Increase Payer Reimbursements

Harris understands that achieving maximum possible payer reimbursement is vital to the continued mission of behavioral, mental and public health. More compensation from payers means more services for your clients, patients and community. Outsourced billing services in the United States through SMART Health Claims or EmpowerMax Billing provides customers with all the benefits of Harris technology while our team does most of the work to increase your funds.

Lower Costs and Invest the Savings in Serving Clients with EmpowerMax Billing

Designed for behavioral and mental health, our EmpowerMax Billing service in the U.S. enables your organization to go far in eliminating issues all too common with in-house billing, e.g., key personnel absence or loss, under- or over-staffing, insufficient or disorganization in the department, and inadequate or altogether lack of billing supervision. EmpowerMax Billing provides a team of billing experts to handle medical claims billing, cash application, corrections and follow-up for you.

Let Our Team Do the Work While You Recapture Funds with SMART Health Claims

Our SMART Health Claims billing team specializes in billing services for public health to achieve maximum possible reimbursement for services like the Vaccines For Children (VFC) program. Using streamlined SMART Health Claims, your staff continues to interact with patients, collecting client data and detail for services rendered. But with our billing services, your employees merely scan forms and upload them to our billing team through secure means. Then we do the billing data entry, scrub and submit claims, follow-up on rejections, manage denials, and post payments.

You… collect reimbursements.

EmpowerMax Billing

Benefit From Behavioral & Mental Health Billing Expertise

EmpowerMax Billing offers many years of experience in behavioral and mental health revenue cycle management, providing an outpatient mental health medical billing solution you can trust. Our team has unsurpassed knowledge of Harris EMR EHR software applications and the various aspects of behavioral and mental health billing as they relate to professional services such as addictions treatment, intellectual/developmental disabilities (e.g., autism), psychiatric rehabilitation, and more.

Insulate Against Billing Staff Turnover

If yours is like many other behavioral and mental health organizations, just one or two staff members manage the bulk of medical claims billing. Should such key personnel leave the office, their loss can wreak havoc on your entire billing process, even interrupting critical cash flow. By outsourcing your outpatient mental health billing service to EmpowerMax Billing, you get the peace of mind of knowing that your billing service will always operate at peak efficiency — no more worries about employee turnover.

Get Paid Appropriately & Quickly

Do you constantly have to deal with slow or insufficient payments? By increasing billing efficiency and streamlining the collection process, EmpowerMax Billing can help to ensure you receive prompt, proper payment and reimbursement for all behavioral and mental health services rendered by your organization. Achieving significant improvement in cash flow and adding transparency to the billing process will have a positive impact on your organization’s bottom line.

Decrease Denials & Outstanding Accounts Receivables

Too often inefficient billing and claims management practices contribute to claim denials, leading to a loss of revenue. By handling labor-intensive tasks, e.g., filing claims, working unpaid claims and filing appeals of denied claims, the EmpowerMax Billing team relieves your organization of burdensome billing and follow-up. Why deal with payers if you don’t have to? Our extensive knowledge of the claims process and outpatient billing procedures can dramatically reduce the number of denials, while also lowering your outstanding Accounts Receivables.

Reduce Billing Expenses & Focus on What Matters — Clients

Do you realize how much it is costing you by doing your own billing? In addition to the upfront labor costs, there are also a number of hidden expenditures — system configuration and maintenance, clearinghouse costs, occupancy costs, keeping up with changing industry/payer requirements, staff turnover and training, etc. With EmpowerMax Billing to lower such time and money expenses as well as increase revenue, your staff will have more time to focus on what matters most: serving your clients.
