB Client     Unsolicited Testimonials

Why SMB Medical Billing?

Print?

SMB Medical Billing only does Podiatry Medical Billing

Nothing else. This is important because it forces SMB to focus on and do one thing very well. SMB is never distracted by other types of doctors or lines of business. Others will try to convince you that they obtain additional operating efficiency by handling other types of doctors and businesses, but all it does is distract them from doing the best job they could do for you.

You have your own Personal Biller

Your personal biller gets to know, understand and learn how to work closely with you and your office staff. You do not have to explain who you are each time you contact SMB. Your personal biller has an invested interest in your success. Thus, your biller is diligently protecting your interests. And your biller is always searching for ways to increase your revenue of which they would advise you.

Humans can never be replaced in the medical reimbursement cycle

Many have tried, and all have failed. This is true for two reasons:

  1. Payors are constantly changing their reimbursement rules. Not only by plan and procedure, but also by individual areas of the country and individual patients. Why? To keep the medical practice from maximizing their reimbursements. To program and keep these rules updated in a timely fashion has been tried often, but all have failed. It is not enough to understand the reimbursement rules of a payor/procedure code, you must also allow for variations by location, patient, etc. Only human billers, who are focused and have a personal interest in maximizing the reimbursements for a Doctor, have shown to be consistently capable of being successful at this over time.
  2. SMB's in-depth experience in Podiatry Medical Billing has found that each Podiatry Practice is unique and has its own special requirements. Computer programs cannot allow for this variation in a Practice's method of operations and philosophy. Thus, without the human biller involved, the Practice suffers.

Case Study

Print?
  • Situation: A Doctor and the Office Manager, Podiatry Practice
  • Critical Issue: The large amount of money the Practice had tied up in account receivables of over 90 days was unacceptable.
  • Reasons: The Practice's government and insurance payors as well as patients were not promptly paying the Practice. The reasons for this were many and varied. They included: the Practice had trouble routinely and consistently contacting the payors; the Practice was at a severe disadvantage when trying to aggressively negotiate with the payors on disputed EOBs; errors that creep into the system were not discovered for 90 days or longer; etc.
  • Capabilities: The Doctor and the Office Manager said that they need a service that tracked the status of all reimbursements within their account receivables and take immediate action if the process for payment to the Practice stalled at any point.
  • SMB Provided: SMB provides the Doctor and the Office Manager these capabilities.
  • Results: SMB has reduced the Practice's outstanding 90 day account receivables balance to less than 3% of the Practice's total reimbursements.
