March 01, 2009
Author: Vanessa Best, CCS-P, CPC, President and CEO of Precision Healthcare Consultants www.precisionhcc.com with over 20 years medical office experience is a sought-after speaker and medical billing software trainer.
I think that the author, Vanessa Best, CCS-P, CPC, summed business ownership up well by saying that true lasting success requires forethought, careful planning and proper procedures that ensure continued growth. Of course this statement applies to all businesses but it in an industry full of rules and regulations, compliance and many other issues it is especially true for a medical billing business.
In this affordable e-book you will find topics that cover starting your business (company set-up, software selection etc), business plans, marketing, setting and negotiating fees, learning how to sell yourself and your business amongst many others. There are also exercises throughout the e-book to help you decide what your company name should be (more difficult than you think!), developing strategies for marketing and learning how to calculate your fees. Included are sections devoted to insurance terminology and Medicare general information help round out the e-book. Probably one of the most valuable sections of this book will be the samples found in the Sample Letters, forms and agreements section in the back. Here Ms. Best has provided several direct mail letters to physicians that you can use to introduce your services (your first client is always the hardest!) and other items such as a service agreement for electronic claims submission.
