Clearinghouse fees are not included.  They are connected to both Office Ally and Availity, both of which are free.  Ones that have fees, the fees are the liability of the provider/billing service.

I have never liked MEDISOFT.......

ME EITHER!!!!!!  This was my start off mistake when I started my business. Even the newer versions are not much better. I don't know how anyone works without pulling their hair out of their hair with it!

If I use my clients software as the billing company, do I still need to sign a contract with the clearing house? How would I proceed if I use my clients software, what would my next steps be?

If you are billing from the provider's software and they are already enrolled with the clearing house then you are just an extension of that (I believe! ~ now I'm having brain freeze!).  You could contact the clearinghouse to be sure, but I believe if the provider already enrolled their software and you are submitting from the same system you don't need to enroll separately.

I'm heartened to see all these good reviews of Kareo . I've been looking them over and I've been looking for reviews. Guess I came to the right place. I've got some other software to look at but your comments are very helpful.

I see no one has recently posted anything about Kareo. I am an existing Kareo customer and have had multiple headaches from this software. I have extensive billing experience, many, many, many, years and seems to me Kareo's software is written primarily for physician billing and facility billing was a second thought.

I have a significant role at a billing agency and it was my responsibility to choose a software. I researched and researched before I chose Kareo software and now I am having major regrets after (4 months) in using it. We are still billing through Office Ally because I keep hitting brick walls when it comes to Kareo's "Encounter" feature. It absolutely sucks. Why I have to go thru Soooo many screens (uncheck this) enter data here to manipulate info way over there) is simply ridiculous to complete a simple billing task/change/adjustment...you know the common daily nature of this business.

Yes I do have experience with many different billing softwares and never have I had so many headaches that Kareo has caused. I find their staff to be inept (having no real billing knowledge) but rather being trained just enough to be able to tell you what the software should do but never being able to offer any suggestions/solutions/customizing to fit our specific billing needs.

Completely frustrated---- business is booming and yet I dont have the adequate software I need  >:(       Kareo has really fallen below all my expectations!

I always tell people looking into Kareo (as they are even up front about this) they will not be able to help you with medical billing. They assume all users are experienced, So they def are NOT the software for someone needing further help OR the new billing company. As for the other things, I've never used another program that allowed me to work so quickly and efficiently PLUS produce the reports I need. Perhaps that is where some billing centers differ. To get the best reports there need be more input and more customization, some would rather have less input/screens and sacrifice the reports, depends on what you need. I've moved clients over to them with great ease and only had some glitches when it came to data conversions on a few not so data conversion friendly.  I don't do any hospital or facility billing so i really can't comment on how they handle that.

I think Total MD is the way to go. I think its awesome. I have not seen a better software. Their ability to do practically any report and customize reports is amazing. It is perfect for a new company. I have been in business for over 2 yrs now, and have been with Total Md for over a year and i have no intentions to ever going to anything else because they have all I need and great customer service. And if you are just starting. It is $99 month per user and you can add all the practices and doctors you want, but when you have more people working at the same time as you, then you will need to add another user. I just think it is great, and I so much wish someone would have told me about this software when I began. It would have saved me alot of headache!

My top vote is Kareo as well.  I always recommend going with the LONG term goal because in long run, conversions are costly, expensive and NOT without headaches!  Make sure you get a few different demo's and think of the future of your business.

Sorry for chiming in so late, as I am new to the forum.  Let me suggest one that I do not think has been mentioned -- Nuesoft Technologies product called NueMD.  I would recommend demoing any product before purchasing.  Here is a link to their free 4-minute quick demo http://www.nuesoft.com/forms/request-demo.html

We started our billing company 8 mths ago and have three substance abuse treatment facilities we bill for using Medisoft.
We are still have issues sending claims electronically and I'm not sure if it's the software our the back up support trying to resolve the issues. Especially diificult sending to BCBS because they want all billing both medical and counseling on the UB-92.
I am trying to decide if we should switch to something else. This is a specialized field and it's  a litttle different than the typical doctor or doctor's office billing. I have a competitor using Collaborate MD and he's happy with it.
Any other feedback would be apprecited

Does Medisoft allow you to bill in the UB04 format (they replaced the UB92's several years ago)?  What clearinghouse are you using?  I would go to the clearinghouse and start there.  It is hard to advise because we don't know what the actual issues are.  I wouldn't recommend switching without knowing the specific problems you are having.  It would be like throwing away the lamp because the bulb blew.   :)

I have used several different softwares.  Advanced MD is my favorite so far.  This product is a very mature practice management system.
It has the features needed for larger group practices including:
batch processing
claims manager
denial tracking
collections module.

I think AdvancedMD is also a very good software, probably top 5 out there.  My main problem with them is price for billing services.  There are options as good or maybe even better (depending on the needs of the billing company) for significantly less money.
