We will provide interim billing services, such as charge entry, payment entry, denials in the event that you lose staff due to lay offs, firing or resignation. We will also assist in screening, interviewing and hiring an appropriate replacement.

We can train in house billers in proper billing practices, balancing, workflow, coding, modifiers and standard billing protocols.
