Starting a home medical billing company in tx and ar

by Clarissia
(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,


Hi Clarissia,

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.
