Billing Statement
« on: October 21, 2009, 05:19:29 PM »
I'm having a hard time managing patient billing statement. When sending out patient statements, do you send them out every month for all patients or do you constantly sending them out whenever a patient has a past due.

Yikes if you send out as you go you'll be driving yourself madd. Once a month via batch is all I do. I also do soft collections so I run report and look at the aging report and send letters when needed.
When I first started it was with a small solo provider and I didn't really know better but I did the statements as I went and posted payments, but after my second client I knew that was not going to be productive :)

This is what I've been doing also and it's driving me crazy. I knew there was a better way to do it. Once a month would be way cheaper as far as ink and papers and this can also save a lot of time.

it also prevents duplicate bills going out depending on your system. Some systems are able to put you on a billing cycle. if you manually send out a ticket after you post, that client can get another bill in 2 days depending on the cycle.
