The book coming out now is just on Medicare credentialing.  We are going to follow with others.  There is a competition on winning one.  I will email you the link.

Hello Michele:  thanks for your response about the credentialing book.  I am new to blogging, where exactly do you submit the blog, to this site?  Or is there another area I am unaware of?

thanks for any help

Credentialing is a great add on service but it is done at different level of "tiers" Basic credentialing does not entail much, those charging a full credential fee/hourly rate should set that rate depending on the level of credentialing they are doing. Most who offer this do not understand there are other layers of it beyond submitting applications. I have the ability, knowledge & experience to take it further with contract and fee schedule review and negotiations. If you have NEVER done those parts it would be a dis-service to your provider to not recommend someone to do that portion of the credentialing, therefore your rate should not be of a high end to allow the practice to afford the other full service of credentialing.. There is also "de-credentialing" many carriers have specific guidelines for opting out of a network, rules to follow, procedures to render, etc.

Hi Michele....just wanted to let you know that at some point I may be interested in the online demo of Xena, also I am planning on getting the credentialing book, however, I am waiting til I have a little more income, need to curve my expenses until I grow a little more.  I have two psychologists that have small practices that I am doing billing for right now, I have two that are seriously considering my service, if they sign up, I will feel much better about spending the money and hoping to spread my wings a little.  Does Xena have their own clearinghouse for electronic claims,  or do you need to purchase that seperately?  Right now I use therapist helper and it's all included...?  thanks again for all the info, this site has been extremely helpful.

When you are ready let me know, I can help you get it set up.  They do not have their own clearing house but they are going to give you options.  For example, they are using Availity which is free, so no cost to the user, but they are also going to be set up with others.  If there are any fees, the user will be responsible.  But the user has the choice of which clearing house they want to use.

Don't forget, we are having a contest to give away one of our free books.  It ends Feb. 2nd.  You can post your entry on our blog:

Hi, thanks for the info, I did post a blog hoping to win a copy of the book.  I hope I posted it in the correct place...anyway, do you know when you are announcing a winner?  Thanks again for the info.  I need to find out the exact date of my contract ending with Therapist helper.  I know it's in March some time.  I'll be in touch about Xena.  Another quick question for all of you on this site.  Have any of you ever met up in person?  I know most things can be communicated over the internet, but just was wondering if any of you have ever visited each other's offices etc.?

Hi,

Can you send me the link for the credentialing book?  I think I am overlooking when searching the page for books to order.

Thanks,

Melissa

We are working on a whole line, but only have the Medicare CMS 855I book done so far.  Will make an announcement when the others come out!

Thanks
