Who can establish a home health care agency?

To put it simply, just about anybody. You don't have to be a healthcare professional. However, home health care is not one of those businesses anyone can get into for selfish reasons. It is a highly regulated and people oriented business designed to help humanity.

Certificate of Need (CON) is not required in my State - What shall I do?

Even though Certificate of Need is not required in your State, your State Department of Health may require formal licensing. However, to bill Medicare and or Medicaid for services rendered, you need to be certified. In that wise, you need to be approved to receive your Medicare and Medicaid certification number. Download your copy of the Home Health Care Guide as soon as possible.

Employment, Background Check, and Training?

Background check is required on all potential employees. In some cases, there are some individuals trained and licensed by the government while in incarceration. As the employer, you should try as much as possible to understand the nature of their offence and use your best judgment. If you are still not sure about what to do, contact your lawyer for legal advise.

What are the functions of a Medical Billing Company?

In simple term, the main function of a Medical Billing company is to help healthcare providers and organizations process patient/client information in order to get paid on time. The term "healthcare providers" means Physicians, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Chiropractors, Nursing Practitioners, Dentist, Medical Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Occupational or Speech Therapists. It also include healthcare businesses such as: Ambulatory Services, Durable Medical Equipment Suppliers, Medical and Surgical Suppliers, Medical Laboratories and Clinics. And organizations such as Nursing Homes, Home Health Care Agencies, Rehabilitation Centers, Hospice Care Centers, and Hospitals. Claims filing to private insurance companies and government sponsored programs such as Medicare and Medicaid consist of the main business of a Medical Billing Service Company. However, we cannot ignore the importance of good record keeping - medical and otherwise to justify why we bill for whatever condition. Also, part of Medical Billing company's job is to make sure clients maintain compliance with whatever government rules and regulations there are.

Is Medical Billing a business for those in healthcare only?

No. To say that Medical Billing Service and Practice Management is a business reserved for healthcare professionals is simply not true. Regardless of your background, to be successful in medical billings, you will need:

  1. Knowledge of medical coding procedure.
  2. Computer knowledge and moderate typing speed.
  3. Marketing skills and sales knowledge necessary to get clients.

Training is available here at MedNet Healthcare Systems
