Our Patient Billing Add-On Service

We provide your office a dedicated phone number for patients to call whenever they have questions about their statements or account balances. The phone number will have the same area code as your practice with the caller ID being the name of your dental practice — so when we return patient calls, they know that a representative of your dental office is calling.

It’s best to collect patient co-pays at the time of service, but often after insurance payments are posted patients may owe more. Let us help service your patient accounts receivable. Enroll in eAssist Patient Billing add-on service today.

    Patient Ledger Audits

    By request, we can audit a patient ledger for accuracy. Often we find that errors have occurred in previous ledger postings, which cause inaccuracies in your patient balances. There is a cost for this service. Patient ledgers are reviewed for origin
    of balance and we research transactions up to two years prior.

    Clean Bad Debt
    From Aging Report

    When an account is deemed uncollectible, the office is advised, and the patient account can then be transferred by the office to a collection agency – if desired. We either write off the account, or the office may transfer the balance to its desired collection agency. Regardless of the outcome, we actively manage all of your collectible receivables to ensure accurate accounts receivable reporting.

    Custom Letters
    Requesting Payment

    Patients who have outstanding balances – that you have deemed to be accurate – will receive two customized letters from us requesting payment. The purpose is to prompt the patient to call the billing line for clarification on the balance and to get your patients account receivable balances paid in full. Clients will review and approve all patient correspondence templates.

    Patient Phone Calls

    Patients with current balances due who have ignored statements will receive a series of two phone calls along with the customized letters. The goal is to motivate the patient to pay what they owe.

    Daily & Weekly
    Accountability Reports

    Daily emails and weekly summaries are sent to the doctor that describe who we have contacted, how many letters have been sent, how many phone calls were made, how much money has been collected, current patient accounts receivable balances, and who left the office without paying any of their portion. This information will help your office manager better manage the front desk staff, thus improving patient portion collections at the time of service.
