There are no more real advantages to a lockbox for a provider than there is just doing reconciliation, clients prefer to keep control.

Thank you Michele. Just the thought of stepping out of my comfort zone is really scary, but you're right the experience in billing mh is very helpful so far, I've been going through and reading the LCDs for these specialties, very helpful. Thank you once again

Hi have not billed for infusion billing but I personally think that based on what you've described below you should use the 96374 and then the 96375 with 4 units and then list each drug separately.

That is awesome!  Starting out with a family practice should be great.  Honestly, I just said this in another post of yours, but your background qualifies you even though you haven't specifically done family practice.  When we hire, we are looking for certain qualities in a worker, drive, common sense, work ethic, etc.  Your friend probably recognizes those qualities in you and knows that you will do well.  You just need a boost of self confidence!

Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and new to infusion billing.  I work for a neurology who is doing Headache Infusions.  She is using 5 different drugs to infuse at different times.  My question is for the IV Push 96375 can I use 4 x's with 59 modifier and 96374 1 x.  Previous billed as 1 x 96375 with the five drugs listed.  I would do it 96374 x 1 J1110, 96375 1 x 59 modifier J1200, 96375 1 x 59 modifier J1885, 96375 1x 59 modifier J2060.  Could use all help available.

Your experience in mental health will definitely help you with the other specialties.  There are definitely things you need to know/learn about each specialty but in my opinion a strong billing background goes a lot further.  You will learn what you need to know.  I don't know of any resources specific to allergy billing.  I would check the Medicare LCD/NCDs.  They can be very useful.  Family practice/internal medicine is pretty straight forward.  You need to learn about the well visit E&Ms vs the 99201-99215 and how to bill if pt is seen for both on the same day.  But most visits are just one E&M code.  Billing is pretty much the same as mental health except auth/referrals are not usually needed since provider is most likely the PCP.  Pediatrics is similar, just more vaccinations.  It can be scary to break out into a new specialty but with your background you should pick it up quickly!
I have not heard of any software either, and I agree with everyone, wait to see what your clients use or at the very least wait till you sign a client, and if they want you to use your own software then you can purchase something.

A few years back I was part of new billing company, the founder was set on getting a software as soon as the business was registered, she wouldn't listen to anyone on waiting, that ended up costing us over $1000 before she finally listens and cancel till we get the first client.

I say, shop around, request demos and keep a list of what you like till you get that first client and decide.

Hello All,

I'm new here, had a billing company with a partner a few years ago, but had to step away from it, been working in the mental health billing for over 15 years now, I originally went to school for coding but somehow I neglected the coding portion a bit and focused solely on billing, love it. I am studying to take the coding exam soon and I am now trying to step out of my comfort zone. In the process of starting a new company, haven't started yet and out of the blue an old friend reached out to me to help out with billing for a family practice, she knows i have no experience in the area but she insists, so I am not going to say no and I'm going to learn all I can about this new territory. Been going through the forum, I must say, l'm loving it, tons of useful info from everyone.

I purchased Alice and Michelle's book on contract back then but never got to read the whole thing, I'm about to dive in again along with all the goodies from this forum.
