The Lifecycle of an Insurance Claim

The Lifecycle of an Insurance Claim

Filing insurance claims can be intimidating, but they don’t have to be! Your Healthy Bytes billing allies are here to walk you through the lifecycle of a claim, starting with steps to take the moment you schedule your new client appointment.

Discussing Coverage with Clients in the New Year

Discussing Coverage with Clients in the New Year

The new year is just around the corner! As such, your clients may come to you with questions about their coverage for the remainder of the calendar year and heading into the new year, since many insurance plans will “re-set” come January 1st. How do you know how many nutrition counseling appointments your client is allotted for the remainder of this year? And what does coverage look like come January 1st – has anything changed?

Copayments: What You Need to Know

Copayments: What You Need to Know

How do you know whether to collect a copayment from your client? And if you do need to collect a co-pay, when do you collect it? Let’s dive in!  

Whether or not your client is required to pay a co-pay, or a fixed amount that one pays for a covered healthcare service after the deductible has been met, is determined by the client’s health insurance plan.

Billing Secondary Insurance

Billing Secondary Insurance

You may have clients who have health insurance coverage via multiple insurance plans. Why might your client be covered under two plans? One reason may be they have primary insurance through their own employer, and secondary coverage via their spouse’s or partner’s insurance plan. They may also be a dependent under another person’s plan.
