Therap Allows for Seamless Transition to Fee-for-Service Billing

Join our free webinar on Fee-For-Service overview within Therap. It is a prevailing payment model for services in several states. Payments are unbundled and paid for separately, so every time patients have a doctor’s appointment, a surgical consultation, or a hospital stay, these third-party payers are billed for each visit, test, procedure, and treatment provided, even though some of these may not be needed, or supported by evidence-based data.

As the leader in EHR documentation and software solutions for I/DD service providers, Therap has an electronic billing system that will help agencies and providers across the U.S. get up and running with direct-Medicaid billing. Therap has trading partner agreements with Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) for Medicaid claim submission in several states. Therap is the billing agent for providers in more than 45 states including Virginia, West Virginia and New Jersey.

The Electronic Billing service assists providers funded by Medicaid. Agencies can create and send professional claims for a single or multiple individuals and for one or more of their service lines. Therap’s HIPAA-compliant billing system is based upon point-of-service documentation to ensure accuracy and integrity of service delivery. This allows for all billing claims to have appropriate documentation — backing up every claim that the provider would submit for billing.  

Therap’s Billing Features Include:

  • Calculate billing data from notes and attendance data entered by support staff
  • Track prior authorizations and service utilization
  • Submit claims directly to Medicaid
