Like Linda said, there are a lot of variables.  Is the doc full or part time (what do they consider full time)?  Are they doing therapy or just rx's.  I also agree, too many can be rx happy and not spend enough time with the pts.

A lot of billing services will start by targeting mental health providers.  They are fairly easy in terms of billing as they only use a handful of cpt codes, and not a wide range of icd 9's.  There are social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists and they tend to be plentiful.  Most of these providers do not have a lot of office staff since they don't see as many patients an hour like a family practice dr.  Starting with newer drs is good too, since they usually need more help.  You can offer to assist them with credentialing, or other start up processes.

Good luck!

Michelle that is very helpful information.  I am restarting starting my business from home and I am rebuilding everything ( does that make since  ??? ).  I am working on contracts, compliance plans and I think I narrowed it down to what software I want to use.  Now I am looking up providers to market to.  This was very good information.
