Midwife Billing & Business!
Thank you for visiting us. We may have a new name, but we have been serving the midwifery community since 1997—making us one of the oldest midwife billing services in the country. The success of your business is our primary priority and, as such, we are very excited to be able to offer midwives the same services that larger medical practices enjoy for a fraction of the cost. In addition to our full billing service, we now offer online appointment scheduling, inventory tracking, document management, secure messaging system, tracking of birth outcomes and other statistics, and a growing resource center for you and your clients.
Billing Service—we love our new and powerful web-based billing program which ‘scrubs’ claims before automatically sending them to the insurance company. Claim status is also obtained automatically within days of submission. No longer will you have to wait weeks to find out whether the claim was accepted, rejected, or denied! This also allows us to focus on any problem claims much sooner. And since it’s all web-based, you have password-protected access to your account. You can see when claims were billed and the status of each claim in real time, greatly enhancing the efficiency between your office and ours.
