THE VALUE OF OUTSOURCING YOUR BILLING

The decision to outsource your billing process deserves thoughtful consideration.

Among the points you should review are your expenses for in-house billing.  These include direct staff costs such as

  • salaries,
  • temporary      coverage during staff absences, and
  • rent      for billing department space.

Then there are the additional checks you write for

  • employee      benefits,
  • billing      hardware and software,
  • frequent      and necessary equipment and application upgrades,
  • tech      support and maintenance, and
  • ongoing      staff training to keep your employees current on coding rules and      mandates.

There also are the hidden costs for new employee learning curves, time off, and internal employee politics.
