The work you refer to in that quote - 1.) do you mean when you put in the DX and CPT codes and link them up and then send them to the clearinghouse?  That work?  2.) Are you concerned about whether the software / servers / clearinghouse(s) that you are using, through Kareo, are located offshore?

First let me be clear, these are concerns on mine and my clients behalf, they are regardless of legal issues., have not gotten that far.    We are actually concerned with any connection to offshore in regards to ANY information (PHI) being sent overseas.

Linda, I know your position on collecting fee slips and sending them offshore to have foreigners type the codes into the billing software and connect them.  I was wondering if your comment in question above meant that you had the same attitude toward server farms that might be located offshore, even if you were the one typing in the codes for your doctors - such as you might do with Kareo if their server farms were located offshore.

You said We are actually concerned with any connection to offshore in regards to ANY information (PHI) being sent overseas.  I take that to mean your concern extends to server farms that might be located offshore - since doctors' data would be stored on those offshore servers.

No congrats to them! they just doubled there price for nothing just because they saw that they have a lot of clients! the billing services need to switch away from a company like this!

I wondered if that is really the case.  I saw on their website they got rid of all of their pricing but the $299 a month option but I didn't know if they still offered the other options for people that really wanted them or already have them. 
Does that mean that if you were on the $149 or $199 a month, or even the $69 a month one where you pay for claims, that they aren't grandfathering people in?  Does everyone have to pay $299 a month per provider for existing ones or is that just for new providers that you sign up?

I dont know what they do with existing customers, but you cant be from now their client for less then $299 a month per provider! and for that price it better to go with e-clinical works.

I've just also found out that OfficeAlly has also begun their own billing company.

Is the charge only for using their PMS/EHR per month or does it also include all the scheduling, scanning, billing and posting for a provider?

The $299.00 is only for new customers. No additional burden on existing customers. You can check that out here.  http://www.kareo.com/terms/pricing-policy

For their billing services.. they list: 4-8% of Collections based on claim volume and specialty..Wonder how they are handling that in the states that prohibit physicians from fee-splitting arrangements?

Wonder how they are handling that ...

Let's see .... (average collections for last 36 months times 7%) divided by 12 = new fixed month fee - subject to review and revision every 12 months.
