Medical Billing Service Owners

Overview

Medical billing service owners, or medical billers, help doctors and other health care professionals obtain payment for services. They send bills to patients, private insurance companies, Medicare, and other insurers. Using special software, they file insurance claims electronically via the Internet. They keep files on patients and insurers, and use medical codes when filing claims. Most billers work from their home offices, though some work in the offices of doctors and clinics. Medical billers are sometimes known as electronic billing professionals, claims processing professionals, and medical provider consultants.
