There is a lot to manage in any chiropractic practice. Coding, compliance, billing… all take significant time and effort and can monopolize doctors’ valuable time! A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that for every hour doctors spend seeing patients, they spend two doing non-clinical administrative tasks.
“The administrative burden placed on health care professionals is completely unsustainable,” said Donald M. Reno, DC, Executive Director, MichiCare. “Is that why you became a chiropractor? To do paperwork?”
That’s why MichiCare, a wholly owned subsidiary of the MAC has created MichiCare Service Organization (MSO), a management services organization designed with the special needs of chiropractors in mind. MichiCare Service Organization offers turn-key solutions for new and existing chiropractic practices, helping your practices thrive in the ever-changing health care environment of the 21st Century.
MichiCare Service Organization can take on the administrative and management functions currently bogging you down and costing you money! These services include:
- BILLING: Claims administration, coding, documentation, sourcing, collections, credentialing, provider enrollment, contract management, and more.
