Medical and Dental Billing Services
Serapis Billing services can help increase your practice revenue, and reduce your patient's out-of-pocket expenses. Outsourcing billing services to experts removes all the burdens of learning coding, filing corrections, phone-call follow-ups, and insurance claims chasing out of the office. Not to mention when you use experts for claims processing your success rate is greatly increased with minimal staff training, and with very little cost to the office. Our specialty trained billing specialists can process all dental, medical, primary-secondary, collaborative, "cross-over", workman's compensation, contracted, and liability insurance claims.
Our billing services are offered through a secured cloud based log-in portal allowing clinicians access to their billing records anywhere, and at anytime, from any internet connected device with NO hardware or software updates required. The Serapis integrated templates streamline data entry so the entire process is fast and effective at creating a strong case towards a paid claim. Our billing software is designed to be simple enough to be used chair-side in real time, but we won't hold it against you if you upload data when you have free time. The entire process takes approximately 7-15 minutes depending on complexity.
It's as simple as 1. Verify Eligibility
All the office needs to do is upload the data from the patient appointment into our servers through the portal, and our billing team takes over from there with preparing, processing, and claims submission. Your claim is always processed through a Medical or Dental Specific clearing house prior to insurance submission. This ensures a higher rate of approval and a faster turn around time to paid. If a correction is needed, the Serapis team will handle all required processing AND In the case of a denial, we pursue claims for up to one year or until final decision.

After start-up Serapis has two levels of billing services, either on a per-claim basis or on a fixed monthly contracted level. Your office can choose their commitment level based on need.

Contracted Billing is a simple fixed monthly expense irregardless of the amount of claims processed.
Both of our Billing levels include the capability to pre-authorize claims, and verify eligibility.
