How do I get started building a medical billing company?
I want to start my own medical billing company. How do I get help from experts and vendors in getting my business set up and start operating?
Find out where they meet off- and online and meet them there. Find out how it's already done with success, what do they use, how do they attract attention and them make it better. Start finding the needed information.
Have you confirmed that there is a need for such a service in your vicinity?
Hi Robert. I work in the same field for the past 11 years as a Human resources specialist leading a healthcare bpo. I know the basics and have close to 200 agents who were into healthcare operations. Thus came the idea to start a company. If i get a couple of clients , i would get them more than the desired quality.
Sorry if this sounds over-simple . . . but . . .
Why not ask them for help?
It's amazing sometimes how much people just want to help other people.
Until you ask the question, that answer is always no!
Ask specific questions in areas that you need help.
And ask what areas they might need help in that you could assist with.
I am guessing you have already done your market research. The market research should not focus only on the demographics profiling but also on the psycho graphics profiling (fears, frustrations, struggles, Wants...) of your market. Knowing this well, will assure you for a market domination for your business. Then set all your marketing tools base on the main WANT you are looking to satisfy with your service. Stay innovative through your business growth with your service. Hope this help
I would look at which states you want to bill in. Then go to each state's department of commerce website as you will need to get licensed in each state to be able to bill. From there, I would post on LinkedIn or a similar site to find people who know how to bill, what software you need to get started, etc. That should get you moving in the right direction. Good luck.
Id start with your logo and branding, website etc. If you need a designer, feel free to connect - Im always available to help. :)
Do you have any experience in medical billing? If not, you can get experience (work for a medical billing company) or buy it (hire a paid consultant or buy a course).
Vendor relationships and such will be important, but likely not your first step.
If you're asking for a referral to a good course or consultant, you might reach out to owners of existing medical billing companies and ask for recommendations. You might look for forums or groups geared toward supporting medical billing professionals. You might just start by Googling it.
What's your first step?
