Why Outsource

ABA billing is complex, requiring expert knowledge and expensive resources. The insurance industry is constantly changing the ABA billing and coding rules, reimbursement rates, and authorization requirements, making reimbursement for ABA therapy services a constant struggle. New delivery models such as telehealth create additional complexity to this process. Handling billing internally is a distraction to ABA providers who want to focus on therapy for their patients.

Outsourcing these complex processes to an ABA billing specialist provides many benefits:

  • Allows you to spend more time focusing on your patients’ therapy
  • Maximizes the reimbursement you receive for your services while shortening the time to collect
  • You get a turn-key solution with software tools, payer knowledge, and expertise in all revenue cycle functions
  • You avoid the payroll costs of an expensive billing department and pay for services only when the insurance company pays you
  • As you expand, the outsourced partner expands with you

Missing Piece has been managing the revenue cycle for ABA and other behavioral health providers since 2009. We collect the maximum reimbursement available and proactively follow up with the insurance company on all payment issues. Our clients are located across the United States so we have ABA billing and reimbursement expertise in each state’s Medicaid, commercial insurance, and other government plans. Our experts in each area of the revenue cycle, including eligibility, contracting, authorization, appeals and patient billing, take the entire burden of the revenue cycle off your hands. Whether you are moving from in-house billing to an outsourced billing partner, changing your outsourced billing partner, or starting your practice, outsource your revenue cycle to the experts at Missing Piece.

What Clients Say..

Like most small businesses, our success is predicated upon personal relationships and a consistent revenue stream.  Since opening, Missing Piece Billing has been a great partner and an essential element of both.  They guided us through the billing and authorization process and took the lead on contracting and patient invoicing, allowing us to focus on serving our families.  As our company has grown from 1 to 100, I can say with great confidence that we would not be where we are today without them.

Missing Piece delivers. Your problems are solved before you even notice, and you benefit from knowledge gained by Missing Piece via other clients’ problems even before they are yours to suffer. They are ahead of the game at every turn, be it denials for improperly reviewed claims, contracting issues, or auth utilization, they have you covered. We could not replace their services with ten full time staffers, and they cost far less than that each month.

When we began the process to become a Medicaid and insurance provider, a friend advised us to call Missing Piece for help.  As it turns out, that was the best piece of advice we got in relation to this journey.  The folks at Missing Piece have been there every step of the way, providing us with guidance, support, and taking many hours of work onto their workload.  We are so grateful!
