(Tx and ar)
I have searched everywhere, and I cannot find the state requirements to start a medical billing company in Texas and Arkansas. Can you please tell me where to start? Do I need a certification, permit, home inspection, and or licensing. Is there a checklist available?
Thanks in advance,
I’m not aware of any state that has specific requirements or regulations for medical billing. Most states, counties, and cities do have requirements for obtaining a business license. In my state I pay a small fee to the state, county, and the city I reside in for a business license.
As far as professional registration I’m not aware of any state that regulates or requires credentials specifically for medical billing – but I’ve only had to deal with Georgia and Alabama. However credentials such as coding those awarded by AAPC or AHIMA do help in establishing as a credible and competent professional when marketing your business.
Typically information on the requirements for doing business in a state can be found with the Secretary of State’s office. For Texas this is:
for Arkansas it’s:
Hope this helps.
