The project will offer training on the core components of implementing third-party billing systems, the common areas where billing systems function poorly and improvement techniques that work.
Providers who participated in the first round received NIATx coaching and support to either create or improve a billing system.
Participants had a variety of experience in working with third-party payers, ranging from little to none to extensive.
At the end of the ten-month collaborative, all participating teams reported success in submitting claims, increasing collections, and reducing denials from private insurers and Medicaid.
“Through our work with the NIATx fee-for-service learning collaborative, we were able to gain understanding of the complicated Medicaid system and successfully become a Medicaid provider. This new found knowledge and confidence will help us as we navigate the private insurance panels and further diversify our revenue sources.” - Hilary Pick, Clinic Manager, Guest House of Milwaukee Counseling Clinic
