Hello all,
I was hoping to get input on people's experiences with billing services vs hiring employee to do billing.

We currently have a billing service that charges 8% of everything that's collected, (including what we collect in the clinic for copays etc.)  The service is good and I like the reliability, but it is pricey so I am contemplating hiring an employee to do this.

Anyone have thoughts on this?  Anyone know if you hire an employee, can it be a smart competent person, or does it have to be someone with billing experience--i am not sure how hard it is?   I know our EHR (Eclinical) offers billing services but I haven't been very happy with their customer support so not eager to use them.
