Insurance Credentialing & Billing Fundamentals

Event Date:

September 21, 2020

Event Time:

4:00 pm

If you have been wanting to open your own private practice, but are intimidated by the mere thought of insurance credentialing and billing, you’re not alone! Despite hundreds and thousands of hours of clinical training, many of us were never taught the basics of running a private practice.

When Danielle Kepler, founder of Be Your Own Biller left group practice after three years, she too was clueless about insurance credentialing and billing. Little over 3 months later, she successfully switched over more than 10 insurance panels to her solo practice and applied to about 10 more insurance panels and Employee Assistance Programs. She also signed up for an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and taught herself how to verify benefits and bill the insurance companies.

In this exclusive 3-part workshop series with Danielle, she will walk you through the fundamentals of insurance credentialing and billing, so that you have the tools to be your own biller and build a successful private practice. Join all 3 workshops for a full suite of knowledge, or attend the one you need.
