Improve billing for physical therapy

How to Improve Billing at Your Physical Therapy Office

As you approach the end of summer and review the performance of your private practice, does your billing and collections show that you’re having your “Best Year Yet?”

Luckily, improving billing services for physical therapy is easily solved by having a full-time specialist onboard doing the heavy lifting — or, conversely, bringing in the experts to remove the burden from your team and ensure no collections slip through the cracks.

Either way, this doesn’t happen without dedicated experts on the task.

–FYI: Those very same experts at MEG are currently offering an exclusive one-hour consultation with private practitioners to assess their current billing setup, evaluate options, tools and talent and finally, to provide actionable next steps for collecting more revenue from your patients. The call includes some powerful, free resources, so don’t miss out!

So, if the goal is to increase revenue by staying on top of collections and accounts receivable, then it will take a concerted effort and investment of time and resources from leadership to bring this solution to life. The two most common ways to approach this need, as previously mentioned, is to hire or outsource. 

We’ve compiled a comparison of different billing options for your physical therapy practice.This comparison reviews in-house billing vs. outsourced billing, and then compares MEG Business Billing specifically, as we are a PT-specialist billing provider first and foremost.

There are great billing service providers for physical therapy, and outsourcing your billing and collections is often the right move for small or growing practices. Whoever is at the helm, your billing team must be held accountable to ensure they are consistently delivering on their service level agreement to get results. This means actively measuring their output. 

We recommend using these tactics to measure results:

  • An Accounts Receivable Report
  • The 15 Percent Rule
  • Making Collection Calls
  • Balanced Billing at the Front Desk
