EZ Claim Billing Software and Scheduler – Affordable Software for the Small Budgets
Posted Mar 17 2009 3:53pm
If you are on a strict budget, there is software that can help you out, EZClaim. I have used and installed this software a client locations and it does what is says it does. It is not practice management, but rather advanced billing software. You can find a link to EZClaim under the resources area on the right hand side. There are 2 versions, one for paper billing and the Advanced version, which is what I recommend and it can also be installed over an office network. Many other systems can also connect to EZClaim.
This is what the software looks like, pretty straight forward and will work with both EZClaim’s clearinghouse and most others. Originally when I was still writing software, I integrated the program with my EMR, so I can speak first hand from that side of the coin. If you are just a one PC office and only need billing on one computer you can get started pretty inexpensively for $395.00.
For additional computers, additional licenses can be added, and they are a bit less than the first license purchased with an add on price. A 30 day trial is available for download.
The add on for Quick Books could certainly prove useful in not having to re-enter the same data twice!
This is what the main screen of the program looks like for EZClaim Advanced Billing.
In addition to the billing software, EZClaim also has a Scheduler that integrates. This is nice as you already have your patients already loaded from the EZClaim Billing software if you add the Scheduler later and the same would apply for the reverse with the Scheduler added first.
The Scheduler is pretty easy to work with and has drag and drop features. You can customize colors and a detail of what is owed and the insurance carrier is show for each patient on the left side.
When working with the Scheduler, you can easily bring up EZClaim Billing Software in the same screen too.
Also, if you happen to use Amazing Charts for your EMR, it also integrated with EZClaim. You can use both if you are on a small budget, but need something to get started without a huge investment. Both companies have active user forums where you can compare notes and find suggestions and answers with other users and offer a 30 day download trial.
As times and money are tight right now, I just thought it was well worth mentioning some healthcare software that is available that is comparatively inexpensive to use and get started. BD
