medical billing business books author image Who Am I & Why Should You Follow My Advice ?

 
 
 

Great question and I would be shocked if you didn’t want to know. Hello, my name is Paul and I thank you for taking the time to visit today!

 

I could list all the accomplishments that have made me the medical management consultant I am today, what I’ve gone through in starting my own (medical billing, coding and transcription) businesses & why I have been mentoring others since 2002 but you can find that info out at: more about PGH. My reasoning for not doing so here is very simple:

 

My personal mission is to help you decide based on pure facts if starting a medical billing business is really the right business for you to pursue and if so… Show you how to do it with the assistance of the medical billing books and reference materials listed below!

 

Lastly, knowing that everyone learns differently (I am a visual/hands-on learner) I have included online course for those that rather interactive learning over reading a book.

 

OK, lets get down to the real business at hand…

Books On Setting Up Your Medical Billing Business Topics By Specificity

I briefly cover the importance of this topic on another page within this website because alot of people skip this step so please visit: https://medicalbillingbizhq.org/medical-billing-business-plan/

The way most courses and medical billing books teach medical billing is from a general view and is geared to you working for or with a general practitioner.

How To Input Information Into Your Medical Billing Software Books and Courses

 
 

Medical billing paperback - Medical Insurance Coverage - Proper Payment Posting & Accounting image
Proper Payment Posting & Accounting = Once you learn how to work with medical billing software must also lean the proper ways of inputting (posting) payments, adjustments, withhold amounts, and rejection codes supplied by the insurance carriers into the software you use.

Additionally, any other information supplied by the insurance carriers or third party payers, either electronically or manually, is also posted to the patient accounts in accordance with the information on the patient’s EOB.

 

Get this process wrong and it will negatively impact the patient, your client and your business reputation so you must take the time to master how to post payments correctly.

How To Medical Billing Books & Courses On Marketing A Medical Billing Business In 2017

 
 

The #1 question I receive on a daily basis from people that I Do Not mentor is “Can you give me tips on marketing my medical billing business?”

 

There are several reason why they are experiencing these issues however my students have learned what must be done to achieve the positive results they do during their marketing stage. Their learning curve was cut in half by mastering the techniques discussed in the 3 medical billing resources listed below.

 

Since there are circumstances that negatively affect the desired marketing outcomes my students are required to join at the very least one active medical billing association or forum (which you can read more about at: https://medicalbillingbizhq.org/medical-billing-associations/).

 

My thinking here is simple, things that work for me might not for you, you live in a different state or local where potential clients don’t respond to the marketing materials I send out and a ton of other reasons.

 

If you join a organization or forum there are other members in your area that will provide you with examples of what is working right now to gain them additional clients to work with. There is strength in numbers and this is a way to become part of the masses.

Medical Coding Books & Courses

 
 

Please Note: Medical billers do not need to know all the information that a certified medical coder is required to know! However…

 

I firmly believe that the reason my students become the successes they are is due to the fact that they are familiar with and have a basic understanding of the medical coding process.

 

The medical billing resources listed below don’t try to teach you all the diagnosis and CPT codes instead you will learn what a medical biller needs to know about these codes, how they can affect the billing process, how to understand them and how to look them up in order to assist their client in submitting clean insurance claims.

 

The 2nd link/image is for a full blow medical coding course. My students are always asking if I could refer them to a great online coding training program that can be completed at their pace as a way to build upon the medical billing skills they have so I listed it in this section for those that are interested.
