Now that the hurdles of getting the emr down pat are done (in a record breaking 4 days), I have to figure out how to actually submit claims to the insurers….my forms arrived today and I am beginning to build my fee schedule and then I can build my claims. By the end of the week I will have seen 110 people and I am thrilled that I will be able to pay the rent and my employees! Woo hoo!
Lucky for me, I have great support from e-MDs and on Monday I am going to have a conference call to drop my first set of claims to paper to mail off for payment…..keep your fingers crossed that there aren’t a million rejections!
Two other exciting things happened today….my permanent signs were installed (pictures tomorrow) and I was notified of the first newborn that will be a patient at my practice. I will head off to Beaumont tomorrow to see the little guy and welcome him into the world. What a joy my job is.
Thanks to all the families that have brought gifts of fruit and chocolate and plants and planters….my staff and I are LOVING all of them! I really love the community we are building together.
Eat chocolate, drink a glass of wine and each day will be your best!
