Understanding Health Insurance

This was the first book I purchased when getting into medical billing. It's probably one of the most comprehensive references to Health Insurance Billing available. I still refer to this after 10 years in the business. Probably one of the best investments a medical biller can make.

Medical billing book subjects can range from medical billing and coding to specific instructions for medical claims billing to starting a medical billing business.

Conventional books from traditional sources are now being challenged but ebooks. Medical billing books delivered electronically are popular as you can download your book in electronic form instantly. These are typically in PDF format but can also be in the standard word processing format.

We offer two free medical billing books on our Free Stuff page; A Medical Billing Terms Glossary and a Medical Billing and Coding Careers Guide - both 15 page PDF books. There's also an Insurance Claim Flowchart to help explain the claim process in graphical terms. These don't offer the kind of detail given in the books listed above, but they do hopefully complement them.

Consider The Author
An important consideration before purchasing a medical billing book is the source and author. Examine the credentials of the author or any testimonials or feedback from others who have purchased their books. Any reputable author should share their credentials and accomplishments.

Whats the authors background? Do they have real experience in the medical billing or coding field or are they just trying to sell you something?

That's why I recommend the medical billing books above from Alice and Michele. These ladies have been in the trenches of starting an operating a medical billing business. And their writing reflects it - practical, to the point, easy to understand, and applicable.

It's hard to find one comprehensive book that covers all the topics in medical billing. Introductory or basic books should cover topics like the terminology, how claims are processed, different types of insurers, HIPAA, what codes are and how they are used, etc.

It should include a good description of the billing process, responsibilities, and what to expect as a medical billing specialist.

If wanting to start a home business, get a book written by someone who has started a successful billing business or currently operates one. Their advice will be a lot more valuable than someone who writes a book about starting any business and tries to apply it to medical billing. The unique challenges and character of medical billing can only be explained by someone who has experienced it.

Look for medical billing books with useful information on contracts (this could be a separate book in itself), pricing your services, how much you can expect to make, whats required to start a business, software, clearinghouses, etc.

Marketing Your Services
Marketing a medical billing business is a topic worthy of a book on its own. It's one of the most important aspects to a successful medical billing business. A book that gives good marketing ideas and advice (like Alice & Michele’s above) is invaluable. Getting clients is one of the biggest challenges when starting a medical billing business.

Learning techniques to convince a doctor to give your billing service a chance is invaluable. Good marketing books should have innovative marketing techniques, how to find clients and what they want to hear, what to say when you meet with a doctor or office manager, and services to offer to distinguish you from the competition.

In summary if you want to learn about all the different facets of billing, obtain good books from reputable authors and plan on using multiple resources to reach your career objectives - whether to get a steady job or start a business.
